Carrie Underwood has opened up about giving her mom Carole a role on her new SiriusXM radio channel. Speaking to radio personality Buzz Brainard at the launch of ‘Carrie’s Country’ on Sunday night, the popular country music singer who recently wowed fans by releasing some surprise new songs explained how she was planning to avoid letting Carole embarrass her live on air.

“I get final approval on what she talks about, just in case!” the 40-year-old stressed. “Because she will tell some stories about me growing up that maybe I don’t want out there. I get to nix it, if I need to!”

Carrie’s mom will be taking part in a special segment called ‘Carole’s Corner’. When asked how she has been preparing for her part in the channel 60 show, the ‘Jesus Take The Wheel’ singer explained: “I’m always making notes or thinking of other artists or other songs that I’m like, I really want this in there.” She also admitted that she’d been discussing lineups “literally right before” the interview.

The Oklahoma-born singer has been having a busy week, as she released six new songs including a new single, ‘Take Me Out’ on Friday. Speaking about this lead track which comes from the deluxe edition of her Denim & Rhinestones album, she told Buzz: “It’s one of those things where it’s, like, if you’ve been in a relationship for a while things can kinda seem a little routine. It’s a lovely little story [saying], ‘let’s go somewhere, let’s do something special’, let’s pretend we are interesting for an evening!”

Announcing ‘Take Me Out’ on June 9, Carrie shared the above video of her dressed to the nines in order to play a performance.
