CARRIE UNDERWOOD

"One day, when I was about 14 years old, I’d had a particularly rough day at school because I had been teased by a boy in one of my classes. He made fun of my makeup. (Hey, I was just 14 … I was still learning how to do it.) At dinner that night, for no reason at all, my dad told me that I looked really pretty. He had no clue about what happened that day, nor is he exactly the kind of guy to give out compliments like that freely. But those words turned a bad day into a really good one."
