    Guess I’m missing where she looks any bigger??? At one point she did look a little too skinny but she’s been over that stage for awhile now. I love Carrie… such a great person.

    *BRAVO* to any entertainer that gives of their time to salute our BRAVE & AMAZING TROOPS. It’s not about what political party you belong to or what government policies you endorse ~ when it comes to the men/women who serve our country…WE SHOULD ALL BE SUPPORTING THEM and to see these “famous” people take time to do so…is refreshing and as a family member of military vets (both past/present) it’s appreciated by our troops and their families.

    –OOPS–sorry, computer problems [SORRY ABOUT THE DOUBLE POST!]

  • sarah

    @Ilia: Ummm, exactly why is she racist?? Cause shes white? I detect some underlying jealousy. Get over it. She is awesome, beautiful and talented

  • gaby

    way to go carrie! looks amazing too!

  • someone


    UMMMM what are you talking about? What has she ever done that has made you think she’s a racist??

    Furthermore, she never talks about her political affiliations but it’s believed that she’s a Democrat. So get your facts straight.



    Carrie is an incredibly talented artist and person. She is a Democrat anyway, you ignorant prick. Even if she was a Republican, so what? You are a hypocrite for bashing those who have different beliefs then you do,…as I thought the Democrats were all about tolerance? LMAO Perhaps you should practice what you preach, jerk!

    Get the facts straight before you bash, people!

    Go Carrie! and God bless our troops!

  • Michael


    how can you be kidding when you call Carrie beautiful? She is beautiful.. that is a fact. I like kelly clarkson too, but sometimes, her fans can be a little too militant in their hate of Carrie for no apparent reason. What does “Team Clarkson” have to do with Carrie performing at the military camp? Color me confused.

  • fat-clarkson

    i think she is beautifull and she looks the same to me as far as weight shes very very attractive

  • hayyyy we’re gonna have a g…

    She is so pretty(:

  • kelly

    Some people are so ugly inside that they cannot recognize pure beauty when they see it. I pity them.

  • Toni

    So good to hear something nice about a celeb. She looks gorgeous.

  • estelle

    Carrie is beautiful… There is something about her that makes her stand out. I believe it is because she is a really good person. Love the girl!

  • dorie

    I have real problems understanding the fan war mentality that exists between some Kelly Clarkson and Carrie Underwood fans. I think they are both fabulous singers, decent people and very beautiful in their own individual ways. It’s true that a few of Kelly’s fans can get a little embarrasing at times, but some of the Carrie fans can come across like complete wack jobs too.

  • BrightinLA

    I just don’t understand why Carrie reportedly makes snide remarks about Jessica Simpson’s weight (or anything else Simpson does) when in fact they basically look the same…..?

  • teamclarkson

    She has got teeth like an alien c’mon

  • Janie

    First of all, Carrie never said a bad word about Jessica’s weight (and any word to the contrary would be from a rag trying to cause trouble) and in fact, she has stated she thinks it is ridiculous for people to pick on celebrity women about their weight. Carrie would never comment on any women’s weight. She posts on the official fan all the time to squash all those type of rumors. Plus, Carrie really likes Kelly and vice versa and most all Carrie fans really like Kelly also so this so called battle is all in the minds of haters. Also, if anyone thinks that is fat when you look at Carrie, you are completely off your rocker. Anyone would love to be that “fat.” That girl does not have an ounce of at on those arms or legs since that is all you can see anyway and she is looking perfect. No one would say that about all the male singers out there. And about the teeth, she wore braces and has picture perfect teeth so that is just made up from a hater also. And for the person that completely made up that she is on a bachelor site, that is bull. She has a serious boyfriend and has for over 10 months now and in fact he was at this event over the weekend so all this bachelor stuff is bull.

  • someone

    Yeah seriously, Carrie NEVER said anything about Jessica Simpson’s weight. In fact she’s hardly ever said ANYTHING about Jessica, period. And it’s certainly never been anything negative.

  • Sarah

    What a gorgeous, perfect girl. I have not really followed her much but she is so talented and so gorgeous. She looks stunning as usual. For the mean person that mentioned weight, you are kidding right? That girl is completly fit. I always love how she has that great muscle tone. Beautiful girl. Good for her in doing this for the military when she would not have had to.

  • miss Canada

    Carrie’s boyfriend, Mike Fisher, of the Ottawa Senators NHL was there to watch her. He is so freakin hot!!!!

    Carrie looks like a beauty queen and she never says a negative word about anyone. In fact, Taylor said that was one of the qualities she admired about Carrie in an interview. All that stuff with Jessica was made up by the media.

    Anyone can post on a site like that. I could prove that’s not her.
    Carrie has a boyfriend already.

  • David G. Mills

    These are my pictures of Carrie, and I’m always thrilled when my pics end up on JustJared.

    About Carrie looking FAT… no way. The dress she wore had many layers underneath, which gave it a more fuller look.

    For anyone to say Carrie is a Democrat or Republican….you’re just guessing. Truthfully, on August 14, 2009, at Fort Campbell, KY..”IT DID NOT MATTER.

    I was in the backstage area (obviously) and right in front of the stage…
    as she performed for over 75,000 fans. This FREE concert was part of the “Week of Eagles” welcome home celebration. Fort Campbell is the home to the 101st Airborne Division (aka “Screaming Eagles”)

    Other artists that performed on August 14:

    Hank Williams Jr. To those that don’t know who he is… “he sings the song for MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL”.

    Jake Owen & John Rich also met with , and performed.
