The ‘Hallelujah’ singer, Carrie Underwood has been oozing Christmas spirit and spirituality still! So much so the singer announced a companion album titled “My Savior” that will accompany her Christmas album “My Gift”. The former album is expected to drop on the 26th March.
Carrie has expressed her spirituality in either explicit ways like in ‘Jesus, Take The Wheel’ or subtly like in ‘See You Again’. Speaking to a source, Underwood revealed her plans to release this “gospel” album later this year is filled with hymns that she “grew up singing in church”.
In Conversation With Carrie
Talking about the singing, Carrie Underwood shared, despite the familiarity, it was a challenging feat to sing the hymns alone. “One thing I noticed with making the Christmas album is; “You have been singing these songs your whole life, but have you ever sang them by yourself?”. I quickly realized that this is going to be tougher than I thought.”, the singer said.
She explained, “Both of those projects were bucket list projects for me, with everything I do, I just want to be positive”. And we had the Christmas album, which was so near and dear to my heart.”
“Last year was a tough year for everybody, and I think just wanting to be positive in this world and sing these songs that bring me so much joy, hopefully, others can be like that as well and these songs can bring others joy”. That goes back with everything that I do … I just want to do positive things.” Underwood added.

Carrie Underwood released a trailer in which she talks about how much she wanted to make this album. “This album is one I have always wanted to make. This is legacy stuff to me.
