Carrie Underwood Says She’s ‘Taking a Little Break’ from the Road
It’s been a whirlwind several years for Carrie Underwood, but now, the country superstar is ready to kick back and enjoy some well-deserved time off. The singer, who stunned the GRAMMY Awards crowd with her performance of “The Fighter” with Keith Urban, dished on her upcoming plans (or lack thereof) now that she’s officially done with touring and her Storyteller album cycle.
“We just wrapped up the Storyteller Tour and I feel like my life right now, creatively, is kind of a blank space,” Underwood told PEOPLE on the red carpet at the 59th Annual GRAMMY Awards. “I’m really excited about that, because you don’t know where you’re going to go. I’m nervous because I want whatever I do next to be amazing, so I’m kind of taking a little break right now and being a mom and being a wife and going to see some hockey games to see my husband play. I’m kind of waiting for lightning to strike and go: ‘Okay, it’s time to get creative and work on new music! ”
Though the Oklahoma native plans on taking it easy, she’ll likely be working just as hard while rooting her husband of nearly seven years on as he skates as captain for the Nashville Predators.
“I’m like: ‘Yeah! Get ’em!’ ” Underwood said of supporting her hubby. “I’m screaming at the TV, or if I’m there I’m screaming and yelling at the refs. It’s good. I’m in it!”
And as for whether or not the couple’s 23-month-old son Isaiah will follow in mom or dads footsteps, Underwood teased that he’s more likely going to lace up some skates.
“I’m pretty sure he’s going to play some hockey at some point in his life,” she shared. “He’s about to turn 2 and we’ll see what happens after that! You never know. It’s up to the good lord.”
