The country star attended the 2018 American Music Awards in L.A. Tuesday, when she arrived at the Microsoft Theater wearing a floor-length, bump-hugging black dress with gold detailing.
The singer, 35, is nominated for the favorite female country artist award and will take the stage to perform her new substance abuse-inspired track “Spinning Bottles.”
“I feel like when we wrote this song ‘Spinning Bottles’ we kind of each had people in our heads go through this,” she said of the track. “It’s hard to write, it’s hard to get it out, it’s hard to say it’s gonna go on the album … It’s difficult to sing it to the world, but its life; that’s a part of life. It’s hard to just put yourself out there like that.”
Underwood added: “Your’e just going into a writing session letting your feelings out and just hope people get it.”
The country star opened up about her expanding family on the AMAs red carpet pre-show — and son Isaiah’s reaction!
“I’m not sure if he quite realizes how his life is going to change, but right now he’s very sweet,” she said.
Underwood also opened up about hitting the road with another baby next year.
“I think its just gonna be the easiest, like, most organized tour we’ve ever had because I feel like everybody’s just gonna be there and be on time and be ready for it, and they all offered to babysit,” she said. “I’m not gonna sleep, but I did it once with one — how much harder could it be?”
The singer revealed the happy news in an August Instagram video in which she announced the upcoming tour for her latest album Cry Pretty, kicking off next summer.
“You might be wondering or asking, ‘Carrie, why is your tour starting in May?’ Well … yay!” she said, revealing balloons spelling out “BABY” above her head. “Mike and Isaiah and I are absolutely over the moon and excited to be adding another little fish to our pond.”
