After the 46th Annual Academy of Country Music Awards aired last Sunday, tongues were wagging about the duet of “Undo It” and “Walk This Way” between Carrie Underwood and Steven Tyler. Carrie visited The Tonight Show With Jay Leno recently and told Jay their pairing was actually six months in the making. She said that before she met Steven, his “people” met her “people,” and then they talked on the phone.
“Did you meet at a neutral place, like a Denny’s?” asked Jay.
“It was a back alley, a dark parking lot,” joked Carrie, “very ominous.”
The two rehearsed in top secret and Carrie quickly became an admirer of the rock legend and his showmanship. Watch the clip below to find out which items in Steven’s wardrobe Carrie covets, why she picked a rock song to sing on the ACM Awards — and what she thinks of this season of American Idol!
