    Fame is 'easier' with fourth album says Carrie Underwood

    Attachment 28680

    Country artist Carrie Underwood speaks to Canada AM, Friday, May 18, 2012.

    Seven years after winning "American Idol," Carried Underwood is still topping the charts with the release of her fourth album, "Blown Away." But in spite of her success and celebrity marriage to Canadian-born hockey star Mike Fisher, the top-selling country artist says she and her hubby are just a regular couple trying to keep success in perspective.

    Underwood may be a star. But fame hasn't safeguarded Underwood from hockey fans' criticisms of late, particularly when she watches her husband, Nashville Predators player Fisher, play on the ice.

    "I'll read comments like 'We'll get to see more Carrie Underwood on Sports Centre," the star said in an interview broadcast on CTV's Canada AM Friday.

    "I'm just there to support my husband...he's awesome," Underwood told Canada AM co-host Beverly Thomson.

    Seven years after winning season four of "American Idol," the 29-year-old singer leads a down-to-earth life in Nashville with husband Fisher, 31.

    "Mike's on his tractor. I'm outdoors all the time. I'm a farm girl," said Underwood.

    "In our house the pucks and trophies are proudly displayed in their place, but not throughout the whole house. We try to live away from all that," she said.

    Still, Underwood's singing chops and strong stage presence continue to attract the limelight.

    The multi-platinum Grammy winner released her fourth studio album in North America on May 1, 2012. "Blown Away" debuted at No. 1 in Canada, the United States and on the Billboard 200.

    Underwood's latest album sold 267,000 copies within the first week of its release, making it the second biggest debut so far in 2012.

    Underwood's latest effort features a mix of big ballads, a dark revenge tune entitled "Two Black Cadillacs," and the guitar-charged, rock-flavoured single, "Good Girl."

    "I get to be a good girl and I get to be the edgy girl. It was fun," said Underwood.

    From rock to blues to island reggae, "Blown Away" marks a more adventurous turn for the country artist's career.

    "I want to keep things interesting for myself," said Underwood.

    "I love being able to have country music that has other influences to it," she said.

    "Blown Away" debuted to generally good reviews.

    The New York Times wrote, "Ms. Underwood enjoys rage; her huge voice, both na�ve and muscular, is well suited to it."

    Country Weekly called it Underwood's "most well-rounded and confident work to date."

    Other publications, such as Rolling Stone, were less effusive in their praises.

    "Underwood's voice is as powerful as every," wrote Rolling Stone. "But Blown Away tries too hard, ratcheting up melodrama with strings and effects."

    Underwood takes those criticisms and the pressure to sell millions of CDs in good stride today.

    "It's a little better now because I

    That was a great interview. I laughed at her getting worried that Mike was recognized buying baby clothes.
