    Carrie Underwood's Fiddler Sees the World

    Jimmy Herman

    Carrie Underwood's fiddler, Jimmy Herman, has been in her band for seven years. So almost the entire time she's been touring as her own headliner.


    And if you ask him, she's a pretty great boss.


    Herman talked to Examiner.com about what it's been like on the road with Underwood all those years, and it sounds like it's all good. That's because of the kind of example she sets.


    "She is an amazing vocalist and an extremely down-to-earth girl. What you see is what you get. Her head is on straight, and she definitely has an appreciation for where she came from and what it took to get to where she's at now," Herman said, adding, "I can't say enough good things about Carrie and her camp."


    For those seven years, Herman has been able to back Underwood in every kind of venue and in every kind of city. And that's been "an awesome experience to say the least."


    "It's given me the opportunity to travel the world and perform to some of the largest audiences internationally," he said. But when they are a little closer to home, Herman said that his wife and kids will drive to a show to watch him play. "My kiddos love to watch the show. They love it so much, they usually end up falling asleep by the sixth or seventh song," he says.


    Maybe that's because they hear their dad enough when he's off the road. Once a fiddler, always a fiddler, right? Herman has been playing since he was 5 years old.


    "I would sit and learn fiddle parts that were recorded on some of my favorite songs growing up. I loved to play 'The Devil Went Down to Georgia,' 'The South's Gonna Do It Again' and 'Uncle Pen.' Over the years, my taste in music has definitely evolved and now I'm a rocker at heart," he said, "but I still love the classic country artists and old-time fiddle tunes just as much as I did when I was a kid."
