"As far as like writing about my life, I figure that one's definitely the most (personal). People could probably watch that video and listen to the song and, like, get a glimpse of how I'm feeling right now," Underwood said.

The newlywed got to revisit her marriage memories a month later while filming the wedding-themed "Mama's Song" video, which features her mother, Carole, and new husband.

"Mom's up for anything. She just likes being around us and hanging out and having fun with us. And then Mike, I mean, my whole take on that one was I was like, 'Either you do it, or I'm going to have to hire an actor to come play my husband, which is gonna be weird.' So, he was for it," she said with a laugh.

"It was definitely still an emotional time for my mom 'cause she was kind of just reliving it. I am the baby. I know I'm 27 years old, but to my parents, I'll be forever 6. I think that she was definitely reliving some of the emotional things that were going on with her on the actual wedding day.

The Grammy winner has been acting in more than just music videos this year, appearing on "How I Met Your Mother" and portraying a youth counselor in the upcoming film "Soul Surfer," based on the story of teen surfer Bethany Hamilton, who lost her arm in a shark attack.

"The movie was great. That whole experience was great. It was a lot of fun. I had no idea what I was doing but everybody on set was so great working with me," she said.

"As far as future things, I don't know. I mean, I really try not to have too many goals. I've said this before, but things just have a way of coming up. I'm all about doing what I love, and if something else gets thrown in the mix, then I definitely have an open mind towards it.

"I guess I want to do things to have fun and that I can look back on my life and be proud of and my kids can look back and see what I've done and maybe think their mom's kind of cool."
