OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood’s 30th Is Not Really a Birthday

(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 is forever 29. That’s what Carrie Underwood wants to think, anyway. She turns 30 on Sunday (March 10), and she isn’t all that thrilled about making the move from her 20s into her 30s. “It’s actually not my birthday. It is the first anniversary of my 29th birthday. So it’s more of an anniversary celebration than a birthday,” Underwood joked to CMT Radio. “I mean, I’ll still, like, blow out candles and stuff because I want my wish, but it’s not a birthday.” There’s no word on what kind of uncelebration she will have, but it would be almost impossible to top last year’s. For her 29th, her husband Mike Fisher threw Underwood a surprise ’80s themed birthday party to commemorate her 1983 birth year.
