Carrie Underwood Not Looking For Pop Success
Carrie Underwood says she doesn't plan to stray from country music. The singer tells the UK's "Guardian" that she's worked with such pop and R&B hit makers as Max Martin and Ryan Tedder, as well as "people who've worked with hardcore rap artists." Carrie explains that it's "nice to branch out," because "you always want to grow as an artist and you don't want to make the same album again." Underwood adds that she might "want to experiment," but would "never intentionally do anything that might leave country music."
Carrie just wrapped up a series of overseas dates over the weekend. She made her performance debut in Ireland last Thursday, and was the headliner Sunday to cap off the inaugural C2C: Country To Country festival in London. Underwood will return to the U.S. this week to resume her North American "Blown Away" tour. Her next show is set for Richmond, Virginia on Thursday.
