Carrie Underwood knows the Grammy Awards are competitive

At the 2022 Grammy Awards, Underwood won Best Roots Gospel Album for her gospel album My Savior. She was also nominated for Best Country/Duo Group Performance for the song “If I Didn’t Love You” with Jason Aldean.

In an interview with Stage Right Secrets before the 2022 award show took place, Underwood admitted she knows every year of the Grammy Awards is “stiff competition.”


“The thing that makes the Grammys and the nominations so special is that you’re being recognized by your peers. There’s a lot of really stiff competition in all the categories because it covers such a wide range of people. Even within a genre. It’s definitely an honor when you’re nominated,” Underwood said.

Carrie Underwood also thinks it is competitive to perform at the Grammy Awards

Typically, performers at the Grammy Awards are only nominated artists, with the exception of tribute stages or artists given the chance to debut new work. At the 2022 Grammy Awards, Underwood performed her song “Ghost Story.”

Speaking with Stage Right Secrets, Underwood shared that performing at the Grammy Awards is competitive even if an artist is nominated.

“There are so many incredibly talented musical acts in so many different genres of music. Only a select few actually get to perform on the stage. Even if they’re nominated for multiple ones per night,” said Underwood.

The 2023 Grammy Awards will be held on Feb. 5 at the Arena in Los Angeles.
