I wondered how people would take me being a country music singer. I thought about deviating from that and singing other things. But… it doesn’t really make sense for me to try to be something that I’m not.
I’m girlie in the sense that I like makeup, but I also love sports and man food.
We don’t have milk cows. People have so many stereotypes of people from where I come from – Oklahoma. We don’t ride around in covered wagons, either.
My inner rock chick has always been there. I grew up listening to a lot of rock music through my sisters, who were teenagers while I was young, so they had control of the radio.
I’m Southern. I like big hair and eyeliner.
I’m not the first person to sing about God, Jesus, faith [or] any of that, and I won’t be the last. And it won’t be the last for me, either. If you don’t like it, change the channel.
If I can convince others that there is a God and that they need to know Him, then I have done my job.
Singing is just a feeling set to music.
It wouldn’t be a Carrie Underwood album without a revenge song on it. People really like when I do that. I don’t mean to. I don’t hate men that much. But it turns out so well!
As far as talent goes, we had pretty much everything, and I think that’s why this year was so successful.
If you stick to what you know; you sell yourself short.
I’ve never been one for doing remixes. Then I’ve gotta decide which version am I gonna be tonight: country Carrie or pop Carrie? I’d rather just make country music that anybody can get into no matter what they listen to.
I’m kind of a nervous person in general. I’m socially awkward. I’m not tall and sensuous. I usually wear sweats everywhere I go. Oh, and I burp a lot.
I’m fighting a losing battle here: I’m trying to lose some weight. I love chocolate; that’s one of my biggest downfalls. I haven’t gotten a whole lot of chocolate, thank goodness, because I’d probably be about 300 pounds.
I respect country music because I feel like it’s more about the talent and the songwriting and I put on a big show and we have a lot of stuff, but I feel confident in myself enough as an artist and a singer that I can have all of those fun toys and know that we don’t need all the bells and whistles either.
I feel like when I’m on stage, when I’m writing songs, singing songs, I’m in the studio, I’m shooting videos, I kind of get to become this character, and I can make that whatever I want to make that.
We created Calia to make it easier for me and all other women to work in working out.
The only other time I’ve been away from home was when I went to college. And that was just an hour away, so I could always go home if I needed to.
You can do anything you put your mind to. I believe in all of you. Never doubt yourself, even if everyone around you is doubting you. Stand tall. Prove them all wrong.Each and every one of you have something amazingly special about you and don’t let anyone tell you any different. Thank you for being my fans.. and my friends. Thank you for giving me a reason to sing. Thank you for being you.
Above all, God wanted us to love others. We have to love each other and get on with each other, she added. It’s not up to me to judge anybody.
I love being able to perform in front of people. I like potentially making a difference in somebody’s day or somebody’s life.
But my husband came from a small town and hardworking parents like I did, and I don’t think we’ve lost that mind-set. We don’t have a bowling alley in our basement. We don’t have houses on the beach and one in New York and one in L.A.
But as far as Twitter, I’ll be in a restaurant and I’ll get home and somebody tweeted and they talked about what I ordered and what I was wearing. In some cases, that could be dangerous, because you don’t want everybody to know where you are every second of every day.
Nobody’s going to tell me that my dog doesn’t love me. That’s crazy talk.
I love scary movies. I like blood and gore, and I love Halloween movies.
As a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love, and want to marry, I can’t imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love.
Every day is a new day, and you’ll never be able to find happiness if you don’t move on.
I’ve learned this, that haters wanna hate. You could sing a song perfectly, you could write the songs perfectly, and some people are absolutely going to hate you.
Successful people have a social responsibility to make the world a better place and not just take from it.
