    I remember the time when I wasn't able to download stuff but a friend of mine did. And he had heard and watched the video for SS and he wasn't even as big a fan as I am. And I was like WHY CAN'T I HEAR AND WATCH IT and I kept asking him to describe everything in the video to me hahahahaha!

    Then when I finally did, I remember being obsessed with the video and the song. I even learnt to sing it.

    And when the album came out, I heard the entire thing all the way through, rushed downstairs to my mother and said, "Carrie Underwood released a new album and it's so good. I'm so happy!" And she was like "Uh... alright." Hahahaha!

    CR reminds me of my previous room and how I used to listen to the entire album over there. Reading about her and the new songs. Still, when I listen to it, I immediately think of myself in that room listening to it. It was such a naive, nice time.

    I remember first listening to Flat On the Floor and then listening to it about 5 more times before I proceeded listening to the rest of the albums. I think it and Storyteller might be my two favorite albums. I remember that people identified Just A Dream as a Carrie song way before I think Carrie even saw herself as a "Storyteller".

    How could anyone forget Carrie Music Television. They debuted SS and played it exclusively for 6 hours, then Carrie took over CMT for the afternoon. Lol, I was so tired of SS I thought I might never watch that video again. CR was a fun era.

    Carnival Ride is still my favorite Carrie album as an entire, cohesive piece of art. So good - from start to finish! "You Won't Find This" is a special unreleased favorite gem of mine.

    The first Carrie song i've ever heard is from Carnival Ride, "Just A Dream". I remember watching an interview that Taylor did on Carrie on youtube and thinking: "wow she sounds so nice" so i searched the video and it was blocked internationally so i had to wait a few months to watch it but i fell in love with the song when i watched Carrie's performance on the CMAs and the rest is history. So, thanks Taylor for introducing me to Carrie ( )

    I remember waking up watching Carrie Music Television before school with So Small. My mom had the CD waiting in the car when she picked me up from school. I think I was in 7th grade and we took the long way home to listened.

    Interesting that you started this thread because Billboard just posted this article:

    That last line was basically Billboard saying Carrie has the 4th spot in the Country Female Mount Rushmore alongside Loretta, Dolly, and Reba.

    I will forever love I Know You Won't. When I first heard that song I had it on repeat and listened to it for hours. I was just mesmerized. And seeing and hearing her perform it live just added to my love of this song. It will forever be one of my most favorite Carrie songs.

    I got married in September 2017 and I was so desperate to have a Carrie song in my wedding. Nothing from SH fit and when I got married the only song out was SS. My wedding DJ didn't even have the song, lol. I had to send it to him! I used it for the parents' dance at my wedding (me and my husband each dancing with our moms).

    Also, I remember driving to Target on my lunch break to buy the album, popping it in the CD player in my car, and just being blown away by FOTF. I will say that the rest of the album (initially) didn't live quite up to the expectations that FOTF set as an opener, but I still love the album. It's probably my third favorite album behind BA and ST.

    And of course who could forget Carrie Music Television! Also, I adored the album cover. She just looks gorgeous on it. Probably my favorite album cover still, with ST a close second.

    I remember Carrie singing SS in that beautiful yellow dress!! I thought it was absolutely stunning!! The crowd didn't seem as thrilled with it, as I. Made me sad, and the "Protect Carrie", came out in me!

    I remember this being the first time I ever seen Carrie Underwood in a commercial, and thought it was amazing. I swear there's a commercial with her moving through the yellow curtains while "So Small" played, but I never found that on youtube. Also, "Just a Dream" became one of my favorite songs by her, up to now. I wish she'd make more songs with more emotion.

    Kelly Clarkson's video for LSS does remind me of this though:
