Carrie Underwood Reveals Why Church Leaves Her In Tears
Carrie Underwood is revealing why she reserves her tears for church.
The 35-year-old singer is readying her sixth studio album called Cry Pretty on Sept. 14, but revealed that she does not often shed tears out of frustration or anger. In the September issue of Redbook magazine, Underwood explained why she is often emotional in church.
“I get teary in church a lot because I’m moved by the message — but I never remember to bring tissues,” Underwood said. “Rarely do I cry out of frustration. I cry happy tears maybe more than I cry sad tears.”
The singer and her retired NHL player husband Mike Fisher have been a member of GracePointe Church in Nashville, Tenn. for years. Carrie has been outspoken about her faith for some time, previously telling told Fox News about how her life has revolved around her faith.
“I grew up in church and have a wonderful family that always supported that,” Underwood told Fox in 2011. “I grew up going to church camp and reading my bible and having different faith books and movies in my life.”
Underwood starred in the 2011 film Soul Surfer about teen surfer Bethany Hamilton whose faith helped her overcome losing her arm during a shark attack. When discussing the movie with Fox, the singer explained why it was important to examine faith in the midst of obstacles.
“It’s easy to have faith when things are going great and you’re on top of the world – I’m winning, I’m selling, I’m on tour and this is all great! But this story is about having faith when the chips are down and how to deal with that,” she said. “We can all learn something from Bethany’s story, even when the little things in our lives don’t go so well, we can take a lesson from her and realize how small that problem really is.”
Most recently, Underwood announced that she and her husband are expecting their second child. She took to Instagram Wednesday to make the announcement.
“Ooh baby do we have a bundle of info to share with you,” she captioned the social media video.
