Underwood Opens up about Spending Quarantine with Her Family
In an April 2021 interview with CBS Sunday Morning, seen above, Underwood opened up about her family and how they spent their time together during quarantine.
She said of her husband and the pandemic experience, “Like, it’s kinda weird… He’s like, ‘No, you know you love someone, but it’s like, when you are off doing your own thing, and then, you know, you come have dinner together, you don’t really have to, like, deal with each other that much.'”
The singer added, “We’ve been together, and some couples kinda get stronger, and you see some go the other way. And so, like, we were really good at being together all day, every day.”
Underwood concluded, “… there was just a lot of heaviness of the past year. But there were also a lot of silver linings, and I got to sit in one place and watch my boys grow up.”
The family lives in Tennessee, according to Hello Magazine, on a $3 million estate.
In May 2020, Underwood and Fisher were part of a short film series called “Mike & Carrie: God & Country”.
Jonah Ingram, the director of the series, told The Tennessean in an interview, “It feels less like a conventional interview when they talk about moments in their life and more like a candid conversation that you feel like you’re just hanging out with Mike and Carrie… They’re sharing very meaningful, very deep, sometimes very spiritual, sometimes very humorous times of their life.”

Underwood Heads to Las Vegas This December
This December, according to ET Online, Underwood will perform at Resorts World Las Vegas as part of her first-ever residency, titled, “Reflection.”
Earlier this month, she told ET, “I love those moments being on stage, it’s so wonderful. But then when you don’t have any of that … I’ll take my kids, you know, action figures and like, line them up in front of me or something, sing to them just so I can feel something.”
The singer added, “It’s gonna be all about the rhinestones, all about the fringe… I do change wardrobe throughout shows and whatnot anyway, so I feel like this is just gonna be a great opportunity to be able to do that. And we just want to have fun, we want the audience to have fun.”
She shared that she will be bringing her husband and sons along for the ride. Underwood’s residency kicks off on December 1.
