OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood: “Good on the Kid Front”

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

She had bangs. But no baby. When Carrie Underwood walked the red carpet at the I Heart Radio music festival in Las Vegas on Friday (Sept. 23), she told E!, “I’m good on the kid front right now. Mike and I are both so busy. We want to do what’s best for us and our future children. Anytime within the next few years would just be bad.” But she did admit that when the time is right, she and husband Mike Fisher will have to have the talk. You know, the one about how many kids to have. “I say two, but he grew up in a family of four,” she said. “I just don’t know if I can do that. I would probably want to pull my hair out.” Underwood did talk music, too, because the nature of the festival was an all-genre show. She said she could never see herself venturing into the hip-hop genre, telling E!, “We did this sketch once in college. We said we were going to start a new music. It was country and rap and we were going to call it crap music.” The pictures from the event show Underwood with a new haircut and adorable face-framing bangs. Not as cute as a baby bump, but still cute.
