Carrie Underwood Takes Time Out to Celebrate
Carrie marks her latest No. 1 and talks about her crazy schedule.
Carrie Underwood has a slew of projects on her plate, including an appearance on Sunday’s Primetime Emmy Awards telecast and her starring role in the TV special The Sound of Music. But she took time out of her crazy schedule to celebrate her latest No. 1 single, “See You Again,” with co-writers David Hodges and Hillary Lindsey at an industry party at the CMA building in Nashville, Thursday (Sept. 19). “See You Again” marks the fourth hit single from her 2012 album, Blown Away, after “Good Girl” and the title track, which both went No. 1, and “Two Black Cadillacs.”
Before the party, Carrie met with members of the Nashville media to talk about her various projects. Carrie currently performs the theme song for NBC’s Sunday Night Football telecasts, has cut a duet with Willie Nelson for his new album and is getting ready to host the Country Music Association Awards show with Brad Paisley, Nov. 6. “I feel like I’m pretty good at switching gears,” Carrie answered when asked how she keeps her schedule straight. “Each project is different. It keeps things fun and interesting.”
She’s definitely looking forward to her appearance on the Emmy Awards telecast, Sunday night (Sept. 22). Carrie will perform a medley of 1960s hits in a segment honoring that groundbreaking era in television. “It is all about TV defining an era. That was a time of big changes in our culture,” Carrie said. “It was really exciting to be asked.”
