Sometimes just a simple meet and greet with one of our most beloved artists is all we ask for.

That rings true for 14-year-old Clarence, New York native Maddie Law.

Ever since she heard Carrie Underwood’s smoking pipes on FOX’s now defunct “American Idol,” it’s been her dream to come face-to-face with the country star.

Although she had to wait at least a decade to see Carrie in person, she finally met her on May 24, 2016, at the First Niagara Center in Buffalo, New York.

That reality was no easy task for Maddie though. Sadly, she suffers from Cerebral Palsy — a condition that makes it impossible for her to get anywhere on her own. But with the help from WKBW reporter Matt Bové, who was determined to help make her wish come true, she got to experience the surprise of a lifetime!

Matt posted a video to Twitter on March 25 as a way to spread the word about Maddie’s desire to meet Carrie.

As you can see in the clip, Maddie is, in fact, a die-hard Carrie fan!

“She’s a great singer… I might cry happy tears — that’s my dream,” says Maddie about the thought of meeting her inspiration.

While cameras were not allowed backstage when Maddie got to meet Carrie, we can only imagine how important that moment must’ve been for her.
