CARRIE UNDERWOOD was asked about LORETTA LYNN being honored on the “Billboard Women in Music 2015” special, which airs tonight on Lifetime. She gave the usual props, calling her “incredible” and that she “paved the way” for artists like her.
And then she described what happened the first time they met, quote, “She walked by [and] she smacked me on the rear. And I was like, ‘Who just touched my bum?’
“And I turned around and it’s Loretta and it’s like, ‘eh, if there’s one person on this earth who can smack me on the rear it’s her.’ She’s absolutely incredible. We need people like her.”
