Carrie Underwood Doesn't Plan On Accommodating All Concert Requests
Carrie Underwood says on stage moments like giving a 12-year-old boy in Kentucky his first kiss aren't going to happen at every concert. The country star is currently on her "Blown Away" tour. She tells Orange County, California's "The OC Register" that all sorts of personal requests -- for other kisses, for the chance to sing with her, for her to sing "Happy Birthday" -- have cropped up at her shows since that lip-lock in Louisville. Carrie says she appreciates the time and effort fans put into their homemade signs, but she admits they're also distracting. She explains that she has "a hard time reading and singing at the same time," and she "cannot do both successfully." Underwood adds that she's affected by some signs. She recalls one sign said the fan was missing their homecoming for her concert, and she "felt bad" about that.
But Underwood's not the only one getting sign requests. She says her opener, Hunter Hayes," is also getting asked for kisses -- and Carrie's approval if he acts on those signs. She says Hunter's "young" and "should have fun." Underwood and Hayes are performing in Reno, Nevada on Friday.
