She may be a 34-year-old wife and mom, but that doesn’t mean that Carrie Underwood doesn’t relate to tween and teen fans. In fact, those younger fans exhibited their incredibly good taste when they voted Carrie the Teen Choice Country Artist of 2017 at the Teen Choice Awards on August 13.

Carrie wasn’t the only country star to take home a trophy. Sam Hunt was also a winner in the Choice Country Song category for “Body Like a Back Road.”
Neither Carrie nor Sam was on hand to accept their awards, but that doesn’t mean they’re any less grateful.
Carrie shared her thanks on her Twitter page, recognizing how amazing her fans—the “Care Bears”—really are.
Of course, Carrie is a huge influence on any young person who wants to pursue a career in music. She has one of the finest voices in any format, not just country. And she was a teen herself, just 19, when she got her big break on “American Idol.” But her impact on teens and tweens far exceeds being able to sing beautifully.

The Teen Choice Awards annually recognizes achievement in the fields of music, movies, television, sports and fashion, and, as the name implies, are voted on by teenagers. Congratulations to both Carrie and Sam on this noteworthy honor.
