Carrie Underwood says her tour bus microwave is getting a good workout. Saturday night in a backstage Q&A before her Blown Away concert at Intrust Bank Arena, Carrie told a group of fans that she mostly cooks veggie burgers in the microwave for meals on the road. Of course, Carrie is a vegetarian and has said in the past that she doesn't go out to eat at restaurants while on the road.
During Saturday night's Q&A with Carrie backstage, she talked about the animal shelter she built in her hometown. Carrie's mom, Carol, volunteers there. "She gets up at 4:30 in the morning to volunteer at the shelter," Carrie told us. And, she says they recently made an agreement with an animal shelter in Chicago, IL to send some dogs there. "They adopt shelter animals in Chicago," she said. See more about Carrie's shelter here: http://www.checotahshelter.com/index.html
Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood will begin the rehearsals Monday for Thursday night's CMA Awards. While Brad says the show is pretty much written, Carrie told a small group backstage Saturday night at the Wichita KS concert that she is still getting script rewrites several times a day. The pair always find someone or something from the past year in country music to zero in on. My guess is there is going to have to be something about the new ABC Show, Nashville. How much you wanna bet that Hayden Panettiere shows up playing the part of Carrie?? Or maybe a soap opera spoof of some kind.
Hunter Hayes' first #1 song, Wanted, was written to impress a girl. Hunter told KFDI's Carol Hughes that he wrote the song three or four years ago as a "best effort to tell a girl how I felt," Hunter says, "My goal was to record the song, just make a demo of it. And, to have it playing in the Suburban when we went out that weekend.... and to just play it for her and have her hear it." How did that work out? It didn't. "I decided against it (playing it for the girl) after I wrote the song," Hunter says, "It touched on so many things I wanted to say. It was so deep and so real, I was kind of scared of it for a second there." Hunter said he eventually did play it for the girl and said they are now "best buds." Guess it didn't work out quite like he planned. Watch Carol's interview with Hunter at http://bcove.me/5zqvfs01

I guess Keith Urban is still on American Idol. No news that he actually left the show after a source said he told producers he was fed up with the constant fighting between Mariah Carey and Nicky Minaj. Keith is set to make his debut as an American Idol judge when the show's 12th season premieres January 16, 2013 on Fox.
Rodney Atkins has some advice for parents who are thinking of dressing up their baby for Halloween. Don't waste your money. “You go back to that first Halloween...they don’t know what Halloween is. They have no idea. Best advice for new parents is to take whatever you’re going to go crazy for your kid and put it in their college fund that year. ‘Cause they have no idea. Just give them a box and some paper to play with.”
