Trying her hand at acting
Carrie isn’t a one-trick pony who can wow audiences with her amazing vocals. She tried her hand at acting and had a moderately successful career. Her debut performance was on CBS’ How I Met Your Mother, where she played Tiffany, a medical sales rep who kept Ted hooked, just in case.
The episode received average ratings, despite being the second highest-rated episode of the show’s fifth season. However, critics weren’t sold on the idea of Carrie’s acting skills, but they also blamed the episode’s scriptwriters for coming up with less-than-funny material. This didn’t deter the country music-star-turned-actress. A year later, she’d try her hand at acting in films.
