Carrie Underwood has sold her first Nashville home. It's the one she bought right after winning American Idol in 2005. The 2,956-square-foot home in Franklin, TN went for $372,500, $14,000 less than she paid for it. The house is pretty great -- for a non-famous person -- hardwood floors, spacious kitchen, garage, fireplace ... all that normal house stuff. Carrie's movin on up. She and husband Mike Fisher spent $3.2 million on 400 acres of land in nearby Nashville to build their dream home.
