Is there a “Nashville” style rivalry between Taylor Swift and Carrie Underwood?
It was reported late last week that Swift and Underwood “hate each other” and asked Grammy execs to ensure they wouldn’t cross paths at Sunday’s awards show. Speculation grew that such a feud existed when the ladies — who both won Grammys on Sunday — did not interact much at all. In fact, for all the awards shows both country stars attend there are very few photos of them together.
However, Underwood said in on “CBS This Morning" — airing Wednesday — that there is no rivalry (to her knowledge).
“No,” the “Blown Away” singer told Gayle King when asked if she was feuding with the 23-year-old singer. “Not that I know of at least!”
As for how rumors like that get started, Underwood, 29, blames the fact the media can use off-the-record “sources.”
"In every magazine, in pretty much every (sic) newspaper or on gossip TV shows, they can just get away with it by saying 'a source said' or ‘a friend said’ or 'an insider said,'” the “American Idol” alum spilled. “I've read the most ridiculous things about myself when people do that."
In order to perhaps squash the Swift rumors once and for all, Gayle King asked Underwood to name her favorite Swift song.
“My favorite Taylor Swift song, oh my gosh,” smiled Underwood. “I really like 'I Knew You Were Trouble.’ It sounded a lot different for her. I liked the branching out, trying some different sounds."
