10. 'Last Name'
Seriously, a Pinto? Yep, that should have tipped you off, Carrie! At least she's owning up to her transgressions. What happens in Vegas ... is pretty darn hilarious! Watch 'Last Name' Video
9. 'I Know You Won't'
This goosebump-raising ballad wasn't a single, but it's an incredible, memorable performance. Carrie's powerful pipes convey emotional turmoil and heart-touching sadness. Watch 'I Know You Won't' Performance
Anyone who's tried (metaphorically) pouring raindrops back into a cloud knows how good if feels to finally gain some clarity. And Carrie knew from track one, album one, how to get her messages across. Watch 'Wasted' Video
7. 'So Small'
The voice soars higher than the mountains, but the message cuts right through to the heart. Comforting words that wrap around you like a warm blanket. Watch 'So Small' Video
6. 'I Told You So' (With Randy Travis)
Carrie's solo remake was impressive enough, but this Grammy-winning duet with the man who wrote and originally sang it made four words that usually come off nasty sound sweeter than ever. Watch 'I Told You So' Video
5. 'Cowboy Casanova'
Rather than plotting revenge, Carrie's on a mission to keep other unsuspecting cowgirls from experiencing "candy-coated misery." He may not realize it, but the leather seats of his four-wheel drive appreciate it. Watch 'Cowboy Casanova' Video
4. 'Mama's Song'
The father-daughter dance is a wedding tradition, and this lovely ballad from grateful daughter to concerned mother could become traditional, too. There's a certain hockey player who probably likes the song's vote of confidence as well. Listen to 'Mama's Song'
3. 'Temporary Home'
In a series of heartbreaking but ultimately redemptive vignettes, Carrie offers a lifetime of valuable lessons in a little over four minutes. Quite simply one of her most soul-stirring performances. Watch 'Temporary Home' Video
2. 'Jesus, Take the Wheel'
Inspiring and inspired, this divine performance turned a reality-show winner into a bona fide superstar. It also delivered a potent message about second chances. Watch 'Jesus, Take the Wheel' Video
1. 'Before He Cheats'
Courtroom TV shows were made for loose cannons like the bat-wielding character Carrie portrays here. Sounding fearless and no doubt looking flawless, we love her take-no-prisoners attitude. We just don't want to meet up with her in a dark alley! Watch 'Before He Cheats' Video
