Carrie Underwood has no plans to slow down when it comes to new music.

"When I was making this music, I felt like my soul was in such a great place, I wanted to keep making music like the music off of 'My Gift,'" Underwood explained.

The new project comes in response to fans' requests over the years for a gospel album. "My Savior" will arrive "just in time for Easter," she said.

"It's just been such a blessing to make music like this, music that is near and dear to my heart," Underwood added. "I hope you guys enjoy listening to it as much as I loved making it."
