Carrie Underwood on Being a Woman in Country Music: I'm One of the Lucky Ones

Carrie Underwood wears a fun and flirty dress on the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine’s December 2015 issue, on newsstands November 10.

Here’s what the 32-year-old country star had to share with the mag:

On having two sides: “When I am onstage, I am not Carrie: I am Carrie Underwood. Obviously, I would never run off to Vegas and get drunk and marry a guy or trash some guy’s car. But everybody has had somebody who’s cheated on them or some jerk they dated.”

On her marriage: “Everyone is getting divorced. They’re dropping like flies! But we are good. It helped that we were both established before we were married. Neither one of us could be like, ‘I didn’t know it would be like this!’”

On women in the country music genre: “When I go to vote for the Country Music Awards, I have to write in names—I can think of, like, three who are really active. Women have to work harder to get half the recognition. I am one of the lucky ones.”
