These days Carrie Underwood is one of the biggest stars on the planet, but it was only just a decade ago that she was just a new singer fresh off a little singing competition show known as “American Idol.”
As Carrie and her team were deciding which songs she would record for her debut album, one main song in that discussion was “Don’t Forget To Remember Me.”
You would think Carrie would have jumped at the opportunity to record it since it seems to be mimic Carrie’s own personal life, but in reality, it took fate stepping in to make sure that it happened.
“The first time that I heard it, I cried because I was feeling homesick,” Carrie told SingerUniverse.com. “I got the lyrics and managed to lose them in a stack of papers I was sending home. My mother got the package and read through the lyrics. She called me and said that the song made her cry. She said that it was ‘our song.’ In that moment, I knew that no matter how hard it would be to get through, I had to record it.”
The song was the fourth single released from Carrie’s debut album, “Some Hearts.” The video for “Don’t Forget To Remember Me” made its debut on March 15, 2006.
