With a album coming out this Friday, an upcoming tour and a baby on the way, it has certainly been a happy couple of months for Carrie Underwood. But the 35-year-old country superstar will have another reason to celebrate later this month, when she becomes the 2,646th celebrity to receive a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
The honor will mark 13 years that Underwood has been in the music industry, beginning back in 2005, when Underwood appeared on season 4 of American Idol. She then would go on to win that competition and gain massive crossover success. Her debut LP alone smashed records, becoming the best selling solo female debut in country music history.
American Idol judge, Simon Cowell will be there to give a speech at the ceremony, which will take place at 11:30 a.m. local time on September 20th in front of the famed Capitol Records building, the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce said.
Cowell, himself just recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in August where Idol winner Kelly Clarkson and Idol alum Adam Lambert gave speeches.
In addition to Cowell giving a speech, fellow friend, Brad Paisley will be giving a speech as well as Leron Gubler, president and CEO of the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce.
“Fans of Carrie Underwood will be thrilled when they see their favorite performer accept her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. People from all over the world have been asking when she will be honored, and we are proud to say, the time is now,” Anna Martinez, producer of the Walk of Fame ceremonies said in a statement. “We welcome everyone to Hollywood to cheer her on!”
