Carrie Underwood Is A Big Fan Of Rock And Metal Music
It comes as no surprise that Underwood is a fan of metal and rock music as the country hitmaker previously shared that her goto playlist for working out always includes “metal or super hard rock music.”
“Working out I honestly listen to metal or super hard rock music,” Underwood previously explained during an interview with CBS Sunday Morning. “I like the band, I Prevail and their ‘Trauma‘ album is on that I have on repeat when I’m working out.”
In fact, Underwood has credited a classic rock singer for helping her find her voice. During an interview with E! Online, Underwood revealed that she actually found her voice from listening to artists like Guns N’ Roses’ singer Axl Rose.
“I’ve covered enough Guns N’ Roses stuff, and it was people like him who taught me how to sing,” Underwood previously told the outlet. “I look at people like him and Freddie Mercury, those people who were doing all these crazy runs. It was so different.”
Rose recently joined Underwood at Stagecoach for an exhilarating two-song performance.
Carrie Underwood Is Preparing To Release Her New Album & Hit The Road Later This Year
Underwood recently wrapped up her REFLECTION: The Las Vegas Residency at Resorts World Las Vegas and has plans to return to the Sin City venue in 2023. However, in the meantime, Underwood is gearing up to release her ninth studio album, Denim & Rhinestones, which will feature 12-tracks, including the project’s lead single “Ghost Story” and more.
“We cover a lot of ground on this album,” Underwood shared in a press release. ”We have a lot of songs that have a bit of a ‘throwback’ feel, but they sound super fresh. I grew up listening to so many different kinds of music and that is extremely evident in this body of work.”
“These are musical influences that are all in me and work their way out, and I just decided this time not to get in their way,” the Oklahoma native added. “I think this whole album ended up being a big reflection of me as a person and as an artist.”
Underwood will soon bring her forthcoming new album to life on a 43-city tour, kicking off this fall.
Produced by AEG Presents, the trek will feature special guest Jimmie Allen on all dates. Launching on October 15 in Greenville, South Carolina, the tour will hit cities around the U.S. including New York, Nashville, Los Angeles, before wrapping up in Seattle, Washington on March 17.
