Less than a decade later, she made her debut at the senior international elite level, winning back-to-back American Cup titles in 2003 and 2004, as well as the title of 2004 US Co-National Champion. Carly was also a part of the 2003 World Championships team where she won a silver medal in the all-around and helped lead the US to their first ever World Championship team gold medal.

A year later, Carly achieved her ultimate goal in gymnastics by earning a trip to the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens, Greece. Carly came home from Athens with three Olympic medals. The US women won silver in the team competition – the first medal for the US women in eight years, as well as the second highest finish for Americans in a fully attended Olympic Games. Carly also earned a silver medal on her specialty, the beam. Later that year, she received the title of 2004 Olympic All-Around Champion. Carly is the USA’s first Olympic all-around champion in twenty years, as well as the first American woman to win an Olympic all around title in a fully attended Olympic Games.

Carly presented an award at the 2004 MTV Video Music Awards; was recognized by Glamour Magazine at the 2004 "Women Of The Year” Award; and was honored as the March of Dimes’ “Sportswoman of the Year.”

In 2005, Carly was selected as one of Teen People’s "20 Teens Who Will Change the World;” walked the runway at New York Fashion Week to promote “The Heart Truth Red Dress Collection” to prevent heart disease; was nominated for the Sullivan Award honoring the best amateur athlete; and was nominated for a 2 Carly Patterson ESPY Award in the “Best Olympic Performance” category.

Carly published her autobiography “Be Strong” and made an appearance in the movie “Stick It.”

Carly began pursuing a music career after the 2004 Olympics and was signed by Music Mind Records in 2007. Carly released her first single, "Temporary Life" in March 2008 and her second single, "Time to Wake Up", in 2009. Carly's CD, "Back To The Beginning", was released August 2009. Her song, "Here I Am", was used for advertisement for the 2010 season of the TV show "Make It or Break It."

Carly has continued to work with USA Gymnastics at events, gymnastics camps and competitions. She also takes pride in coaching and appearances at many college events.She was chosen for the USA Gymnastics Hall of Fame in 2009.

Carly has been involved in many charitable causes such as Special Olympics, Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, The Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation and Children’s Miracle Network as well as numerous other local Dallas-based charitable causes.

Carly graduated from Texas Woman's University in 2014, and in April 2017 had her first son with husband Mark Caldwell. In 2019 Carly gave birth to their second child.
