Carrie Underwood Explains Why Performing While Pregnant Is Different
Last night, country singer Carrie Underwood wowed on the red carpet in a sequined blue Tadashi Shoji dress at the CMT Artists of the Year 2018 celebration.
Underwood even cradled her baby bump for photos! “Extra's” Alecia Davis caught up with Carrie, who revealed, “I'm good. I'm, like, tugging my dress, like, pulling it up here... pulling it down there... yeah.”
Pregnancy is not stopping Carrie from hitting the stage to perform. She explained, “It's different. It's just your... you forget, your brain, 'cause I feel like it happened so fast — it really does — and your brain still thinks you have your old body, and then it's been invaded, taken over, and it's just different. It's different singing. It's different walking around.”
As for her little boy Isaiah, she says he is ready to become a big brother, but his outlook may need a little tweak from herself and husband Mike Fisher. She said, “He seems excited. He told me recently, though, that he would be mine and the new baby would be Daddy's, so I feel like we're gonna have to kind of work on that, but he's a super helpful kid and I think he'll be good.”
Of their Halloween plans, Carrie dished, “Isaiah wants to be a ghost, so Mike's gonna be a Ghostbuster and I'm gonna be the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man. I was like, 'What can I put [on] that will go with the theme?' so I feel like that makes sense.”
Carrie was getting ready to share the stage with Kelsea Ballerini, Miranda Lambert, Maren Morris, Little Big Town's Karen Fairchild and Kimberly Schlapman, Lady Antebellum's Hillary Scott and living legend Loretta Lynn, all being named CMT's Artists of the Year. She raved, “I do feel honored, not just that they're, that I'm one of the ones being honored, but just to get to share the stage with so much talent, you know? Not just woman talent, but talent in general.”
