Interviewing Carrie Underwood

Monday, I talked to pop country star and American Idol winner Carrie Underwood for a piece that ran in today's LIVE section.

(She's performing at the 1st Mariner Arena with Keith Urban next week.) 

I had 10 minutes on the phone with her, but she answered all my questions in seven.

To get ready for the interview, I watched videos of previous interviews with her and read as many stories about her as I could.

Underwood is pretty savvy about speaking to the press.

When I talked to her, she was sweet but also straight and to the point.

Here's a link to the article.
