Stunning country songstress Carrie Underwood has five tour necessities. These are items she always takes with her when she's on the road. But what are they and why are they so important?
The first, and perhaps the most crucial necessity, are her beloved dogs. Carrie won't leave home without them, no matter how long or short the tour. She says that Ace and Penny offer her the touch of home she needs to keep herself grounded and happy.
Next is food. Underwood doesn't like eating out because she can't control the food's content. That's why she prefers cooking her own meals. That requires she have all the right ingredients at her fingertips. She brings her own cooking utensils and goes grocery shopping during breaks.
Carrie doesn't need beauty consultants on the road. She does her makeup and hair herself. However, she does need a bit of physical motivation. So instead of hair and makeup specialists, she uses a personal trainer. That way she doesn't have to worry about getting out of shape or feeling listless.
DVDs are also a must. Underwood enjoys movies but she also likes watching her favorite television series too. That's why she keeps a well-stocked library of both mediums on hand. They help while away those stray hours between gigs.
Lastly, Carrie always buys a new down comforter for her bed. She says the slight luxury helps her sleep when she's not at home. The down keeps the bed cozy and comfy.
Unlike a lot of stars who demand lots of luxuries on the road, Carrie Underwood keeps hers reasonable and provides a lot of it herself. The Oklahoma girl has class.
