Carrie Underwood for Marie Claire US June 2013

On what she wrote in her high school yearbook: "You were supposed to say what you would be doing in 10 years, and I said, 'I will be rich, famous, and married to a hot guy.' I guess I should have added a few more things."

On her secret talent: "I can eat any man under the table." 

On things she's bad at: "I'm probably not great at talking or understanding emotional things. I'll totally listen. But I won't have a lot of advice to give. I'm bad at calling to check in, the long conversation. But in the ways that really matter, I'm there. I would donate a kidney. The people they hate, I hate."

On her favorite singers: "George Michael. Even as a 3-year-old I could pick his voice out of a million. I liked Queen growing up because [Freddie Mercury] could do things I couldn't do. Aerosmith, same thing. Martina McBride hit a lot of awesome, high, long notes. I'd make myself do them. She taught me how to sing, in a way."

On what is next for her: Portraying Maria von Trapp in a three-hour live version of The Sound of Music, airing this holiday season on NBC. "People are so crazy auto-tuned, and there's so much on TV that isn't wholesome. This seemed to be the best of all worlds."

On lengths she'll go to for good TV: "We have The Walking Dead nights on the tour bus. At one point in Pittsburgh we didn't get satellite reception, so we asked the driver if he could drive us around for an hour. I'm a fan. I'm just waiting for the offer. I could be a zombie."

On having kids: “I don’t feel old enough to have kids. I know I am mature. But being responsible for another human?”

On her personality: “I’m not a mushy person at all. We were never a huggy family. Or a ‘let’s talk it out’ family. Technically I have siblings but they are quite a bit older than me – I was the accident – so I have the only-child syndrome going on. I’m a little more selfish, a little more independent, a little closed. I do wish I were softer. I wish I were able to form relationships better. But hey, I mean…I’m not a sociopath.”

On being awkward: “My husband calls me the queen of awkward moments. Anything that can be made awkward, I will make it awkward.”
