Carrie Underwood is in London ahead of her Royal Albert Hall performance on June 21 and she stopped by BBC breakfast to perform “Blown Away” and chat with the hosts.
Near the end of the interview, in which she spoke about her successful career as a country singer and her latest album, Blown Away, she addressed her recentsupport of gay marriage and the resulting backlash.
“I’m pro non-judgement,” she says, “I’m pro loving people. That’s kind of what I’m all about.”
She remarked on how she generally stays as far away from politics as possible. “I just want to sing,” she adds, “It’s scary to have a platform and have people listening to you,” she laughed, “because at some point, you are going to say something that some people consider to be not so right.”

Its great to see carrie sticking to her Guns . I like i said earlier country music is a very conservative genre so this is really a big deal for her to speak up about something she feels so strongly about . It the power of Jus tone high profile person’s opinions about and issue is needed in the collective bowl that will maybe eventually shit public opinion on the issue .
