Carrie Underwood was a guest on Talking Dead last night (Feb. 14) and was adamant to the hosts that she would survive a zombie apocalypse. The program, which analyzes the television series The Walking Dead, also had the country singer choosing Luke Bryan as the country star who would help her survive a zombie apocalypse much to the disagreement of Twitter fans.
“I know what you’re thinking, but I was born to survive the zombie apocalypse,” she tells host Chris Hardwick. “My husband bought me this zombie-survival kit for Christmas. I have a machete, I know how to use it. My songs are quite aggressive at times. I’m not afraid. I would know what to do. I was born for this.”
Despite Underwood’s certainty at survival, a poll taken during the show saw that 37 percent of voters thought Underwood would be able to successfully escape a zombie apocalypse while 63 percent said she wouldn’t.
“I would! I would! You’re wrong! Wrong!” she asserts.
Meanwhile, Twitter watchers thought her choice of Bryan to help her with her survival was the main reason she would die. Some suggested Underwood bringing Brantley Gilbert with her would increase her chance of survival.
Carrie Underwood would take Luke Bryan into the zombie apocalypse?! What's he gonna do shake his butt for the walkers? Take Brantley Gilbert

@carrieunderwood you'd last 5 minutes if Luke Bryan was your zombie killing partner. C'mon now.

The fact that Carrie Underwood said she'd take Luke Bryan into the zombie apocalypse is exactly why she'd not survive. #TalkingDeadAMC

While the zombie apocalypse debate is still ongoing on Twitter, Sam Hunt could be another contender for Underwood. Perhaps the two could lull the zombies into submission with their song “Heartbeat.” Maybe that wouldn’t actually happen, but the two will share the stage tonight on the 58th Annual Grammy Awards where both country artists are also nominated. Underwood is up for Best Country Solo Performance for her tune “Little Toy Guns,” and Hunt is up for Best Country Album for Montevallo, as well as the all-genre category Best New Artist.
