Oklahoma country music superstar Carrie Underwood talks about her role as Maria von Trapp in NBC’s live television production of “The Sound of Music” in the cover story of the Dec. 9 issue of Country Weekly magazine, now on newsstands.

The story covers what’s going to be different from the movie and why Underwood’s mother loves the Rodgers and Hammerstein musical so much.

Plus, the Checotah native shares a few of her favorite things, in honor of the famous “Sound of Music” song “My Favorite Things.”
