It’s true that country superstar Carrie Underwood lives a life that we all might envy. Getting to walk onstage in sparkly gowns and gorgeous high heels to sing two hours worth of songs for thousands of adoring fans sounds like a mighty nice way to spend a Thursday night.
But what most fans don’t think about is where she goes after she walks off that stage. Because as her audience is still in awe over the show she just put on, Carrie is usually well on her way backstage, heading straight to the comforts of her tour bus sitting in the parking lot.
And it’s at that moment – life gets real.
“It’s ‘Bring Your Baby to Work Day’ every day with me,” Carrie tells the Charlotte Observer newspaper. “It’s been a challenge and sometimes it’s been stressful, but it’s been really great, too. … He gets to be with me all day, and I get to be with him.”
The story goes on to say that Carrie’s son with hubby Mike Fisher, Isaiah Michael, has taken over much of the tour bus, with his toys strewn around the floor and a baby bathtub in the shower. “(His crib) is about two feet from my bed,” Carrie continues. “I won’t say he always manages to sleep there all night, but we’ve always started out there, at least.”
And yes, EVERYTHING is baby-proofed.
“We had to put locking mechanisms on all the doors – which sometimes is really annoying, because if you try to open a drawer, you’re like, ‘Ugh, it’s locked,’ and then you have to get up and walk to the other side of the bus and press a button,” Carrie says. “But I couldn’t have him falling down the trash chute!””
You got that right, Carrie.
