When it comes to music, artists can find inspiration from a long list of talented acts that came before them. But when it comes to parenting? That list is shorter — and there’s just two people who inspire Carrie Underwood most.

When a fan reached out to Underwood on Twitter, the star was more than happy to respond:

Underwood lists her mom and dad as her biggest inspirations, saying they’re “pretty dang awesome.”

Stephen and Carole Underwood raised the 31-year-old star, along with her two older sisters, Shanna and Stephanie, on a farm in Checotah, Oklahoma, and both parents worked hard for a living. Despite being busy with careers and raising three girls, Stephen and Carole were incredibly supportive of Underwood’s love of music, and during her childhood, she performed at local talent shows and sang at her church.

Now that she’s a parent-to-be with husband Mike Fisher, it’s likely the superstar will look to her “dang awesome” folks for tips on how to be the best mom possible. Appropriately, Underwood revealed on Labor Day that she’s expecting Baby Fisher in 2015, and not long after, she stepped out at a music festival to show off her adorable growing baby bump for the very first time!
