Good news, Carrie Underwood fans! If it feels like the 'Before He Cheats' singer has been under the radar lately, that's not because she's in hiding. She's still hard at work on her new album. But with her busy schedule and her husband Mike Fisher's equally as busy hockey calendar, it seems that the couple loses out on quality time together -- so when their one-year anniversary rolled around, they used the day to just breathe.

"My husband actually had shoulder surgery earlier this summer so we really couldn’t go too far away because he needed to be [home] for physical therapy like every single day," Underwood revealed, mapping out the timeline for her wedding anniversary, which was July 10. "Our anniversary actually fell on a weekend so we were able to go to a really nice spot nearby Nashville and sort of just veg out -- and we ate a lot and just had a nice, nice weekend."

We're glad that Underwood got some time to rest, because a new album is calling. The singer explained in her red carpet interview with RumorFix, shot in Los Angeles., why exactly she was spending time in the star-studded city. "Right now I’m working on my next album … I’ve been doing a few shows here and there … and I’ve been writing a little bit," she spilled.

The next album has been a long time coming. Underwood released her last record, 'Play On,' in 2009, and 'Carnival Ride' two years before in 2007. If she stays on track with that schedule, we should be getting a freshly packed Underwood record by the end of the year.
