Carrie Underwood Talks ‘Storyteller’ Song About Mike Fisher, Touring With a Baby
This week Carrie Underwood revealed a new single and a new album, but said nothing of tour plans. That's coming, she tells Taste of Country Nights radio. Fans can expect to know more soon, she said during a phone call with the show, but it's kind of complicated.
Routing and booking venues is always difficult, but doing so while trying to work around a professional hockey team's schedule is even more challenging. Underwood wants to make sure husband Mike Fisher gets time with her and their son Isaiah when he's parked in place for a few days at a time. So she's trying to align days off with Nashville Predators home games.
“I’m not gonna say he’s sad about it, because he understands,” the 32-year-old says about her husband missing time with Isaiah. “But he’ll definitely miss us. I mean thank God for FaceTime.”
“Hopefully we can get all of that mapped out really soon,” she adds before almost promising fans would have all the details before Storyteller is released on Oct. 23.
"Smoke Break" is the first single from Storyteller, Underwood's fifth studio album and her first in three-and-a-half years. In June she told the show a song influenced by her son made the album. During our recent conversation with her she shared that that song (still no title) is also about Mike Fisher.
“It’s kind of one of the same song,” she says. “(It's) about the things we never really knew that we wanted in life. You don’t realize that there’s something missing until you have it.”
Fisher, like their baby boy, completes something inside her that she didn't know needed completing.
