Carrie Underwood is having a blast on her 'Blown Away' tour.
The country music star thinks the ''weird life'' and odd hours involved in touring the US are worth it as she has a great time hanging out with her backing musicians, but has to take time out from her gruelling schedule to relax every now and again.
Carrie told the Orange County Register: ''We're having a lot of fun when we're out on the road. If we weren't, we wouldn't keep doing it. We all work so hard and have such funny hours. It's such a weird life that we live.
''We live on tour buses and it's just strange, so on days off I'll go take the dogs for a super long walk. I got a massage a couple of days ago and that was nice. But it's really all about recharging the batteries.''
The 29-year-old singer promises fans a very visual and ''cinematic'' experience with the tour and says she put a lot of effort into planning the staging to accompany her brand new tracks as she wants the audience to feel they got their money's worth.
Carrie explained: ''When you listen to the songs, you can see them happening in your head - they're like little movies in song form. I feel like we really got to play off of that when we were putting the tour together, and made it more cinematic and all about telling these really great stories.
''We put great visuals along with it to take people on a ride throughout the show. I really enjoyed putting all of this together and more than anything I want people to feel like they get their money's worth, because money is tight and there are not a lot of extra funds lying around.
''If someone spent that money to come see us play, I just want them to feel like it was so totally worth it.''
