Carrie Underwood has a pretty busy fall this year getting ready to play Maria Von Trapp in NBC's live version of the Sound of Music. You will be able to watch that coming up on December 5th. Underwood will even be moving to New York City to help her prepare for her role as that will be all she is focusing on.
"'The Sound of Music' is my entire fall,” she tells Billboard. “I’ll be living in New York for a couple months. It’s all live, so it is going to take a lot of rehearsals. It will be a couple of solid months working on it for one big night."
If you think she will be taking a break after she is done with The Sound of Music, you would be wrong. Underwood is planning on riding the wave of success she is having right into the recording studio to begin work on her fifth album!
"After ['The Sound of Music'] I feel like I can really buckle down and start working on the next album," Underwood says.
What can we expect on her next album? Not even Underwood knows yet.
"I haven’t thought about it much because I don’t know what the next album is going to sound like, but I like just standing there and singing, too. I may take a different approach, a more simple approach on the next one, I don’t know.”
