Carrie Underwood Has Sharp Response For Hater

In a rare response directly aimed at an online hater, this country music superstar spoke her mind – and she said it loud and clear.

Carrie Underwood has had a whirlwind of a year. Just after the CMA Awards in 2017, she slipped and fell outside her Nashville home and underwent wrist surgery while also requiring upwards of 40 stitches in her face.

Beyond just recovering from this injury, Underwood had secretly been battling with the emotion and heartbreak after three miscarriages while she and Mike Fisher tried to have a second child.

She’s now expecting her second child sometime in early 2019, but to say the year was busy is an understatement.

While all of this was happening, Underwood was working on her latest album, Cry Pretty, and simultaneously pulled off a whole new Sunday Night Football campaign – with a new song to go with it.

Co-written by Underwood, the new tune debuted this season – but unlike the songs from the last few years, a good number of fans were not impressed with this new sound.

A recent tweet from Jessica Smetana who is a producer at Sports Illustrated called out Underwood’s new theme song titled “Game On.”

“I love that NBC has been reading everyone’s Collinsworth slide tweets because it means they’ve also been reading all the tweets about how much we hate the new Carrie Underwood song.”

Smetana was referencing some jokes on Twitter that Sunday Night Football commentator Chris Collinsworth always comes into the frame “sliding from the right.” He stunned viewers by coming in from the left side this weekend.

Not too long after the tweet was up, it had made the rounds on social media and caught Underwood’s attention. So she responded to the tweet – and didn’t hold anything back.

“Hey, I know my music isn’t for everyone, but I love what I do and I love being a part of [Sunday Night Football]! I am one lucky lady! I also love women who build other women up…just saying…”

And she followed that up with a message to everyone who had their eyes on this Twitter exchange.

Just a couple of hours later and Smetana had issued a public apology to anyone offended by what she had said, and added that she just missed the old song and wasn’t a fan of the new one. She also had tweeted a reply to Underwood apologizing and saying the same.

What do you think about this Twitter exchange? Obviously, Underwood’s message was strong.
