Carrie Preps For Baby, Tour

Carrie Underwood surprised everyone last week with two big announcements: The first was that she was going to tour in 2019, and the second was that she & her husband were expecting a baby. She discussed both subjects with Country Countdown USA’s Lon Helton:

Carrie told Lon that she’s very excited about hitting the road: “The tour is very exciting, starting May, it’s going to be a lot of fun. It’s ‘360’ because we’re doing it in the round again, it was so great to have the last tour like that. I remember talking to my team, ‘I don’t know how I can go back to not having that connection with the audience.’ It was just so great the last time, I felt like I was able to get more energy from the audience being in the middle of the arena. So we’re excited.”

Carrie is also very excited about her tour partners: “Maddie & Tae and Runaway June are just amazingly talented artists, and when their names came up, it was just like wow, an all-female line-up. There just seemed to be something so fun about it. Beyond that I am in admiration of women in country music. They’re gorgeous and they work so hard, I thought this is gonna make for a really incredible tour.”

But before she hits the road, she has one other thing to do: “Yeah we’re excited to be adding for our family, it’s gonna be really great.”

Lon then asked how the baby will affect her co-hosting the CMA Awards in mid-November: “Oh I’m sure this will affect the CMA co-hosting in an abundance of ways. I’m sure the wardrobe changes might be a little different. I’m sure Brad will have ways to make fun of me. You never know, we’ll work it in. I’m sure I’ll be the butt or the belly of a few jokes.”

If all that wasn’t enough, Carrie will release her new album Cry Pretty on September 14th.  That’s a lot to handle: “I feel like I’m a pretty good juggler.  I’m a working mom, so like all working moms out there, you figure out how to make it all work.  You become a master juggler, you learn how to multi-task.  You take everything one step at a time, one day at a time, one minute at a time, and you just figure it out, because that’s what we do!”
