While Paisley says he totally expects Underwood to be in a “hide and sweat” before the show is over, Underwood says she is choosing a lot of spandex.
“It’s great because most designers do not wear maternity clothes,” she says. “So I get into things that are not meant to go on [my] body, but I’m sorry when I give them back and they’re all out. Sorry, designers. We’re pulling many archive things they no longer need, and I have no idea what to end. We do not force anything – except for zipper. “

“We see, says Paisley.” In a masculine fashion we have turned around this corner where they tried to try things. But now it almost gave people up. It’s just flat skirts and skinny jeans and anything. You know what I mean? “
In addition to planning their wardrobes, Underwood – nominated for two CMA- Awards, including the female vocalist of the year – says Paisley has made the most of the writing for his joke.

” In July, I’m beginning to open my eyes and ears to what happens in the universe specifically for CMA purposes, “she continues.” Much of it will fall by the way as no-one talks about it anymore. Everyone goes on to the new one, the next, but it’s always good to keep your eyes and ears open. “
Paisley also revealed that Underwood was among those who betrayed drama that went down when Cardi B tried to fight Nicki Minaj at a New York Fashion Week Party – and she wrote about it.

When the show time comes Wednesday night, Paisley wants fans to be ready for material that is “100 percent fun”.  “I think it’s an important thing to do right now,” he says. “The election is over. We all see now, I think, for something where we can see some music and feel good.”
