Carrie Underwood Feeling Her Nerves On Sound Of Music Set

Carrie Underwood says that, despite being a superstar country singer, playing the role of Maria Von Trapp in the live televised performance of The Sound of Music is throwing her for a loop.

"I think being in kind of uncharted territory because nobody's done, or hasn't done in a very long time, what we're doing for The Sound of Music, so I think that will be a bit more nerve-racking," she explained to Taste of Country.

The Oklahoma native adds that the experience has been helped by working with such a great cast, especially the seven kids who play the Von Trapp children:

"I really like being around the kiddos and when we're doing stuff together, they just make me laugh."

The Sound of Music airs live on December 5 at 8PM ET on NBC.
