Underwood added that she doesn't want to rush her creative process.
"We just wrapped up the Storyteller Tour and I feel like my life right now, creatively, is kind of a blank space," she explained. "I'm really excited about that, because you don't know where you're going to go."
"I'm nervous because I want whatever I do next to be amazing," she continued. I'm kind of waiting for lightning to strike and go: 'Okay, it's time to get creative and work on new music!'"prevnext
