    Carrie Underwood: 'You can't be afraid to sound stupid when writing'

    Carrie Underwood has insisted that she doesn't worry about sounding "stupid" when writing new songs.

    The 'Good Girl' singer said that while recording her fourth studio LP Blown Away, she tried to keep an open mind and follow her inspiration wherever it led, regardless of the end result.

    "When you go in to write, you have to be willing to sound stupid," Underwood explained in a new interview with The AP.

    "Before you have a chance to think about something, you blurt it out and it doesn't make any sense, and everybody gets a good laugh out of it. You can't be afraid to sound completely dumb when you go to write."

    However, Underwood confessed that she is glad she has learned how to handle herself in public situations since her days as an American Idol contestant.

    "I'm glad I can present a polished version of myself when it counts. When I was on Idol I said some dumb stuff, and learned what that could do, and that stuff lives on," she recalled. "It seemed like every single solitary stupid thing I said was aired and featured and replayed over and over and over again."

    This is very true. I am a writer myself and some of the words I come out with sound stupid at the time. That's why going back and editing afterwards is wonderful.

    so agree...that's how great songs come to be...the best thing you can do is brainstorm and blurt out anything you are thinking...because it may trigger another thought by a person you are with!
