Carrie Underwood’s heart was so full of music in 2020 that she just couldn’t stop recording! That’s good news for fans of the 2005 American Idol champ who recently released her first Christmas album, My Gift.
Underwood announced to fans on Christmas day that she will be releasing her first ever gospel album in the spring of 2021. In a video posted to her social media, Carrie told fans, “I am very blessed and very lucky because I have been living in Christmas-land all of 2020, which was a great place to be for this year. I’ve been making music that I love and been just giving my heart to the Lord with My Gift.”
She went on to add that she didn’t want the music to end so kept making music. The result was a gospel album titled “My Savior.”
“I felt like my soul was in such a great place, I wanted to keep making music like the music off of My Gift,” Carrie said of the album that will be released in time for Easter.
“I feel like you guys have kind of been asking me for awhile to make an album like that because I’ve been lucky enough to do songs like that here and there along the way in my career. So that’s what I did. It’s just been such a blessing to make music like this, music that is near and dear to my heart.”
Carrie Underwood and her husband of 10 years, Mike Fisher, are devout Christians with both being open about their faith. Over the course of her career, Carrie has performed several hymns including “Softly and Tenderly,” “Just As I Am,” and her fan favorite collaboration with Vince Gill on “How Great Thou Art.”
