OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood: “Now I’m Carrie and Mike”

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

Nothing says you’re a married woman more than a gift enclosure card. That’s what Carrie Underwood admitted to Oprah Winfrey during their recent sit-down chit-chat at Underwood’s Nashville home. She was explaining how she is starting to get used to the idea that she is no longer just Carrie. “For the first year of our marriage, I still would give people gifts and write, ’Love Carrie.’ And I’m like, ’OK. Now I’m Carrie and Mike. There’s two of us now,'” she says. “But I’m getting better all the time. Now, the more I do it, the more I’m able to think more of ’we.'” And even though Underwood says she had plenty of “I can’t believe I’m married” moments, that was just because she spent 27 years of her life not being married. Fisher isn’t a part of this particular conversation, but he was there. I know this because I’ve seen more of the Oprah’s Next Chapter interview where he is a big part of the talk. And because he tweeted about it. “Had a great day hanging with @Oprah what a great person!” he wrote. Underwood did it too, tweeting, “Just a regular day … in Nashville hanging out with @Oprah ;)” Even Winfrey got on the tweeting bandwagon. “Back home in Nashville to interview @Carrieunderwood for Sunday’s #nextchapter Everyone is so darn NICE here!,” she said. The show airs Sunday (May 20) night on OWN.
