We know Carrie’s an out-and-out country girl who grew up on a farm. She’s devoted to her husband Mark Fisher, their two sons, and their dogs. We know this. But what else do we know about Carrie Underwood? Here are a few things about your favorite country superstar that may surprise you.
She Loves Horror Movies
While most of the world is familiar with sweet, wholesome Carrie, her downtime looks remarkably different. Move over romcoms because Carrie loves horror! She’s a fan of the classics – films inspired by Stephen King, Friday the 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, and Halloween. She’s also a big fan of The Walking Dead.
She Eent Back to College After Idol
Carrie returned to college after winning American Idol. She received a major in Mass Communications from Northeastern State University in Oklahoma, graduating magna cum laude. Carrie was also a member of the Sigma Sigma Sigma sorority and stays in touch with her sisters.
Carrie Had Never Been on a Plane Before Idol
What makes Carrie’s story so compelling is where it all began. She grew up on a farm in Oklahoma – it was a happy life, a quiet life. She participated in local talent shows, got good grades, and attended church. The day she flew to Los Angeles to take part in the Hollywood rounds of American Idol was her first time on a plane.
She’s Neurotic About Being Organized
Carrie likes to keep a tidy house, and then some! She said she’s unable to function all day knowing her bed isn’t made! If you peek into her refrigerator, you’ll find devastatingly organized shelves – bottles and jars neatly arranged in perfect rows, with labels showing on each one.
Her First Acting Gig Was in How I Met Your Mother
Carrie made her acting debut in 2010 as Tiffany, Ted’s love interest in How I Met Your Mother. Most of us may have missed this, especially given the string of potential ‘mothers’ on the show! In 2011, she made her debut in film with Soul Surfer. She later went on to play Maria in The Sound of Music Live by NBC.
