Carrie Underwood on Confidence: “Some Days You’ve Just Got to Fake It”

Carrie Underwood on Confidence: “Some Days You’ve Just Got to Fake It”

Carrie Underwood has mastered a number of musical skill sets since launching her career in 2005. Singing? Check. Performing? Check. Songwriting? Check. Marketability? Check.

But Carrie has also has shown a willingness to step out of her comfort zone to try new endeavors, including starting her own Calia clothing line in 2015, co-producing her Cry Pretty album in 2018, and writing her first book, Find Your Path, in 2020.

As Carrie told Kix Brooks of American Country Countdown, the best way to gain confidence is by doing, but sometimes “you’ve just got to fake it.”

“Some days you’ve just got to fake it, man [laughing],” says Carrie. “I’m not gonna lie. Some days you don’t feel confident. You don’t feel up to it or you don’t feel… whatever it is, but I feel like the more you step into that role anyway . . . the more you start to feel it. So, if I’m going into a situation that I question—like producing, I had never done it before [Cry Pretty]. I don’t know how to be a producer. I’ve worked with plenty, so it was kind of like in the beginning, it’s like, ‘Okay, just kind of pretend like you know what you’re doing [laughing] until you actually do,’ and I feel like that worked.”

Carrie launched a new fitness app, fit52, in conjunction with the release of her new book, Find Your Path, which hit the shelves on March 3.
