A FREE-RANGE CHILDHOOD

Looking back, Underwood has a lot to say about growing up in wide-open fields with breath-taking views in Checotah. Growing up with no cable TV, she described her laid-back childhood as “free-range.”

In her book, the country music songstress wrote that she would spend time with friends doing outdoor activities - hunting snakes, scooping tadpoles and turtles out of the pond, and catching frogs and fireflies. She said:

"When we weren’t in school or sleeping or called in for family dinner, we were usually out there running wild."

Underwood may have a care-free life when she was young, but she did not take her childhood years for granted as she feels lucky to be born in a time of wonder and exploration.

The multi-Grammy Award winner said the elders in her hometown would usually keep an eye on the children, making sure they were okay all the time. Her Checotah neighbors would look out for them as well.

Despite being a famous personality, Underwood strives to make her sons live a normal childhood and keep them grounded.

The singer-songwriter shared that softball was her favorite sport as it taught her to work better in a team. Underwood added that all the lessons she learned from the sport she applied in real life.
