Carrie Underwood's not only known for her flawless vocals and successful music career, but also for her healthy lifestyle choices.
Despite the country star's desire to be as healthy as possible, she admits that during the holidays, she lets some of that go. Although the Oklahoma native doesn't always know where she'll be spending Thanksgiving, she always makes sure to eat her favorite foods every year.
"We don't have too many set-in-stone Thanksgiving traditions," Underwood shares with her record label. "I find myself a lot of time working on or around Thanksgiving or unable to get home or whatever. We try to be together, but sometimes that just doesn't work out."
"We eat. I eat a lot every year on Thanksgiving," she says with a laugh. "I never skip that tradition."
She continues, "But yeah, that's the gist of it, and I'm kind of lucky. I get two Thanksgivings because I also get to celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving with my husband's family, so if I don't hit one, I'll definitely be able to get the other one."
Underwood's had quite the year, giving her plenty to be thankful for, including her husband, Mike Fisher, and her two songs, Isaiah and Jacob. The country star also recently wrapped up her wildly successful "Cry Pretty Tour 360."
"My list of things I'm thankful for is too vast," she explains. "First and foremost, my family. We had a baby earlier this year, which is crazy to think about all of the things that we've done. Starting off this year pregnant, having a baby, and all of the places that he's already seen. I'm thankful for health and safety along all of our travels."
"Of course, I'm thankful for the tour, and I'm thankful to the fans that have come out to see us," she continued. "There's a lot to be thankful for. God has blessed us with some incredible stuff, and hopefully, we've done good with what we've been blessed with."
Underwood recently received an American Music Awards for Favorite Country Album for Cry Pretty and Favorite Female Country Artist.
The country star's latest single, "Drinking Alone," follows up previously released singles from her Cry Pretty record including "Cry Pretty," "Love Wins," and "Southbound."
