Pop Culture Country claims Carrie Underwood was recently performing in Cleveland when she apologized to her family for not thanking them during her CMT Artist of the Year speech. She said, “I had more things to say in my acceptance speech. It just went out the window. I didn’t even thank my family. They’re pretty important, in my life and my work. I have them all out on the road with me – my three boys, my husband, and our two little guys. It’s been a good year. I’m gonna say all the things I didn’t say a couple of minutes ago. It’s been a really good year. I had an album about a year ago, last year, and had a baby in January. I went out on the road because I just missed it so much and I missed you guys so much. We love our job, we love what we do. This is what we feel like we were called to do, and made to do, so it feels wrong when we’re not doing it. That has nothing to do with the next song we’re going to play. I just wanted to say all the things I didn’t get to say. This next song, I’ll go ahead and dedicate it to my boys, who I did not thank.”

Lady Antebellum lead singer Hillary Scott tells mlive.com that being a parent has changed the way she looks at the band’s music. “Even songs we’ve already recorded and written in the past have a new meaning. Even ‘Downtown’ I thought I understood that song before, but now, my husband and I need to get creative with finding time to get out, just the two of us, and go on dates, you know, him taking me downtown. Things start to have a new meaning and new importance.”
