Country music star and former "American Idol" winner Carrie Underwood has just announced her latest tour schedule, revealing who she will be taking on the road with her.
Underwood's tour is set to kick off Sept. 14 in Manchester, New Hampshire with singer and guitarist Hunter Hayes serving as the opening act. Before the country singer can head on tour however, there are a few things that she has said she can't live without.
One will have to assume that Underwood means to bring her husband, Mike Fisher, with her on tour as well, although the pro hockey player didn't quite make the list. The star's two dogs however, have come out on top, according to ABC News.
"They're with me everywhere," she told ABC. "I couldn't imagine not having that little piece of home with me everywhere I go."
Also making an unexpected appearance on her top-five list was Underwood's personal trainer. In past interviews Underwood has revealed that her personal trainer is none other than Tony Greco, who she shares with a number of pro hockey players as well including Claude Giroux and Dan Boyle.
To keep her slim size two firgure- she was originally a size six when competing on American Idol- the star has revealed that she has to keep up with a strict healthy diet.
"Genetics are not exactly on my side," Underwood said in a January interview with an Ottawa radio. "I do not eat catering. I have a refrigerator on the bus and when we're in a decent town that has a decent grocery store, I just go and stock up. My off days on the road are spent doing laundry and buying groceries."
However, eating healthy doesn't seem to be enough for the country star, which is why she also brings her personal trainer on tour.
"I do my own hair and make-up on tour, so I feel like I … deserve to have someone motivating me, helping me be the best that I can be physically so I can get through the rigorous tour," Underwood told ABC.
