If there’s anything people need more of in 2021, it’s positivity after a long and grueling 2020. For country artist Carrie Underwood, 2020 was the perfect year to release her two bucket list projects. The two projects are, in nature, designed to uplift and inspire.

‘My Savior’ in 2021

She had announced this year that she wanted to release a gospel album titled, “My Savior.” The album would be the companion of her recently released Christmas album, “My Gift.”

Her plan is to drop “My Savior” around Easter time, which is on April 4. She announced the plans for this album in an Instagram post on Christmas Day. Hopefully, she can extend happiness and positivity into the new year.

“Last year was a tough year for everybody, and I think just wanting to be positive in this world and sing these songs that bring me so much joy, hopefully, others can be like that as well and these songs can bring others joy. That goes back with everything that I do … I just want to do positive things,” Carrie Underwood said to People.

Carrie Underwood’s Connection to Faith

In 2020, Underwood has been showing her connection to her faith and how it has impacted her music-making process. Underwood is a Christian and was raised in a Baptist church when she was younger. She has had several performances at religious events like the Passion conferences during her career.

Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher, currently have a series online called “Mike and Carrie: God & Country” where they discuss parenting and faith.

According to Taste of Country, Fisher said he wants his kids to not just know about Jesus or God, but to really follow and live like him. The couple has also discussed their marriage and miscarriages in their show. Underwood has been an advocate for equal marriage as well.

“My Savior” is something both she and her fans were excited about.

“When I was making this music, I felt like my soul was in such a great place. I wanted to keep making music like the music off of My Gift … I feel like you guys have been asking me for a while to make an album like that because I’ve been lucky enough to do songs like that here and there along the way in my career. So that’s what I did … Again, it’s just been such a blessing to make music like this, music that is near and dear to my heart. I hope you guys enjoy listening to it as much as I loved making it.”

Be sure to put the release date of “My Savior” on the calendar on April 4.
