OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood's Long Blond Hair Is Here to Stay

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

Carrie Underwood won't do dark or short, so all that cascading blond hair of hers is in it for the long run. She admitted to she has considered a change, though. "I wanted to dye my hair darker. I'm like, 'Let's change my hair color.' We'll do something for like two hours, then I'll walk away, and I'm like, 'This looks the same as before,'" she said. "I don't think I'm meant for short hair, though. I don't feel as pretty when I chop it off." She also added that when it comes to stage hair, more is better. "You can do things you wouldn't really do. You can put glitter on your eyes. Big hair. The bigger, the better. It's fun. It's a nice relaxing time, a calm before the storm, if you will," she explained about her pre-show hair styling routine. And when she's not out on the road, and she gets to go back to her parents' house, she catches up on her sleep. "Home is the only place I can unplug. I sleep so much when I go back. I'll just fall asleep on the floor," she said. "Mom gets worried, but Dad's like, 'Just let her sleep.'"
