She’s sold more than 64 million records, toured around the World, won Grammys, CMA, ACM, CMT and Billboard awards. But she is also a wife, a mom and a clothing designer.
You know I’m talking about Carrie Underwood, right?
I met Carrie in 2005 right after she won American Idol. She has been one of the most successful artists in the country genre… and isn’t slowing down. But I can tell you, she is still the same girl from Oklahoma that walked onto the CMT red carpet 15 years ago.
Carrie wrapped up her Cry Pretty Tour last year and was working on plans for 2020… but of course there aren’t any concerts happening.
So what does a mega country star do during quarantine? Work on your other “jobs” of course.
If you know Carrie you know how passionate she is about fitness. Her fitness apparel line called “Calia by Carrie” is turning 5! The new line is out now. Carrie is the lead designer and says she has learned so much about workout gear over the past 5 years.
So how has her style changed? Well, she admits that as a mom of two, she needs more pockets!
“I’m always like, yeah but where am I gonna put my phone?” Carrie said when she was talking about designing the new collection of Calia by Carrie.
Surprisingly, Carrie doesn’t use Pinterest! I truly thought this would be a go-to for someone designing clothes. She admits she has “pinterested” before but doesn’t use it now.
I tried to convince her she needs it 😊
Calia has three pop-up stores this year (Austin, Santa Monica, and Nashville) and the new line is also carried in all of the Dick’s Sporting Goods stores nationwide. It is really cute and I highly recommend checking it out.
Staying at home has been tough on a lot of artists, but Carrie told me she is really into gardening. She has had gardens before but admits with the situation of being off the road, this year she really got the chance to get her hands dirty.
She also says it is really satisfying to go to the garden and pick dinner. Isaiah seems to like it too!
Carrie just released her Christmas album called “My Gift”. It is everything we need right now. Isaiah sings on “Little Drummer Boy”. It’s precious.
Hopefully, you are listening to it right now because I think we can all start celebrating early this year.
