Maybe next time they’ll think before they sing. Carrie Underwood she opened up about her experience of going to live concerts – and how disappointed she is when the singer doesn’t sound like their album.
“I love to sing and I’ve always been proud of the work I put into my vocals. I want to sound good,” Underwood, 39, said The rolling stone in an interview published on Tuesday, October 18. “Growing up and going to concerts or seeing my favorite artists on TV if they didn’t sound like they were supposed to sound, it was always so draining.”
Country singer, who took home the trophy as the runner-up American Idol In 2005, she explained that she would “lose respect” for singers who couldn’t deliver a strong live performance.
“When I’d go to a concert and hear them drop the keys, I’d be like, ‘You can’t hit the notes! Why did you record them if you don’t know how to sing them?”, she said. “Those things are important to me.”
While the eight-time Grammy winner has high standards when it comes to fellow musicians, one singer who has served as an inspiration to Underwood throughout her career is Guns N’ Roses. Axl Rose.
“The way I learned to sing was I would pick really hard vocals to try to emulate, and his voice always fascinated me,” Underwood said of the rock legend, 60. “I thought, ‘How does he do things that he does that?”
The “Before He Cheats” singer said The rolling stone on Tuesday that she’s “covered Guns N’ Roses her whole life” and had been trying to share the stage with the band for years — a wish she was granted in April at the 2022 Stagecoach Festival, where Rose joined Underwood on stage for a special performance of his song “Sweet Child O’ Mine”.
This isn’t the first time Underwood has made headlines for her strong opinions. Last month, the comedian Billy Eichner revealed that the “Good Girl” artist blocked him on Twitter after he joked about her anti-mask stance during the coronavirus pandemic.
“There was this thing where, like, during the height of COVID, she posted, she retweeted a speech by some Republican who said kids shouldn’t be wearing masks in schools,” the Bros star, 44, said during the September episode of Watch what’s happening live with Andy Cohen. “[She] kind of made her political views known for the first time and I guess I made some jokes about it that went viral on Twitter and I guess she didn’t like it.”
Underwood shares sons Isiah, 7, and Jacob, 3, with his wife. Mike Fisher. The former hockey player, 42, faced his own backlash in November 2021 after endorsing Aaron Rodgers for refusing to be vaccinated in the middle of the corona virus pandemic.
“I agree with @aaronrodgers12. I believe in the freedom to choose what we put in our bodies and freedom of conscience,” Fisher wrote on Instagram. “It’s time to fight for our medical freedom and I feel for those who have been fired for choosing medical freedom. People losing their jobs because of medical choice is un-American and unacceptable. We must stand up now before it’s too late!! #medicalfreedom #standwithaaronrodgers.”
Although Underwood has not publicly expressed her opinion on the matter, she “liked” Fisher’s post in that time. She was also seen looking less than thrilled at the 2021 CMAs the same month host Luke Bryan joked about “health protocols” and “immunizations.”
