Carrie Underwood feels like she’s a late bloomer when it comes to getting married and starting a family, but she’s okay with that. She tells the UK’s Mirror Online, “Where I’m from people are generally married out of high school or college. You’re married at 21 or 22. That’s just the norm. Most of my friends I went to school with are still married and almost all of them have children.” But she says, “I’m glad I didn’t come out of college married. I wanted to date and enjoy myself and figure out who I was. I didn’t have a clue what kind of guy I wanted at 21. I had no idea.” Attending her 10-year high school reunion was a real eye opener for Carrie because she realized she was the last of her friends to have kids, but she’s still not ready. While some women juggle a family and their career, it seems Carrie may not want to try to do both. She says, “Children are definitely in the distant future… I guess Mike and myself are wanting to get everything we want to do out of the way now before we have children… neither one of us are willing to compromise our careers to start a family.”

TIM MCGRAW has only done a few movies . . . but he's already zeroed in on the kind of stuff he'll agree to do. He says, quote, "When it comes to movies, I sort of like the darker side. I like heavy movies."
Sounds like finding the right project is pretty time consuming.
Tim says, quote, "You can read 50 scripts and not find anything that you like. It's much like finding songs. You could listen to thousands of songs and find those magic things."
By the way . . . Remember Tim's new song "Truck Yeah" that he's been performing on tour? Well, he's officially releasing it as a single next Tuesday.
GARY ALLAN admits that his last two albums were pretty heavy, mostly because that's just where his head was. But his next one will have a more positive tone. He tells "Billboard", quote, "It's super rock, super up.
"It seems like a lot of the stuff I was writing this year was just up and hopeful stuff. I'm usually the sad writer, but I think I was able to step away from that this time.
"(But) I'm just in a really good place, mentally, and this just reflects that. Every album I do is just about where I'm at, at the time." Gary says the new album is almost done . . . but there's no word when it will be out.
