Carrie Underwood sings about the transformation of being baptized as a Christian in her new single, “Something in the Water.” Looking back on her own baptism a child in Oklahoma, Carrie tells Billboard, “It really was just kind of a wonderful day.”
She says, “I wanted to do that. I had gotten saved, and that was the next step, you know. That was kind of what we had always been taught. I just remember being so proud that day.”
Carrie and her studio band and background vocalists certainly felt the spirit when they recorded the song a few months back.
Says Carrie, “My manager has a video on her phone of me bouncing in the room because I just couldn’t contain myself. We were going to church in the studio.”
“Something in the Water” is included on Carrie’s new compilation, Greatest Hits: Decade #1, due out December 9.
