OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood Doesn’t Have a Jesus Quota

out of the spotlight.)

If you’ve heard Carrie Underwood’s new song “See
You Again,” you know it’s yet another reminder that her faith is strong. In People magazine’s new country special issue,
she talked about the day she wrote it with David Hodges and Hillary Lindsey. “Everybody in the room — myself, Hillary and
David — believes there is something greater out there, so we wanted this positive, comforting message,” Underwood said. While
the song is about saying goodbye, they tried to portray it in a happy way. And she does try to make her faith a theme throughout
her albums, but not in a calculated way. “It’s not a conscious effort, like, ‘I need this many Jesus songs on my album!’ but
it fills a gap for me,” she said. “Songs like this will mean a lot even after I’m gone.” So while Underwood doesn’t have a
quota to fill, per se, I think her approach so far — with “Jesus,
Take the Wheel”
in 2005, “So Small” in 2007, “Temporary
Home”
in 2009 and now this new one — keeps that faith alive.
