Carrie Underwood Builds Babyproof Bus
Carrie Underwood is ready to take baby Isaiah on the road with her, and she's prepared, too. The "Smoke Break" singer had a baby-proof tour bus built so that she and her son could ride comfortably and safely, she reveals to Taste of Country Nights.
“We’ve had one built that accommodates a baby a little better," she explains of her custom-built bus. "In the back there’s my bed, and then on the other wall is a crib that you can take the side panel down. It’s just built in so he’s secure in his bed and he can have his own space and everything. It all slides out so he’ll have plenty of room to roam around."
"We had to get magnetic locking drawers and doors because there are so many cabinets and drawers on a bus, because that’s your storage space. You need them," Underwood shares. "We also have a trash chute. I just had visions of him opening the door and falling down the trash chute. It’s really cool, so you just push a button and everything is locked so you can not open these things.”
The same designed who worked on Underwood's home with Mike Fisher decorate the bus' interior. It kind of matches Isaiah's nursery, which she assures us looks more like a "cool room" than a baby nursery. The 8-month-old is already comfortable in his tour space, since he's a traveling pro.
“We’ve kind of had him on the go since he was born," the proud mom says, "So he’s used to traveling, which is good.”
Knowing her little guy is safe and sound on
his her bus will make it easier for the country music superstar to focus on her show. It's anticipated that she'll tour her new Storyteller album in 2016.
