When country music star Carrie Underwood gets onstage, she owns the stage, delivers beautifully, and blows her audience away with her performance. This is because the singer had honed her craft from when she was a child. However, there is one thing that makes her scared!


From performing at local talent shows, the Grammy award-winning singer, born on March 10, 1983, won season 4 of "American Idol" and found fame in 2005.

She has released multiple certified Platinum or Multi-Platinum by the RIAA albums, and in 2022, Carrie Underwood surprised her fans with her highly-anticipated album scheduled for June 10.

The album titled "Denim & Rhinestones" comes with an album tour of the same name, which will kick off on October 15, 2022, in Greenville, South Carolina, and will wrap up on March 17, 2023, in Seattle, Washington.

The tour, which boasts extensive headlining, will have singer Jimmie Allen with Underwood on all 43 dates and 43 cities from fall and winter with a pause in December and January.

The singer, who is excited to be hitting the road again and to bring the new music of her album to life, announced that tickets for her concert would be made available to the general public from May 20, 2022, with limited exclusive VIP Packages.



When discussing her 2020 book "Find Your Path: Honor Your Body, Fuel Your Soul, and Get Strong with the Fit52 Life" with Drew Barrymore on "The Drew Barrymore Show," Underwood confessed her fears. She said:

"It's not like a petrifying fear of turtles. I feel like out of all the animals on the planet, and they are the ones who have bit me the most."

Underwood grew up in the country, and turtles were the easiest to catch because they were slow. Unfortunately, her love for animals made her want to hug them hence, getting bitten by them. She can deal with snakes and spiders but is afraid of turtles.



Underwood had a dog named Ace. The dog was the ring bearer at her wedding to Mike Fisher in July 2010. Before their wedding, she said:

"He'll be one of the ring bearers — he's like my kid. Ace is such a big part of my life."

Ace wore a powder pink custom tuxedo, taking everyone by surprise for their big day, paired with a white gold and diamond "A" by Johnathon Arndt.


However, in April 2022, Underwood revealed that she had lost her dog on her Instagram page. In the post's caption, the heartbroken singer wrote:

"…he will forever live on in our hearts and be forever missed. He was there for me when I was on my own trying to figure out life when it was at its craziest! He was with me through 3 houses, 6 tours, and 2 kids."

After stating that he was with her through all the highs and lows, Underwood further noted that she would always love him and hoped to see him on the other side.
