Carrie Underwood Returns 9/24-25

| September 19, 2022

This week, Carrie Underwood returns for a second week as Lon’s co-host.  She recalled her time during the pandemic: “I think the boys knew life was different, but they enjoyed us being at home. It was the first time we were at home together that much.  They had a good time with it.”

Lon asked about her sons Isaiah & Jake: “They’re 7 and 3.  Everything with them is farts and wrestling. I wish I could have them turn it off at the table.  But it always ends up there.  They’re both in school, Isaiah learned how to read in the past few years.  He’s our sensitive guy.  He loves creepy shows on TV.  Jake’s a different animal than Isaiah.  Sometimes he chases him and beats up on his older brother.”

Lon asked if Carrie picked up any new hobbies during the pandemic: “I started a garden.  We have some property, so I started planting things.  I hadn’t gotten into it.  But then I was like, ‘I don’t know where the world is going. I better learn how to do things that contribute to our well being just in case things get worse.”  And by garden, she doesn’t mean flowers: “I have friends who do flowers, and I say ‘I don’t understand you. I can’t eat flowers.’ You plan it out and it’s satisfying to put a seed in the ground.  It’s a miracle.  You end up with food afterwards, your friends come over, and you can say, ‘I grew that!.'”

Her Denim & Rhinestones Tour kicks off next month.  Lon asked how she will handle her duet with Jason Aldean: “We shot some video, and we’ll have him on the screen.  It wouldn’t be the same if I just sang.  You can do that with some duets, but it wouldn’t be the same without him.  This is more of a traditional duet, as it’s supposed to be.”

Lon asked Carrie how often if she gets duet offers: “We get requests every week, and it has to make sense. Musically it has to make sense.  Timing is important.  Sometimes I don’t get why they would ask me.  I don’t make any sense with that person.  But it’s all good.  I feel like it’s a compliment.”

The video for Carrie’s current hit Ghost Story involves some acrobatics.  Lon asked who came up with that idea: “It was my idea. I’m the one who put myself in the air.  We had my show in Vegas, and we had aerialists.  I would watch them every night, and it looked like a challenge. So for this song, the reason I wanted this as the first single was because I could do a lot with it and I want to fly. I’m not a dare-devil, but I like to push myself.  Sometimes that involves a little danger.  Why not?  You only live once.”   

Carrie also has great stories this week about Jason Aldean, Gabby Barrett, Maddie & Tae, and Scotty McCreery.
