Carrie Underwood has been inducted into the Oklahoma Hall of Fame just weeks ahead of the CMT Music Awards, where the country legend is nominated in three categories.
Carrie Underwood now officially joins the likes of Gill, Toby Keith, Reba McEntire, and Blake Shelton, as the country singer has been announced to be part of the 90th class of honorees of the Oklahoma Hall of Fame.
Carrie Underwood’s induction into the Hall of Fame will take place on November 16 in Oklahoma City in a ceremony hosted by Vince Gill and Kristin Chenoweth, according to CMT News.
Carrie Underwood and the rest of the Hall of Fame honorees’ portraits will be unveiled at the Gaylord-Pickens Museum. The portraits will include biographies and photos through interactive exhibits.
Carrie Underwood is not the only one being inducted into the Hall of Fame this year, as Justice Tom Colbert, Congressman Tom Cole, Olympic gold medalist Shannon Miller, and others are also in the list of honorees.
While Carrie Underwood is certainly looking forward to being inducted into the Hall of Fame, the country singer is facing a stressful couple of weeks ahead of the 2017 CMT Music Awards, where Underwood is nominated for three awards.
Carrie Underwood and five other artists scored three nominations each, which is the most nods any act scored this year, so the competition will be rather tough.
Carrie Underwood is nominated for Video of the Year, Female Video of the Year, and Collaborative Video of the Year at the June 7 awards ceremony, according to Forbes.
The Hall of Fame honoree is up against Florida Georgia Line, Keith Urban, Kelsea Ballerini, Luke Bryan, and Thomas Rhett in the race for the most awards this year, as all the six acts have scored three nominations each.
And considering that there are only eight categories at the CMT Music Awards, being nominated for three is actually a big deal.
Carrie Underwood apparently likes to keep her life stressful, or else she wouldn’t have married Nashville Predators’ Mike Fisher. Besides nailbiting during awards shows, the Hall of Fame honoree also has to stress over her husband playing NHL games, according to Radio.
This was the case last week when Fisher’s team took a series lead after beating the Anaheim Ducks 2-1 at NHL Conference Finals.
But Carrie Underwood wasn’t the only one cheering on Fisher, as their 2-year-old son Isaiah was also there in the audience shouting loudly to encourage his daddy to win the game.
Though Isaiah did have something to distract himself from stressing too much, as the 2-year-old was painting. And Carrie Underwood now reveals what Isaiah was working on during the game.
The Hall of Fame honoree took to Instagram to share the #abstract #toddlerart Isaiah painted during the game. While the painting may seem like it makes no sense from the first glance at it, it actually does have a lot of sense and it’s actually a masterpiece.
When Carrie Underwood asked Isaiah what was that he had painted, the 2-year-old replied that it was none other than Elmo.
But painting Elmo wasn’t the only thing Fisher’s cheer team is up to during Predators’ games, as Carrie Underwood took the stage to perform the national anthem at her husband’s NFL playoff game on May 6.
Wearing a Predators shirt with her husband Fisher’s number on it, Carrie Underwood surprised NHL fans when she joined country legend Luke Bryant at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena.
Carrie Underwood and Bryan performed that night “Play It Again” as well as 1987 hit “I Told You So.” The next day, the Hall of Fame honoree took to Instagram to thank fellow country singer for the unexpected duet.
