Underwood and Swift: Are Carrie and Taylor Really Feuding?

Underwood and Swift: is there anything to the feud rumors, or were they devised by the American tabloid press to drum up some excitement ahead of a dull looking Grammy Awards? It's becoming clearer by the day that it may well have been the latter, with Carrie Underwood claiming she knows nothing of any bad blood between herself and the biggest country star in the world. Rumors ahead of the Grammys suggested Swift had made it clear that she didn't intend to sit anywhere near Carrie inside the Staples Center, "Taylor feels Carrie is always rude to her, so she steers clear of her," a source recently told US Weekly.

Underwood addressed the rumors during an interview with Gayle King for a CBS This Morning interview (set to air Wednesday), saying, "No [there's no feud], not that I know of at least." Seemingly in a pleasant mood, Carrie said she was a big fan of Swift, even revealing which song is her favorite. "I really like 'I Knew You Were Trouble.' It sounded a lot different for her. I liked the branching out, trying some different sounds," she told King. Though Underwood's remarks certainly make it less likely that such a feud really exists, we're still to hear from Taylor Swift, who was reported to have ordered the Grammys seating planners to split the pair up in the first place. The question is, why would Underwood be rude to the 'We Are Never, Ever Getting Back Together,' singer? 

Both entertainers had prominent roles at Sunday's Grammy Awards, with Swift opening the show and Underwood delivering perhaps the most memorable performance of the night in a 'digital projection screen dress' while singing Blown Away and Two Black Cadillacs.
