When Carrie isn't on the road, she enjoys nothing more than spending time with her husband and children at their home in Nashville.

She admitted in a recent interview on Absolute Radio Country: "I don’t go places…on my own if it is left up to me and my devices, I would just be a little homesteader and just stay home and do nothing.
