Carrie Underwood: I'm Not a Fan of Love Songs

Carrie Underwood: I'm Not a Fan of Love Songs

Carrie Underwood graces the cover of Billboard‘s latest issue.

Here’s what the 29-year-old country star – whose new album, Blown Away, drops May 1 – had to share with the mag:

On her music style: “I never feel like I’ve pigeon-holed myself into a certain kind of song. I’ve taken all of my albums into as many different directions as possible, while still keeping them coherent. This is just a whole new level of that. I really do think there’s something for everyone.”

On balancing work and her personal life: “It seems like people have an album out every year and they are on a ‘perma-tour’ is what I call it. They tour permanently, all the time. I think I just made that word up. They live on tour and when they aren’t on tour, they are making an album. To me, if you have no life in between albums, you have nothing to write about … I have to live.”

On singing about love: “I don’t do love songs. If you look back at all of my albums, there might be one or two … love is the most complicated of human emotions. Everybody writes about it, and everybody sings about it – and in my opinion, most of the time not very well. If you’re going to put something out that is about the most amazing and complicated of God-given emotions, it better be dang good.”
