What 2017 Holds for Carrie Underwood

“There’s No Real Plan”

Finally, Carrie Underwood has a blank canvas. Or a blank calendar, at least.

Before Sunday night’s (Jan. 8) Golden Globes, where Underwood was a presenter, she walked the red carpet and stopped to talk to Ryan Seacrest about what 2017 had in store for her, after a 2016 that was packed with about 100 tour stops in America and Australia.

“I’m trying to figure out what’s next. I think I’m gonna enjoy a little time with my family, and then start writing and seeing what I’m ready to do,” Underwood told him. “There’s no real plan.”

But she will not be bored.

“There’s always stuff to do,” she said. “I feel like my house is a wreck, so I’ve got to get things in order. Every time we go home for short, 24- or 48-hour stints, I just drop stuff off and leave again. And now I’m just trying to make sense of life.”

They also talked about her very first skydiving adventure in Australia, and what scared her the most.

“You get to the door and you just see that everything is so far away,” she said, “and your brain says, ‘No. What are you doing?’”

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
