Carrie Underwood (SXM Channel) OC: …variety going on. :54
“I’m super excited that this is happening. I love music, obviously, but I love listening to music probably more than I love performing it or singing it. It’s one of those things that me getting to kind of sit down and just listen to my favorite songs or listen to different genres of music or get into new artists or whatever, that’s one thing that’s really fun about this channel is just getting to curate the playlists. I’m excited personally just to be able to turn on my own channel and hear music that I like. So, hopefully, fans can enjoy that as well. We’re gonna have a variety of music to listen to, of course, a lot of my songs, a lot of country stuff, new country, some kind of classic country, but also some rock, classic rock and even some new rock we’re gonna slip in there every once in a while. Hopefully, people will like the variety going on.”
