Carrie Underwood may be a country music superstar, but she isn’t afraid to get her hands dirty. After wrapping up her Denim and Rhinestones tour, the 40-year-old singer is turning her attention toward her 400-acre farm outside Nashville where she boasts greenhouses, raised beds and even chicken coops to help feed her family healthily. Recently Epic Gardening provided services to outfit Carrie’s greenhouse space to show just how efficiently Carrie uses this space within.
She explains in the video that she wants to better connect with where her food comes from and grow some of it herself, rather than purchasing produce from stores. To achieve this goal, she and the experts unpack and set up their greenhouse before beginning its layout: installing raised bed kits made out of wooden frames covered with plastic tarps to prevent dirt spillage onto the ground, as well as high beds toward the center and lower beds on each end of their greenhouse.
Starting off strong with their project, Carrie and her gardening experts discuss other parts of her yard including an inviting chicken coop which almost looks like a mini house and an unexpected “accidental rooster”. All before discussing greenhouse options.
She notes that an elevated coop is beneficial in keeping it dry – an important consideration as wet coops can create breeding grounds for respiratory illness in her hens. She further states that by placing it on a hill, her coop helps drain off water more easily.
Carrie seems pleased with their progress so far and was impressed by all of the team’s hard work, looking forward to adding her personal touches on the greenhouse as well as having more space available to her to grow produce for herself and her family.
Carrie made headlines earlier this year when she gave an amazing performance of her new song, “The Bullet.” Addicted to country music, Runaway June and Maddie and Tae performed an engaging medley of women of country songs by Dolly Parton (“9 to 5,” Loretta Lynn (“Coal Miner’s Daughter,” and Tammy Wynette (“Stand By Your Man”). Subtle drama was added by her performance of an apocalyptic ballad with images of real-world memorials and vigils on silk screens above the stage, creating one of her most unforgettable performances and demonstrating she is a powerhouse vocalist with plenty of range. Additionally, she added an impressive acrobatic routine and delivered several flourishes before concluding her performance by singing glory notes at full volume throughout. Watch below.
