Carrie Underwood Opens Up About Her Music Career 

During a 2018 interview with Vulture, Carrie Underwood opened up about her music career over the years. “I just like being creative in different ways. So I don’t mind talking about a lot of it. But it can get a little wearing,” Underwood explained. She also said she feels like people still don’t quite grasp that she writes music as well.

The country superstar also recalled the first experience she had with her new team after she won American Idol. “I remember saying to them, ‘I know enough to know that I don’t know anything.’ So I was very reliant upon people around me to help me.”

While chatting about her songwriting, Carrie said the second album felt like she was starting to make a significant contribution to the writing process. “The first [album] was such a blur,” she admitted. The country singer then explained she had writing sessions and had big camps where they would have ten writers come in. 

“I would kind of bounce around from room to room and just see what was going on,” Carrie Underwood recalled. She said in the second album though, having people Hillary Lindsey, Luke Laird, and others were really significant to her. She said the writers never treated her like some singer kid who came off the American Idol stage and had no idea what she was doing. 

In regards to when she started taking an active role in “shaping” the sound of her albums, Carrie Underwood declared it was definitely from the beginning. “I would say with each album it’s been more and more me taking ownership. And more and more writing.”

Carrie Underwood further reported that she has seen artists having others telling them what to do and while their albums were way better than when they started writing everything themselves, that was just something she didn’t want. She goes on to add, “I still rely on my team. I’ve been with some of these people literally since day one, and trust their opinions. It’s not just all about what I wanna hear on the radio.”
