    Carrie Underwood set for Tahoe show

    Country music's golden girl, Carrie Underwood, will take center stage July 18 when she performs in the outdoor arena at Harveys Lake Tahoe.

    She is sure to lend her powerhouse vocals to hits like "Before He Cheats," "All-American Girl" and "Wasted."

    The singer is known for her knockout looks and can carry off a rhinestone-studded dress like nobody's business. But when she's not on stage, she tends to gain just as much notice for her occasional blunders as she does for her musical chops.

    'If something can be said to make an awkward moment even worse, I'm going to say it," she joked in an interview with the Associated Press last year.

    All in all, Underwood is nearly too likeable to be branded a diva. Chalk it up to her small-town upbringing in Oklahoma, complete with Baptist sermons, a mill-worker father, a schoolteacher mother and a family farm.

    She and her husband, Nashville Predators hockey player Michael Fisher, still gather each week with friends for Bible study.

    Despite her down-to-earth ethos, the singer tends to bring a larger-than-life approach to her shows.

    She captivates audiences via wardrobe changes, dramatic sets and engaging video clips, not to mention a voice that makes its home in the husky alto range before vaulting to mezzo-soprano heights.

    Underwood didn't write the title track on the 2012 album "Blown Away," a haunting song about a girl who – in the midst of an epic Oklahoma twister — abandons her passed-out, snake-mean father to meteorological fate.

    She is an able songwriter, though, having co-written 14 songs on the album, as well as a handful of tunes on her previous efforts.

    She's best known for her delivery. She embodies soul-deep wistfulness in "Just a Dream," the story of a woman whose military fiancé is killed overseas. She equally is convincing when she takes on the role of a scorned lover, wielding a baseball bat ("Before He Cheats") or gripping the wheel of one of "Two Black Cadillacs" pursuing a cheating man.

    "Singing is just a feeling set to music," Underwood has said.

    Things haven't cooled down for Underwood since her debut album "Some Hearts" became the best-selling album in the country in 2005. She is basking in some additional heat, though, since "Something Bad"— a girls-gone-wayward duet with Miranda Lambert released earlier this summer — tore its way to No. 1 on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart.

    It marked the 13th time a song by Underwood has held the top spot on the chart, putting to rest once and for all any notion that the singer is a manufactured star.

    She has gained legions of fans since winning the fourth season of "American Idol" in 2005, with her popularity spilling over to those who don't usually take to country.

    Underwood's four-album career has been buoyed by an irresistible combination: meaningful songs belted out in a really good voice.

    Former "Idol" judge Simon Cowell is notorious for his scathing assessments of performers he deems subpar. Even so, he was an unflagging cheerleader for Underwood, calling her win and subsequent stratospheric rise early on.

    His praise especially was effusive after Underwood delivered an octave-straddling rendition of Heart's torch song "Alone," rising to a bar set sky-high by Ann and Nancy Wilson.

    Underwood has referred to "American Idol" as a boot camp, saying it helped her grow a thicker skin when it comes to criticism while polishing her performance skills. The experience, along with the all-important exposure it granted her, has served her well.

    Underwood arguably made one critical misstep last December when she took on the part of Maria in a three-hour TV remake of "The Sound of Music," boldly assuming the role made iconic by the pitch-perfect Julie Andrews.

    The criticism was swift and harsh.

    "The strength of the songs and of her own vocal talents pulled her through when she was singing. It was the speaking that did her in," USA Today's Robert Bianco wrote. "The eyes went blank, the voice went flat and Maria turned to wood."

    As has become customary in the digital age, the 31-year-old responded to the razor-sharp scrutiny via social media: "Plain and simple: Mean people need Jesus."

    Her words may have been more tart than devout — after all, even superstars have feelings. But faith is the subject of one of Underwood's trademark hits, "Jesus, Take the Wheel," which is likely to inspire a chorus of stadium karaoke at the upcoming Harveys Lake Tahoe gig: "Jesus, take the wheel. Take it from my hands./'Cause I can't do this on my own."

    What Underwood has done on her own is garner a hugely loyal fan base. She is known for breaking records as much as for making them. "Some Hearts" is the best-selling country music debut by a solo female artist in history. With six Grammy awards under her belt, she is a firm believer in giving back.

    Last year, she contributed $1 million in proceeds from her "Blown Away" tour to the American Red Cross to help with disaster relief efforts in tornado-stricken Oklahoma.

    "Successful people have a social responsibility to make the world a better place and not just take from it," she said.

    And critics and fans agree, the music world certainly is a better-sounding place thanks to Underwood.

    "Here's the thing about a Carrie Underwood concert: A lot of the songs sound similar," Tom Szaroleta, a music writer from the Florida-Times Union said. "But least once in every one of them, she'll let loose with an improbably long note that runs through more octaves than you knew existed, leaving you with your jaw on the floor."
