“I really haven’t looked at anything,” Carrie Underwood admits to ‘BBC Breakfast‘ of the backlash which resulted from her coming out in support of gay marriage. “I learned a long time ago that you cannot live your life for other people. You have to run your own race and do what you do and love what you do.”
Country superstar Carrie Underwood has spoken up in support of gay marriage. During a lengthy interview with British newspaper the Independent, Underwood admits she and husband Mike Fisher attend a gay-friendly church in Nashville, and that she believes two people who love each other should be able to do so without scrutiny.
Toby Keith and actress Kristen Bell eventually took the stage to host the 2012 CMT Music Awards, but if you followed the opening moments of the show, you learned it wasn’t easy for them to get along.

Jason Aldean hopes to pay homage to those who live in the ‘Fly Over States’ with his new single from the ‘My Kinda Party’ album, but he fears that the tune is an obvious choice for use in a political campaign, which if used would chip away at the integrity. The last thing the Georgia-born singer wants is to be tied to a candidate — especially one who doesn’t share his interests.
While we often check out our friends’ Spotify playlists to see what they’re spinning and who they’re into at any given moment, we don’t really think to check the playlist posted by, say, a national politician.
