Carrie Underwood Had More to Say After Her AMAs Acceptance Speech
Carrie Underwood says she was only able to say half of what she wanted to say during the 2018 American Music Awards on Tuesday night (Oct. 9). So, she finished on social media.
Underwood seemingly blamed the excitement and emotion of the moment in admitting that she made "absolutely no sense" during her speech accepting the Favorite Female Artist — Country award (over Maren Morris and Kelsea Ballerini).
"... but I want you all to know that your support means everything to me! Also, I am beyond honored to be in the company of such talented ladies like @marenmorris and @kelseaballerini to represent the women of country music tonight," the superstar wrote not long after the AMAs wrapped. She also thanked the American Music Awards for letting fans vote.
"That said, I'm off to peel this dress off and cuddle up to my little man! I shall go to bed with a full and happy heart."
Underwood's "little man" is her 3-year-old son, Isaiah. The 2018 AMAs were in Los Angeles. Husband Mike Fisher did not walk the red carpet with the "Love Wins" singer, and it's not clear if he was in town for the show, as well. In addition to winning an award, Underwood performed "Spinning Bottles," a song from her new Cry Pretty album, released last month.
The AMAs appearance and performance continues a busy few months for her. In addition to releasing an album, announcing a tour and hosting the CMA Awards once again on Nov. 14, Underwood is also preparing for the arrival of her second child. She has not said when the baby is due or if it's a boy or girl, although speculation is that she's having a girl based on all the pink she has been wearing.
