Carrie Underwood Admitted She Used to ‘Lose Respect’ For Live Performers 

During an interview with Rolling Stone last fall, Carrie Underwood spoke about how live performances would make her lose respect for some artists over the years. 

“I love to sing, and I’ve always taken pride in the work I’ve put in on my vocals,” Underwood explained. “I do want to sound good. Growing up and going to concerts or seeing my favorite artists on TV, if they didn’t sound like they were supposed to sound, it was always so deflating.”

That was when Carrie Underwood said she lost respect for those who sang differently on stage than on their records. “When I’d go to a concert and hear them drop keys, I was like, ‘You can’t hit the notes! Why’d you record them if you can’t sing them?’ That stuff is important to me.”

Also during her interview with Rolling Stone, Underwood said that she grew up idolizing Axl Rose’s vocal talents. “The way I learned to sing was I would pick really hard vocalists to try to emulate, and his voice always mesmerized me,” she shared. 

Carrie Underwood went on to add that she has been covering Guns N’ Roses her whole life. Last spring, Underwood and Axl Roses performed together Sweet Child O’ Mine and Paradise City together. “They were so different,” she said about Axl Rose and others like him during an interview with E! News in 2015. “I look at people like him and Freddie Mercury, those people who were doing all these crazy runs.”
