Carrie Underwood Weighs in on ABC’s Nashville
In the middle of her Blown Away Tour, pop/country crossover star Carrie Underwood had time, before performing for last year's American Music Awards, to sit down with Rolling Stone Magazine and share her thoughts on the new Music City drama.
"I feel like the show represents our town really well."
Though the Grammy award-winning Underwood enjoys watching the show, "because I'm [Underwood] like, 'I eat there,'" she has reservations with the show's tendency to go a little overboard with the drama, at least relative to her experiences.

I hope people don't think it's all backstabbing and everybody sleeping with everybody else. That's really not [the case], at least to my knowledge," Underwood tells Rolling Stone. "People [in her world] really are pretty open and friendly and normal."
Underwood is justified in thinking the show takes a little too much dramatic license exaggerating the sex, the lies, and the dirty politics.
Critics have compared the show to a mix between a less realistic "Treme" (HBO's portrayal of post-Katrina New Orleans culture) and the pop, more importantly iTunes-friendly, sensibilities of Glee (we all know what Glee is).
Who knows maybe Underwood will even guest star on the show? When asked about the prospect of representing a bona fide "lady of country," Underwood tells Rolling Stone, "[It's] something really different that would be out of my comfort zone -- a really wonderful thing to put on my 'I did that' list."
You'll have plenty of chances to catch Underwood on her international Blown Away Tour, recently adding some 40 extra dates to the Spring leg.
You can see new episodes of "Nashville" Wednesdays (10 p.m. ET) on ABC.
