Carrie Underwood graces the February cover of Allure Magazine and inside she talks about ABC’s “Nashville,” her marriage and her take on gay marriage. The “Good Girl” singer also did a photo shoot for the magazine on location at Oklahoma City’s historic Overholser Mansion.
Carrie opened up about her own relationship with her hockey playing hubby, Nashville Predator’s Mike Fisher. She does not have issues trusting Mike even with their busy schedules saying,
“We’ve seen a lot of celebrities, professional athletes, not exactly always being on their best behavior away from girlfriends, wives, families,” she says. But she’s not concerned about Fisher. “People would say, ‘Do you ever worry that—you know—he’s an athlete, he’s young, he’s good-looking?’ And I’ve never had to worry about him,” she continues, “because I’ve never trusted anybody so completely. Or I didn’t know the true meaning of trust. He just…he just wouldn’t do that.”
We want that person to be everything we’ve always wanted,” she replies. “If they’re not Prince Charming, we try to make them Prince Charming. But Prince Charming does exist! I found one.”
Taking pride in the fact that she KNOWS she’s found THE one, Carrie wants everyone to have that right, including gay and lesbian couples.
“As a married person myself, I don’t know what it’s like to be told I can’t marry somebody I love,” she told a British newspaper. She elaborates: “I’m in favor of acceptance,” she says flatly. “And I am a Christian person, and I do love the Lord, and I feel no matter who you are, what you believe, how you live your life, it’s not my place to judge. I don’t have that power. I don’t want that power. It’s my place to love and to show God’s love to other people, even if they don’t live a life like I live. So that’s where I’m coming from.”
In addition to relationship talk, the former “American Idol” champ also discussed ABC’s “Nashville.” Hayden Panettiere has said she was inspired by Carrie’s stage presence, but Carrie wanted to be clear that she is nothing like Hayden’s character personality wise.
“I’m not like that at all. It’s juicy, but I hope not everybody thinks that everything goes down like that in Nashville, and we’re evil. To be honest, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with other types of music—and we’re the least drama-rific people.”
