Carrie Underwood is a country music superstar, no doubt. With six consecutive Number 1 albums, countless awards, never-ending hit singles, and legs that make the entire world want to exercise, the Sony Music Nashville recording artist is one of the most prominent players on the field.
With so much success and stage presence that few can amount to, it makes you wonder what the gorgeous and talented Carrie is like when the cameras stop rolling and nobody is looking, doesn’t it? We have the answer for you, courtesy of an insider.
According to our source who filled us in recently, Carrie Underwood is one of the nicest artists she has ever met and is always great to her fans. This opinion is based on several occurrences, going back to years ago and leading all the way up to the 2015 CMA Awards.
This particular source had an encounter with Carrie where the singer-songwriter approached her, complimented her skin and makeup, and took copious notes about her personal care. Acting just like you and me, Carrie engaged her in conversation, was completely down-to-earth, and treated her in a way that she has never forgotten. It was around that same time she witnessed Carrie communicate with a young fan in a wheelchair, doing so in the most caring way possible.
I was behind-the-scenes at CRS two years ago when she met this little girl in a wheelchair and she got down on her level to talk to her. It was so sweet!
The 49th Annual CMA Awards red carpet was no different, as Carrie was a standout individual when no one was paying close attention, making sure to greet fans, walk over to them, say hello, and create a lasting impression. Carrie also took time to speak with those working the event, standing under a tent and hanging out with those putting their efforts into the award show “when she didn’t have to.”
Just a few weeks ago, social media also had a hand in displaying Carrie’s kindness toward fans the week of her Storyteller album release. On Twitter, fans were sharing photographs of their favorite female stopping to talk to them, sign autographs, take pictures, and thank them for their support.
The reason for this article is simple: It is important to remember that behind every artist is a human being, and sometimes the real people underneath the names are as wonderful as they are talented. What says the most about a celebrity as a person is how they act when all eyes aren’t on them and the cameras are turned off. It seems as though Carrie Underwood is one of those stars who remembers where she came from; appreciates who helped her get there; and intends to keep those supporters on her team as she moves forward.
In a world of negative press and outspokenness, isn’t that just a good thing to know?
