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

As Carrie Underwood closed 20/20:
All Access Nashville with Katie Couric
on Friday night (Oct. 26), she admitted that even though she’d come into country
music the American Idol way, she said, “I grew up with country music in my heart.” She talked about how country music’s
own heart was the voice. “The women of country make for one powerful chorus of inspiration,” she said as she started in on
a love list among country’s leading ladies.

Darius Rucker loves
Patsy Cline (“When I was in college, I found out my girlfriend was cheating
on me. And she broke up with me and I went and I put on ‘She’s Got You’ about 37 times in a row and cried the whole time.”);
Martina McBride loves Loretta
Lynn
, Little Big Town loves McBride (“The singer of all singers”);
Luke Bryan loves Reba
McEntire
, Jason Aldean loves Dolly
Parton
; and Brad Paisley and Lauren
Alaina
love Underwood.

The show even asked the two stars of the new show Nashville who their favorite girl
singers were. Connie Britton said, “An artist who I have just been inspired by and loved my whole life is Bonnie
Raitt
. She transcends all different kinds of music.” And Hayden Panettiere said she’d probably have to go with Miranda
Lambert
. “She’s got that edge that I relate to,” she said. “But she also has those amazingly heartfelt songs and those
beautiful lyrics.”
