As part of her big win in 2005, Underwood was gifted a blue Ford Mustang and now, 18 years later, Carrie says she still owns it and drives it from time to time.

“I do still have the car that I won when I won American Idol,” Underwood said during an interview with Today's Country Radio With Kelleigh Bannen. “I have my blue Mustang, and every once in a while something will happen where I’ll have my car getting serviced or whatever, and I’ll get to drive that car.”

She continued, “It always makes me want to drive it more, because it was such a pivotal point in my life. That was the car that I was driving around when I first moved to Tennessee, and I’m very, very glad I still have that car. Every time I get in it, I’m always like, ‘Why don’t I just drive this more often?” She concluded “It makes me feel good.”

With cars clearly on her mind, Underwood recently released a new song, “Out of that Truck,” which is expected to be part of her next album. Hear it below.
