Carrie Underwood is breaking from her history of singing mother-daughter songs now that she has welcomed a son.
The country music star and her husband Mike Fisher welcomed their first child, Isaiah Michael, on Feb. 27. With previous hits about mother/daughter relationships such as “Mama’s Song,” “All-American Girl,” and “Forever Changed,” Carrie acknowledged that she has never had a song pertain to a mother/son connection.
“I just kind of feel a little sad ’cause all my songs are about having girls,” Carrie explained to Unreality TV.
Consequent to the birth of her son, Carrie plans on penning a special song about boys and their mothers in new music that is expected to appear on her forthcoming fifth studio album.
“Like, little boy baby Fisher’s got nothin’,” she joked. “Even ‘Forever Changed,’ which is one of my favorite songs, is definitely like a mother/daughter kind of a song, so… I’m gonna have to get on that.”
Also, “Mama’s Song,” which Carrie co-wrote in honor of her mother ahead of the singer’s 2010 marriage to Fisher, has a “whole new meaning” to the former “American Idol” winner ever since she welcomed her son. As for the new album, Carrie has hinted that she is “definitely” planning on heading back to the recording studio and releasing new music later this year, according to BBC Radio 2.
