Underwood admitted that her personal life is relatively seamless, but that adding drama to a song spices it up and engages the listener.

"There are some definite sweeter songs on the album, but I think the ones that are most impactful are the ones that are...the more drama[tic] songs," she said. "It's fun to play a character. It's fun to not be me all the time. I am in a wonderful relationship. I have a great home life...If I had 14 tracks on the album talking about how wonderful my life is...it's boring."

The 29-year-old American Idol winner then discussed how her dramatic lyrics have remained fictitious with a healthy family life. "Neither one of us have a clingy personality," she said of her relationship with her husband, hockey player Mike Fisher. "[We] love each other very much and make the most of all the time that we actually do get to spend together but we're both really independent."
