Is Carrie Underwood’s Son Isaiah Following In Her Musical Footsteps?
Carrie Underwood’s 5-year-old son Isaiah Fisher could be a future star. The former American Idol winner performed a duet with Isaiah for her recent Christmas album, and it sounds like he loved the experience.
Carrie recently spoke to Parade magazine about the duet, and shared her thoughts about Isaiah possibly following in her footsteps and pursuing music. Read on to find out more.
Carrie Underwood Sings With Son Isaiah
Carrie and her son Isaiah recorded “Little Drummer Boy” for her Christmas album My Gift, released earlier this year. The singer said she initially recorded it alone, but got the idea to include her son.
“And I think everybody thought, oh, yeah, he can just kind of, you know, sing along with you. And in my brain it was a proper duet,” she explained, adding that Isaiah is “who I think of when I sing that song.”
She said Isaiah did “such a great job,” adding, “And to get to have that moment with him and share that with him…and I now have that forever. I have his little voice. It’s going to be with me forever. I get to listen to it whenever I want and that’s such a gift in itself.”
Carrie said Isaiah was “proud” of the song, telling her, “Wow, that’s really cool that I did that.” He also thought it was cool that people can listen to the song on their phones whenever they want.
Would Carrie Support Isaiah Becoming A Singer?
Carrie said she has “no expectations” about Isaiah pursuing a singing career when he gets older. However, it sounds like she would be supportive if he ultimately chose music as his path.
“I feel like my husband [Mike Fisher] and I both kind of having careers in extraordinary avenues, you know, we want him to be his own person for sure,” Carrie said, “but I would support for sure him being musical and that might not be singing, it might be playing something or being on the behind the scenes kind of thing. But whatever his path is, I feel like we’ll support it and just want him to give it his all.”
Carrie is starring in a new concert special called My Gift: A Christmas Special From Carrie Underwood, now available on HBO Max. The special features footage of Carrie and Isaiah recording “Little Drummer Boy” in the studio.
