American-Idol-winner-turned-country-music star Carrie Underwood gave praises to God for her Grammy win in the category of best country solo performance for "Blown Away."
"Country music has always been so good to me, and I thank the good Lord that I'm a part of such a wonderful, talented, amazing family. There are a lot of people to be thankful for," said Underwood. "The fans who have been coming out and watching us put on shows and supporting all of us, you guys are the reason we get to do what we do. My family and my amazing, perfect husband, Mike. This is really glory to God. Thank you so much," she added.
This will mark the country music superstar's sixth Grammy in her eight year music career. Her past Grammy victories include best new artist, best female country performance ("Jesus, Take the Wheel," "Before He Cheats" and "Last Name") and best country collaboration with vocals for "I Told You So" with Randy Travis.
On Monday evening, Underwood took to her Twitter account to express the joy of her career accomplishment. "I'm laying in bed, thinking about the night's events…how blessed I am to have such amazing family, friends and fans. I owe you everything!
From the beginning of Underwood's incredible career, she has always declared that her faith is the reason for her success. During her 2011 interview with FOX News, she explained that talent and luck were not the only contributors to her success, but that she credits her strong faith and Christian values.
"I grew up in church and have a wonderful family that always supported that," Underwood told FOX411's Pop Tarts column. "I grew up going to church camp and reading my Bible and having different faith books and movies in my life."
