Carrie Underwood shoots down the NRA as she continues her stance on anti-hunting. The National Rifle Association, which has been a huge force in America since 1871, focuses their efforts on rifle marksmanship, police training and hunting. Beyond the debate over gun control, hunting of animals is what Carrie does not like. The farm gal with Oklahoma roots, Carrie Underwood has long been an animal lover.
Carrie totes her pooches around on her tour bus and dotes upon her furry friends. She loves all types of wildlife enough to not see them killed for sport or food. Making a serious decision at age 13, Carrie gave up eating meat and has adhered to a strict vegetarian diet for most of her life. Her discipline and values in what she believes in, has evolved into an even stricter vegan diet of recent years. The country bombshell with the doe-like eyes, reportedly has gone so far as to not eat honey. Honey, of course, is produced by bees, another living creature.
Carrie Underwood, the 2005 American Idol winner, shot to overnight success with her tear jerking ballads and strong vocals. As she rose to stardom, she became more able to have the means to voice her strong backing of The Humane Society of the United States. She has donated huge amounts of time and money to pet and animal causes over the years. Carrie has shot down the likes of the NRA when it comes to the sport of hunting.
Very ironic how somehow she wed a fisherman and avid hunter, along the way. Carrie married Mike Fisher, NHL player for the Nashville Predators in 2010. After a long distance relationship, the couple purchased 354 acres of land near Nashville, where they reside together in between worldwide travels.
The pair developed the land a built a beautiful place to share. It was not long until the NO HUNTING signs went up on the gorgeous countryside they would call home. By compromise, it is said that Underwood has allowed her hubby to have his own hunting room to display deer heads he already had. In return she gets the rest of the house to decorate and her very own shoe room. It must be certain to house only non-leather shoes, or does it?
Being a strict vegan must also mean no fur, feathers, leather shoes, belts or purses. How is a mega millionaire song goddess supposed to spend her money without all the usual accessories? Maybe more make-up? Sure, but only if it is not tested on animals. Underwood in turn has spent her bucks on the $3.2 million dollar mansion and acreage she loves, full of trees, flowers, horses and chipmunks.
Her life of fame and fortune is well deserved. The talented beauty has been the winner of numerous music awards and achievements. It could not be all easy as Carrie has Blown Away all evil food from her life. She is fit and healthy, but not without a price to pay from her fan base, many of whom are hunters. The dilemma has not stopped Carrie in her tracks as she continues to delight crowds where ever she goes. Carrie is strong, she will stay firm and she is still a Good Girl.
