Carrie Underwood Still Drives The Mustang She Got For Winning ‘American Idol’ Carrie Underwood has held on to one of her biggest prizes from ‘American Idol’. Being crowned the winner meant that Underwood was gifted a brand-new Ford Mustang convertible. That car is now 18 years old, and she not only still has it, but she will also occasionally drive it. “I do still have the car that I won when I won ‘American Idol’,” Underwood reveals during an interview with Today’s Country Radio With Kelleigh Bannen on Apple Music. “So I have my blue Mustang. And every once in a while something will happen where I’ll have my car getting serviced or whatever, and I’ll get to drive that car.” “And it always makes me want to drive it more, because it was such a pivotal point in my life. That was the car that I was driving around when I first moved to Tennessee, and I’m very, very glad I still have that car. Every time I get in it, I’m always like, ‘Why don’t I just drive this more often?’” she adds. “Just because, it makes me feel good.” What is one of the best gifts that you’ve ever received?
