The pandemic has put a hold on many holiday traditions all over the world. Carrie Underwood is no exception as she said she is unsure if she will be able to see her family.
During the iHeartRadio Holiday Special, host Mario Lopez asks Underwood about her new Christmas album and her holiday traditions.
In September, Underwood released her seventh studio album; however, it was her first Christmas album. My Gift has 11 songs, including eight traditional holiday songs and three originals. Also featured on the album are the voices of John Legend for a duet with Underwood in the new song “Hallelujah,” as well as Underwood’s oldest son, Isaiah, who helped with “The Little Drummer Boy.”
“Hallelujah” might be a beautiful holiday song, however, some fans see controversy in John Legend, who has outwardly expressed his support for the Black Lives Matter movement as well as his dislike for President Trump. Read more about fans calling for a boycott here.
Carrie Underwood Holiday Traditions
As for traditions, the country music star just hopes to be able to see her family as part of her holiday plans but isn’t setting anything in stone just yet.
“I do not have them set,” said Underwood. “I feel like with everything else this year, we just have to remain very fluid and willing to change our plans. I hope to see family, but I’m really not sure if that’s going to happen, so we’ll just cross our fingers, and you know, at least I’ll be with my boys.”
The 37-year-old mother of two says that despite everything, you must look at the positives in life.
“So that’s our little family, and we’ll always be together, and whatever it is will be enough, you know. We have so much to be thankful for. We have air in our lungs, you know. We’re here together, and we’re all healthy, and so there’s still a lot to celebrate and be thankful for.”
Those are the positives vibes that we need in our lives right now, Carrie!
