Carrie Underwood Covers 'Vegas' Magazine

Carrie Underwood keeps it cute on the April/May 2012 cover of Vegas Magazine, on stands now.

Here’s what the 29-year-old country crooner dished to the mag:

On her new album, Blown Away, out May 1st: “I’ve always been known for power ballads, and there’s not really that at all in the album. I honestly think it’s just because the album kind of makes itself. We’ll look at the end and think what we could use more of, but it is what it is. I don’t think, Oh, I need this power ballad. If you can’t find a song like that, you don’t force it. I have one song that’s so beautiful and so moving but it’s so quiet. It’s a story, and you really listen to it- I’m not trying to impress people with what I can do. I’ve done enough by now that I don’t have to sing to the moon with every single song.”

On her first brush with fame, American Idol: “American Idol isn’t even just a part of my past- it’s the catalyst that led me here. It’s always so much fun going back because so many of the people who worked on the show when I was there still work there. Plus, it’s fun to meet a new batch of contestants and see how bright and starry-eyed they all are.”

    Carrie is so beautiful!

  • Amy

    Lol god she is kinda full of herself.
    um who does she think she is at this point?
    dolly parton?
    simmer down underwood.

    I think she is very down to earth! Very humble..almost too humble. She always gives credit where credit is due…has never forgotten (like others) where they came from. I am going to buy her new album Blown Away because I love her voice. She looks beautiful on the cover. She should wear purple more often…looks great on her!

  • Isla

    She’s super boring is what she is.

  • Phoebe

    Icons and superstars are interesting women like dolly and Madonna, not snoozers like Taylor and Carrie.

  • anna

    @phoebe: comparing carrie to taylor is like comparing harry potter to twilight

    carrie rocks and we all know that!

  • lisa

    Why? I don’t understand being called boring because you are private and not an attentionwhore.

  • tima

    @anna: Right, so how do you explain why is Taylor getting Vogue covers while Carrie poses for Vegas Magazine?!?!

  • Yui

    she looks like Hannah Montana in this! :D

  • Jim

    (( There is only 100,000 magazines printed each week )) This is for x star’s and Haz Bins. Why is Carrie proud to be in a Haz Bin magazine that is in Las Vegas hotel rooms? Unless she may start doing a show in Las Vegas as no one will buy her concert tickets anymore :)

  • Lisa

    Last weeks cover = Donny and Marie Osmond OMG lol

  • KissThis

    @tima: Carrie has been on tons of magazine covers as of lately, so your point is moot!
