Carrie Underwood finds musical inspiration everywhere — it can be a line that pops into her head when she wakes up, or an off-hand comment from one of her kids — but the #1 surprising place she gets ideas is in the shower.

“I feel like I think a lot when I’m in the shower,” she tells Jimmie Allen during a new interview between the two country stars for Entertainment Tonight.

“I feel like I have to stop what I’m doing and grab my phone, all sopping wet, and type something down,” she continues.

“And then you need a new phone,” Jimmie jokes. “Not anymore! They’re kinda waterproof,” Carrie shoots back.

The two artists aren’t just interview buddies and mutual fans — they’re also future tourmates. Jimmie will be the opening act on Carrie’s Diamond & Rhinestones Tour, which launches this October and runs into spring 2023.
