Carrie Underwood Explains Why She Prefers a Fake Christmas Tree


Image Courtesy Arista NashvilleCarrie Underwood's family always had a fake Christmas tree since her sister was allergic to fir trees. Now that she's got her own house, Carrie still puts up a fake tree at Christmas just to keep things simple.

She says, "I don't think there's any kind of tree that's not a pain in the rear to get in and get out and decorate and whatever, but they're pretty."

While she's looking to expand her Christmas decoration collection, Carrie has a pretty good start with her giant fake tree and ornaments. She also has stockings for her two dogs, Ace and Penny, explaining, " They need stockings, too. It's their Christmas, too"

Carrie continues, "[I have] big candle pieces and things like that. Little ceramic Santa things. Pillows. I have lots of pillows that say stuff on 'em. Reindeer-type things. Big, wooden reindeer."

Of course, this will be the last Christmas Carrie and her husband, Mike, spend without their baby boy. He's due in early 2015.

In other Carrie news, her first compilation, Greatest Hits: Decade #1, sold 94,000 copies in its first week to debut at #1 on Billboard's Country Albums chart.

"It was sort of a -- not really a longshot, because we believed in it, but I'm just so thankful that all of my friends out in the radio and all the fans have stepped up to bat for it."

Justin Moore Came Up Empty on His 2014 Hunting Trips


Image Courtesy Valory Music Co.Justin Moore had a great 2014 with his ACM New Artist of the Year win in April and the arrival of his new baby, Rebecca Klein, in July. Justin wasn't so lucky when it came to catching big game on his hunting trips to Colorado and Wisconsin this year.

He says, "I've struck out so far this year, which is a rarity."

Justin is quick to blame his elk hunting fail in Colorado on the weather, though.

"It went from 30 degrees to 70 degrees in a day," Justin explains, "and that's not conducive to seeing a lot of elk."

Another deer hunting trip to Buffalo County, Wisconsin was a bust, too.

Says Justin, "I don't know if I wasn't quiet enough or what. I didn't have any luck there either. So, I've got my work cut out for me."

Justin is off the road spending the holidays with his family in Arkansas. He'll head out with Miranda Lambert on the Certified Platinum tour starting January 15, 2015 in Evansville, Indiana.
