    Carrie Underwood brings 'Storyteller' tour to Roanoke - Roanoke Times: Music

    Roanoke has seen Carrie Underwood rise high. Next time she comes to Berglund Coliseum, though, she’ll keep her feet close to the ground.

    In a 2010 show here, the high-heeled singer rode a pickup truck bed, suspended from the arena ceiling to pull her across the room. Three years later, she and some band members rode a “flying” stage shaped like hot air balloons.

    No air time is planned when Underwood brings her act back to Berglund on Monday. This time out, she’ll be on an “in the round” stage, looking to project 360 degrees, instead of peering downward.

    “There’s still some really cool moments, and our stage can do some pretty spectacular things,” Underwood said in a phone call last week. “But there’s no flying this time.”

    It must be some show, for Underwood received an Entertainer of the Year nomination for the CMA Awards, set for broadcast Nov. 2 on ABC. Her latest album, “Storyteller,” is nominated for Album of the Year at the 50th annual awards presentation. Other nominations are for Female Vocalist of the Year and Musical Event of the Year (for Keith Urban’s “Fighter,” featuring Underwood).

    Oh, and she’ll be hosting the ceremony for the ninth time, along with another country music superstar, Brad Paisley. The two have already received the CMA’s Chairman Award this year, in honor of their hosting work.

    Otherwise, Underwood hasn’t taken a CMA trophy since the first year she hosted, when she won three. Is it weird to win an award at a show one is hosting?

    “I won’t think it’s weird,” she said. “I’ll think it’s awesome if it happens.”

    Where the stage show is concerned, Underwood isn’t trying to top previous tours. Instead, it’s about making the concert “feel different” from the last time she played a venue. She said that she and her crew started about six months before the tour began, brainstorming the look and feel.

    She conquered a fear of heights in the past, by rising above audiences in the pickup truck and the balloon sets. Her present setup carries another kind of intimidation, she said. The audience is all around her, and she was worried about projecting herself to everyone.

    “If you’re going to be in the round, you’ve gotta make sure you’re owning it, you know,” she said. Months after beginning the tour, though, “It just feels good. I don’t know, to be honest, if I can go back” to typical stage setups.

    “Storyteller,” the fifth album in her 11-year recording career, got the usual reception, debuting at No. 1 on both Billboard magazine’s all-genres chart and country chart. It included No. 1 country single “Heartbeat,” which Underwood co-wrote, and No. 1 country radio airplay single “Church Bells,” from another writing team.

    “I definitely kind of put my own songs in the pile with all the songs,” she said of selecting material. “In the end, I want the best album possible. So if that’s an album full of just my co-writes, that’s awesome. If I don’t get any, that’s fine, too.”

    Either way, it requires a lot of listening. This time out, she had company — her baby son, Isaiah Fisher.

    “When Isaiah was really little and I was getting up in the middle of the night and feeding him, that was my listening-to-demo time,” she said. “I listened to many a song at 11 [p.m.] and 2 [a.m.].

    “I think he liked it, too.”

    These days, Isaiah is headed for the terrible 2s, and logging a lot of road miles on tour.

    “So far, so good,” Underwood said of balancing motherhood and touring. “We’re just always trying to figure it all out as we go along, because there’s no rule books or guides on this strange life we live. But he’s such an easy baby. It’s like ‘take your kid to work day’ every day for me.”

    That’s a perk of her life. She can bring the family on the bus.

    “I do feel bad, though,” she said. “Sometimes I sit around and I think, I hope he enjoys his life, because it’s not your typical baby’s life. We try to take him to parks and aquariums and zoos and things like that when we can.”

    The kid will grow up in a world without TV talent show “American Idol,” which put Underwood on the pop culture map in the first place. It ended this year, after 15 seasons.

    “I definitely feel like I get it, why it ended,” she said. “There are now so many talent shows on TV. Fifteen years is a long time for any show to last on TV. They should be proud of that and the careers they’ve created and the people they’ve inspired along the way. It was definitely bittersweet.”

    Underwood won season four, in May 2005. Underwood and Kelly Clarkson are the only winners to have had truly sustained success. She said she had no formula to get here.

    “I still sit back and think, ‘How did I win that? How did that many people vote for me week after week?’” she said. “It isn’t a given that somebody’s going to come off the show and just magically be a star. I got lucky. I don’t know how I get to do what I do. I think it all somehow just worked out. I guess if there were an answer, then everybody would know it, you know.”
