She has six Grammys, 15 million albums sold worldwide, and red carpet style to kill for…so what else could Carrie Underwood want? The chance to play Maria von Trapp in “The Sound of Music LIVE!” which she’ll get when NBC airs a live special of the musical on Thursday, December 5 at 8pm. To celebrate the appearance, Gilt asked Carrie to curate a sale inspired by a few of her favorite things—and give us the inside dish on landing the role of a lifetime.
StyleFile: How did you wind up with the role of Maria?
Carrie Underwood: When I first heard NBC was doing this project, I remember thinking it was an incredibly exciting idea, as nobody does stuff like this. It’s a big production with a lot of work going into one night—live! I’m so excited this opportunity happened to come my way through the producers and NBC, and have so much respect for the project and everyone involved.
