Carrie Underwood Gives Phone Number to 'American Idol' Contestants
What a sweetheart
I've always liked Carrie Underwood. And now I think I just fell in love with her a little more. She's revealing the fact that after every season of American Idol, she gives her phone number out to the final contestants. But they never call! Maybe Lauren Alaina will dial Carrie's digits this year.

Imagine having country singer Carrie Underwood's phone number in your cell phone, ready to be dialed at any time? Carrie says she likes to give it out in order to be there for American Idol finalists after the big show ends. In talking about Scotty McCreery and Lauren Alaina, Carrie tells E! News, "Both of them are going to have a lot ahead of them and there's really nothing I can tell them that will make any of it any easier... Maybe I can give them my number, both of them."
Really? Want to give us your phone number, too, Carrie? And while she sounds like she's just thinking aloud, Carrie is actually very serious. She claims, "I've done this every year, by the way, and no one ever calls me...".
I guess the contestants are all a little shy when it comes to calling Carrie out of nowhere. After all, she is one of the Idols who made it the biggest; she's a huge superstar these days. But there is one American Idol winner who called her. Carrie says, "I think David Cook is the only one I've managed to become friends with and we swap stories and talk about stuff, but nobody ever calls me. So maybe they will."

What do you think? I have a feeling she and Lauren Alaina will become good friends with Carrie acting as a fabulous mentor to Lauren. Perhaps Scotty McCreery will get in on the fun too. The three have their genre of music in common and I'm sure they'd have a lot to talk about.
If Carrie Underwood gave you her number, would you call her?
