The country star shed tears as she spoke about the late pop great, who passed away in 2016 at the age of 53, in a video interview clip that was recently uploaded to Carrie Underwood Instagram account.

“There’s so much about George Michael’s voice and music that I feel like is responsible for so much of me as an artist,” Carrie Underwood remarked in the tape, which was allegedly recorded during the ceremony that took place in November of this past year.  

I was fortunate enough to get the opportunity to meet George while he was on tour. 

I was quite timid because I had the impression that if I started talking, I would end up crying on him, and I didn’t want to do that.

Her words echoed with a poignant mix of longing and regret, painted against the backdrop of unfulfilled aspirations.
