Carrie Underwood has humble rural roots, but she's long since been launched into super-stardom. Despite the Grammys, multi-platinum albums, and her latest tour, she's still learning how to deal with the fame. Gracing their June cover, Carrie chats with Marie Claire about overcoming anxiety, being super awkward -- and family planning.
"I'm not a mushy person at all. We were never a huggy family. Or a 'Let's talk it out' family. Technically I have siblings, but they are quite a bit older than me -- I was the accident -- so I have the only-child syndrome going on. I'm a little more selfish, a little more independent, a little closed. I do wish I were softer. I wish I were able to form relationships better. But hey, I mean ... I'm not a sociopath."
