Every time that CBS’ “Late Late Show” host James Corden teams up with a special guest to slay Carpool Karaoke, we laugh super hard.

And, one such time that seriously never gets old was when he joined forces with country star Carrie Underwood.

It all happened on Dec 2, 2015. The “Dirty Laundry” singer took to the passenger seat, while James chauffeured her around Los Angeles. Together, the duo belted out some of Carrie’s biggest hits including “Smoke Break,” “Jesus Take the Wheel” and “Before He Cheats.” They also jammed out to the Wham! classic “Wake Me Up Before You Go Go.”

But, that’s not all. The buddies chatted about Carrie’s hockey player hubby Mike Fisher before strolling into a store brimmed with cowboy boots.

With that much activity going on, you’d think that we’d seen everything from that epic car ride. But, that’s actually not the case. According to a recent interview with “The Sun,” Carrie admitted that there are hours upon hours worth of unseen footage from that hilarious day out on the road.

“It was a lot of fun,” explained Carrie, “We drove around forever – all over LA.”

She continued, “You sing the whole song and they take excerpts of it. There are all these Go Pros on the windshield, so when you stop at a red light people are like, ‘What is going on with that car?’ There was a lot of interaction with pedestrians and other people nearby.”

Oh, how we’d love to get our hands on the remaining video footage!

Lucky for us though, Carrie’s not done making us laugh. In fact, she will soon be taking on another comical role with another funny guy. Carrie will deliver the punch lines with Brad Paisley when they host the 50th anniversary of the CMA Awards for the ninth year in a row. While it won’t be Carpool Karaoke, we can bet that they will be singing some silly songs together.


In addition to fulfilling her hosting duties, Carrie is also up for four awards, including a nod for the highest honor of the night — CMA entertainer of the year. You can catch the 50th Annual CMA Awards when they air live on Wednesday, Nov. 2 on ABC.
