    Carrie Underwood Is “Impeccable,” Says Michael W. Smith

    Carrie Underwood Is “Impeccable,” Says Michael W. Smith

    by Alison Bonaguro
    Dec 12, 2014

    I’m pretty sure that singing a duet with Carrie Underwood is on a lot of bucket lists this year and every year. And this year, contemporary Christian singer-songwriter Michael W. Smith got his wish.

    Underwood was one of the first artists he asked to join him in singing for his latest Christmas album.

    And this is how he described his day in the recording studio with Underwood: “Wow.”

    “What a moment,” Smith told People magazine. “It made my hair stand up a little bit. In my entire life, I’ve never felt that way in the studio. When she sang it the first time, we were plastered against the wall.

    “Usually you’re like, ‘That’s great, but let’s just try it again,’ but I remember pushing the talkback button, and we just said, ‘Wow,’” he recalled of his one-and-done experience.

    Underwood’s response? She told Smith, “Well, I’m just getting warmed up.”

    “You just don’t hear people sing like that,” he added. “Her pitch is just impeccable.”

    Smith’s album, The Spirit of Christmas, features “All Is Well,” that song Underwood plastered to the wall. Other impeccable performances include Smith’s collaborations Lady Antebellum on “White Christmas,” Little Big Town on “Silent Night,” Martina McBride on “What Child Is This” and so many more.

    You know, Michael's not the only one that has commented on Carrie's vocal abilities. She seems to surprise some of the most talented artists in the business. It's like they know her reputation, but are flabbergasted when they finally record with her. She's one intimidating girl.

    I really think its one thing to here her on a recording, but when you are standing in the room and that tone just comes right out of her mouth, I truly believe its a bit of a wow for pretty much anyone. She does have a beautiful voice.
    I think the producers of Idol probably hit the floor when they first heard it live....

    I felt really down after I read the following tweet yesterday, then realized (hoped) he was talking about the song, not the performance.

    What's @michaelwsmith's fave song from his new album? Why, it's a little duet with the one and only @AmyGrant. http://instagram.com/p/wWqb1NBjKS/

    A lot of people complement her singing especially ones who sing with her. What a great complement.

    they have a history. Its polite and respectable to say. Besides, the fact that he felt his Amy Grant duet was his favorite still puts Carrie in great company with these. They are at the top of their game in Christian music....
