When Glamour magazine asked Carrie Underwood how she felt about launching her career with a song about Jesus ("Jesus, Take the Wheel"), she said it never occurred to her to worry. Country music, she explained, just has a Bible Belt-ness about it and that she's not the first person to sing about God, Jesus and faith. Nor will she be the last. As for day-to-day religion, it definitely sounds like it's a big part of Underwood's life. "Every Wednesday, my husband and I have a study group with our friends. I attend church. We try to devote time in the morning, say a prayer," Underwood said. "I'm not a big reader, though. I have to feel it, hear it, touch it be involved in it."
