Enjoying her first pregnancy,â¯Carrie Underwoodâ¯admits to CMT that she's doesn't really know what to get when shopping for the baby. She said, "We went to Babies R Us and we were walking around and I was, like, 'This is just so overwhelming! I just don't want to get the wrong things, you know. I don't know what most of it does. There are, like, 5,000 things to choose from, and I'm like, 'Do we need that?! I don't know!'" While she may be lost at the store, Carrie does say the pregnancy is going well, "I feel really good. I think I've been really lucky in my symptoms, thus far."
Blake Sheltonâ¯talks about his duet with the legendaryâ¯Barbra Streisandâ¯on her new duets album Partners, tellingâ¯Peopleâ¯magazine of getting the phone call to do the song, "It's still shocking to me. I don't know how it came down. I don't know how she knows about me, but I'm just glad. I'm just going with it!" However, when is came time to record the song, Shelton was a bit disappointed. He said, "Ironically enough, she had already done her vocal part and I was really disappointed because when I went to the studio, she wasn't there." Streisand did call Blake later while listening to the song.
On Friday (10/3),â¯Lady Antebellumâ¯was in Fort Meade, Maryland to surprise Carrie Warfel, an army wife and mother of four who tirelessly takes great care of everyone around her for their 7For7 album release week giveaway. Warfel was nominated by her sister, but everyone on the army base says she is a true hero who selflessly puts everyone else's needs before her own, including a family whose daughter has cancer. The trio snuck onto the military base where Warfel's husband is stationed to throw her a surprise party and are treating her to an indulgent day at the spa. On top of that, the trio shocked her even more with a trip for two to the 2015 ACM Awards and a Polaris for her husband.
