OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood: From Wham to Avenged Sevenfold

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

So many artists will tell you they have really eclectic taste in music and that they like
everything. But Carrie Underwood’s list of the music of her life
is seriously thorough. In the new People Country Special issue, she said
she likes to listen to Wham! before her shows (“It’s impossible to listen to Wham! and not want to dance silly,” she says)
and that her favorite workout music is the angry stuff from Avenged Sevenfold (a heavy metal band whose music isn’t at all
as biblical as their name). Other fun facts from the soundtrack to Underwood’s life? Her first CD was Bush’s Razorblade
Suitcase
, her first concert was Alan Jackson and Faith
Hill
in Tulsa, and the CD she’d take to a deserted island is Jimmy Eat World’s Bleed American. As for her husband
Mike Fisher, she admits the songs he likes to sing to her are her own — to make fun of her. “Since he plays hockey, he hears
15-second song clips in the rink, and that’s all he knows,” she said. “But when my songs come on the radio, he won’t let me
change the channel. He’ll stop my hand, and he’ll sing.”
