Happy 30th birthday Carrie Underwood!

The country starlet has come a long way since growing up on her family's farm in Oklahoma.

The Checotah native has taken over Hollywood since winning "American Idol" in 2005 -- today, she's become one of the most popular female country performers thanks to singles like "Before He Cheats" and "Blown Away."

Not only has Carrie taken over the music industry, she's become somewhat of a fashion icon. Since her rise to stardom on season 4 of  "Idol," Underwood's lost a considerable amount of weight and evolved her style (definitely) for the better.
