Mom Says Carrie Underwood “Was Never Really a People Person”

Carrie Underwood would say she’s reserved but she knows that has been misinterpreted as chilly or distant.

“We were never a huggy family,” she tells Marie Claire magazine, “or a ‘let’s talk it out’ family.

“Technically I have siblings, but they are quite a bit older than me—I was the accident—so I have the only-child syndrome going on. I’m a little more selfish, a little more independent, a little closed,” she adds.

“I do wish I were softer,” she says plainly. “I wish I were able to form relationships better.

“But hey, I mean,” Carrie adds, laughing, “I’m not a sociopath.”

And sometimes Carrie’s reserve really comes out when she’s with her hubby, NHL hockey player Mike Fisher.

“He is Mr. Nicest Guy on the Planet. I skew the other way,” Carrie concedes.

“I don’t want to listen to everybody’s problems all the time,” she says. “And I doubt anybody wants to listen to mine.”

Carrie’s mom, Carole, says her little girl often preferred to be by herself. “She was never really a people person,” Mom said. “She liked being outside with animals.”
