Becoming one of the first country music singers to voice her support of gay marriage, the singer admits she wasn't prepared for the question but doesn't regret her answer.
"Someone asked me a question and I tried to give an honest answer," Carrie told Redbook magazine.
"If someone won't like me because of that, then maybe they were looking for a reason not to like me."
"I was asked a difficult question in the last five minutes of an interview and I answered it the best way I knew how," she explained.
"I do what I do and I love making music and I generally try to stay out of any kind of controversy."
She also talked about her own marriage to professional hockey player Mike Fisher and how she couldn't imagine not being able to marry the person you love.
"As a married person myself, I don't know what it's like to be told I can't marry somebody I love," she said.
"I can't imagine how that must feel. I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love."
She's not worried about any riffs in her marriage either and said it's stronger than ever.
"No one ever has a bad word to say about him. He's one of the good ones. I don't need to check up on him," she told the mag.
"If he goes out to a bar with his friends, [a tabloid] is going to report about it. Same goes for me. Trust is what it is. Either you trust someone or you don't. And I've never trusted anyone more than I trust [Mike]."
