Is Carrie Underwood Plotting a Collaboration with One Direction?

Image Courtesy Chris Hollo/Grand Ole OpryIs Carrie Underwood plotting a collaboration with pop superstars One Direction? The band is managed by Simon Cowell, who was a judge on American Idol when Carrie was crowned the winner in 2005.

Carrie tells U.K.'s Daily Mail, "If One Direction ever wants to go country, I'm here."  She adds, "I think I should get on the phone to Simon."

When asked if she would ever step into Simon's shoes as a judge on a TV singing competition, Carrie says, "I feel like it would be really hard to be honest, and I do think a lot of judges lose face, because I think people really need to hear it like it is. I think I'd be too nice.”

Carrie's country music career is keeping her very busy these days. Her first compilation, Greatest Hits: Decade #1, came out just last week featuring her latest hit, "Something in the Water."
