Carrie Underwood has been keeping herself busy this year. Just six months after releasing her holiday album, My Gift, she released her first full-length gospel album titled My Savior.

This is not the first time the Grammy winner has released music sharing her faith. In the past, she has put out hot singles like Jesus Take The Wheel, which gave fans an insight into her spirituality. This latest album will mark her first release of music fully dedicated to gospel-inspired music.

In a press interview with TODAY, Carrie talked about how the album features music she grew up singing.

"I sang these songs when I was little and now as an adult, they hold such a higher purpose and deeper meaning for me singing those lyrics," she said. "You never know who is gonna need whatever song it is you're putting out, whether it's something sassy or whether it's something really deep and meaningful."

Carrie even posted a video onto her Instagram sharing her excitement and appreciation for the project saying as a country artist, "We get to sing about our faith and it is welcomed, so I am just so lucky and blessed."

On top of the new album, Carrie also announced that she will be performing a live virtual concert for fans titled My Savior: Live from the Ryman on Easter Sunday.

Carrie posted details about the upcoming performance on her Instagram writing, "We are bringing the #MySavior album to life on Easter Sunday with a live virtual concert from the Mother Church of Country Music, @theryman!"

Fans can catch this free live-streamed performance on Carrie's official Facebook page and it will be available to watch for 48 hours afterwards.
