Even though Carrie Underwood is a few years Taylor Swift‘s senior, that hasn’t stopped music critics from lumping the two popular blonde singers into the same mold. Both Underwood and Swift have major crossover power, but that doesn’t mean that they are cut from the same cloth. In fact, Underwood recently told BANG Showbiz that she hates being compared to her 22-year-old fellow country/pop star.
This year, Trisha Yearwood has managed to add another job title to her resume: Cooking show host. The country music star showed off her kitchen skills on the Food Network this spring in a six-episode series called ‘Trisha Yearwood’s Southern Kitchen.’ The first season of the show was just a test run, but as it turns out, cooking fans love the ‘She’s in Love With the Boy’ hitmaker just as much as country music fans — the show has been renewed for a second season.
Sara Evans and her husband, Jay Barker, already have seven kids between them — but that hasn’t kept the happy couple from wanting to add one more little one to their gigantic family.

Ever since teenage country star Scotty McCreery won Season 10 of ‘American Idol,’ he hasn’t stopped giving props to the popular show that gave him his big start in country music.

In case you missed Jennifer Nettles’ good news this week, it’s that she and her husband of seven months, Justin Miller, are expecting their first child.

Don’t expect to catch Carrie Underwood making spelling or grammar errors anytime soon. And if you know anything about the country songstress’ background, that shouldn’t surprise you. The ‘American Idol’ winner graduated magna cum laude from Northeastern State University with a communications degree. Though she’s a singing celeb now, Underwood’s focus was once journalism, so she still has an eye for her first love — good grammar.
