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.”

    I agree with what she said on love songs and putting out an album every year.

    ..yea, the best more consistent artist do put out an album very year, and tour- it’s called hard work. maybe that’s too difficult for ms underwood.

    Happiness and enjoyment of this short life are more important than “hard work”. As long as she can afford to take care of herself financially, I don’t see why Carrie shouldn’t enjoy her life to its fullest, whatever that means to her. Good for her for choosing the very best for herself!

    How smokin hot does she look on the cover of this??? She’s singing as great as ever… Looking forward to her live performace on Letterman on April 30th, the eve of her album launch! ‘Good Girl’ is a great track, its really a great calling card for the album! Nice to hear she is keeping a bit of balance in her life too and not permatouring! that word could catch on lol! Got to have a life too and have some substance there! Good Call Carrie!
