“How is this my life?” Underwood marveled. “How does a girl from Muskogee, Oklahoma, end up with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame? I’ll tell you how — faith. I am so blessed in my life to have … so many people who believed in me.”
Later, she gave a sweet shout-out to her husband, Mike Fisher, and their 3-year-old son, Isaiah.
