out of the spotlight.)

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.”
