Carrie Underwood has had a busy year. She recently wrapped up her fifth tour and delivered a knockout performance of her new duet with Keith Urban, “The Fighter,” at the Grammys. Now the 33-year-old mom says she’s ready for a little break.
“We just wrapped up the Storyteller Tour and I feel like my life right now, creatively, is kind of a blank space,” Underwood told People at the Grammy Awards on Sunday.
“I’m really excited about that, because you don’t know where you’re going to go,” she went on to say. “I’m nervous because I want whatever I do next to be amazing, so I’m kind of taking a little break right now and being a mom and being a wife and going to see some hockey games to see my husband play. I’m kind of waiting for lightning to strike and go: ‘Okay, it’s time to get creative and work on new music!’”
Underwood has been married to Nashville Predators hockey player Mike Fisher since 2010. The couple shares a two-year-old son named Isaiah.
The Grammy-winner says she gets really into watching her husband on the ice. “I’m like: ‘Yeah! Get ’em!’ I’m screaming at the TV, or if I’m there I’m screaming and yelling at the refs. It’s good. I’m in it!”
