Corlew was crowned Ms. Senior America today at the National pageant at
Resorts Casino Hotel's Superstar Theater in Atlantic City, NJ.  The competition
featured 34 women age 60 and older from around the country.  Corlew won the
title of Ms. Senior Tennessee April 27th.  While representing Wilson County at
the Tennessee State convention, Corlew encouraged ladies that have reached the
"Age of Elegance" to consider participating in the pageant.
 
"I am
thrilled, honored and so excited about wearing this crown for the next year,"
said Corlew.  "These women were over the top – there were professional dancers,
opera singers from Broadway… I sang a bluesy Etta James song and we had a 93
year old that rocked the competition.  I'm blown away.  From this point it's
spirit, mind and then body – it's gotta come from within.  I've got a 20 pound
dress on and a crown and I'm proud to represent all the senior women of
America!"

Carrie Underwood is Getting the Dixie Chicks Treatment: Shut Up and Sing

However, as fans know, animal rights is a cause near and dear to  her heart. Over the years, Carrie has showed her undying support for such causes as the Humane Society of the United States. In 2009, her gorgeous cover of Motley Crue’s “Home Sweet Home” was  featured on American Idol as that year’s exit song, and the single’s proceeds were donated to specific organization causes.
