In an interview with Country Living, 37-year-old Carrie Underwood touched upon her desire to put down permanent roots and her dream home requirements. The “Forever Home” is being planned on a stunning 400-acre stretch near Nashville. Carrie Underwood and her husband, Mike Fisher, have discussed plans with magazines and also gave Oprah a tour of their property and planted an Oak tree dedicated to Oprah.
Mike and Carrie gave Oprah a full tour of their property and discussed plans for raising horses and cattle on the property. Oprah’s tree is planted on a high ridge where the couple plans to have a picnic area.
“My husband, Mike [Fisher], and I are designing our ‘forever’ home,” she tells the Country Living magazine in an article called “9 Things Carrie Underwood Can’t Live Without.” “My must-haves are a wood-burning fireplace, a porch swing and rocking chairs,” the songstress adds. Since the superstar insists on taking care of her own laundry— even while on tour— we’re sure a tricked out laundry room will also make the wish list.
Besides the couple’s darling one-year-old son, Isaiah, the family’s housing plans must also keep their pets in mind, “I have two dogs — Ace and Penny Jean — but I constantly consider renaming them Bad and Worse,” she quipped. “I can’t imagine life without them, though.”
During the upbeat piece, the “Church Bells” singer discusses her habit of collecting antique trunks, her love of fresh produce stands, and her favorite place to relax— her parents’ home in Checotah, Oklahoma. Check out the full interview in Country Living‘s latest issue, available now.
