Most entertainers have endured countless unpleasant jobs along the way to realizing their dream in the spotlight, however Carrie Underwood was not one of those. In light of the upcoming Labor Day holiday, she tells us: [“I don’t think I’ve ever had a bad job. I’ve had hard jobs. My first job was at a gas station, and that was a lot of fun actually. While I was working at the gas station, I took another job at a hotel down the street. There was nobody else working there. I had one day of training and then the next day I came in, and the lady that had worked there the longest and was training me just didn’t show. So, the second day at work I was now in charge ‘cause I was now the senior member that was working at the hotel. So, I feel like that one was really challenging to figure my way through it, but I did. My best job is definitely what I do now. I really like being on stage. I really like performing for people and just having fun and singing, because that’s what I feel like I was born to do.”] SOUNDCUE (:54 OC: . . . born to do.)
Carrie was nominated for three CMA awards this week, including Entertainer, Female Vocalist and Album of the Year for Cry Pretty. She is also this year's CMA Awards host sans Brad Paisley for the first time, but she will be joined by superstars Reba McEntire and Dolly Parton. The show airs live from Nashville on November 13th on ABC.
