As the year comes to a close, I always like to reflect on the year in music. This is a best of the best list, this is the 'cream that rose to the top'. Will names like Strait or Chesney make it on this list? I'm not wasting anymore time, let's count down the top 10 songs of 2012. Carrie Underwood knows what it's like to live at the top of the charts, she's also managed to get nominated for just about every award there is. Carrie enters the countdown at the #6 spot in our Top 10 of 2012.

Carrie Underwood's "Blown Away" was released as the second single from her fourth studio album titled 'Blown Away.' Carrie first performed the song on the show American Idol and then on the 2012 edition of the Country Music Association Awards. The song has been nominated for a 2013 Grammy Award for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song of the Year.

The Oklahoma native is a fan of all types of music, yet she’s firmly planted in the country music genre. She's sold over 15 million albums worldwide, had 16 #1 songs, won five Grammy's, and lots of other awards too numerous to mention. All this was achieved within four albums in less than eight years.

Carrie Underwood does not rest, she continues to hone her craft with a "creative spirit, good-natured competitive streak and abundance of God-given talent, Carrie unleashes her most ambitious project yet with the album and song 'Blown Away.'
