Carrie Underwood talks Christmas traditions
From The Tennessean...
Sure, Carrie Underwood's an arena-filling superstar, but she spends Christmas Day a lot like most folks: enjoying her family and indulging in a feast.
"We don't really have that many traditions, but we are together and that's the most important thing," said Underwood, who spends her first Christmas as a married woman this year, having wed Canadian hockey player Mike Fisher in July. "We eat ourselves silly and try, of course, to remember the true meaning of Christmas and celebrate the birth of Jesus. My mom always makes like a broccoli cheese casserole and we do like potato casseroles and stuff like that. Just whatever is meat-free I can load on my plate, I'm there. I am not a picky eater. I just love food."
Underwood has plenty of recent goings-on to talk about at the Christmas dinner table, too, as she's already had an honor-filled December: On Dec. 6 in Las Vegas, she was named artist of the year at the inaugural American Country Awards, and on Dec. 14, her name popped up among the Golden Globe Awards nominees — she earned a nod in the best original song-motion picture category, alongside Hillary Lindsey and David Hodges, for "There's a Place For Us" from The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.
Underwood finds out whether she adds a Golden Globe to her cache of trophies Jan. 16, when the awards show airs live on NBC from 7 to 10 p.m.
