Carrie Underwood stopped by The Late Show With Stephen Colbert on Oct. 3 for a sit-down interview and to perform her new song, “Low.”
During her interview with Stephen, Carrie chatted about her 15th anniversary of trying out for American Idol, flying on a plane for the first time, getting college credits while on Idol, hosting the upcoming CMA Awards with Dolly Parton and Reba McEntire and more.
When Stephen asked Carrie about the CMA Awards’ theme this year—celebrating the legacy of women in country music—she was ready to explain.
“I feel like women are the backbone of country music, when you think back to some of the greatest country artists of all time, like Dolly, Reba, Loretta, Patsy, yeah, Tammy—they don’t even need last names,” said Carrie. “They taught me how to sing, they taught me how to act, how to dress, how to be onstage, they taught me that anything was possible. They’re why I get to do what I get to do, so I’m glad we’re celebrating that and hopefully we can keep that legacy going.”
After the chat, Carrie performed “Low,” a tune she co-penned with Hillary Lindsey and David Garcia for her 2018 album, Cry Pretty.
