In the interview, she discusses her new holiday album, My Gift, traditions around Christmas, supporting women in music and more. She also talks about her holiday playlist which had some surprising picks on it.
The playlist included some more typical choices like Keith Urban or Chris Stapleton, but also included Machine Gun Kelly, In This Moment and rapper 24kGoldn among others.
She particularly notes the track “drunk face” and explains the reason it’s caught her ear so much.
“Well, I think Travis Barker definitely kind of played so much of himself into it, and I was a huge blink-182 fan in High School,” Underwood says to Lowe. “So, you can just hear those moments that if blink was now, and I know that they’re still making music but if they just kind of started and were kind of doing their new thing right now, I feel that’s a lot what it would sound like.”
“I just kind of like the kind of recklessness of some of the lyrics and I have enjoyed that record,” Underwood continues.
