Charlie Worsham’s Sophomore Album Will Be Inspired by His Home State of Mississippi

Image Courtesy Warner Music NashvilleCharlie Worsham is starting to choose which of the 30 songs he's written for his sophomore album will make the final cut. Fans can expect the music of Charlie's home state, Mississippi, to heavily influence the follow up to his 2013 debut, Rubberband.

Instead of trying to keep up with every other male singer on country radio today, Charlie tells The Tennessean, "I want my compass to be my heart and the fact that I grew up in a state that gave us Elvis Presley and B.B. King and Marty Stuart and everybody and their momma. When people dig into my new record, I want them to feel that.”

Fans can catch Charlie Worsham opening Kip Moore's current CMT on Tour: Up in Smoke outing. Go to CharlieWorsham.com for tour dates.

Carrie Underwood’s Christian Baptism Inspired Her Latest Hit, “Something in the Water”

Image Courtesy Arista NashvilleCarrie 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.
