Carrie Underwood’s tour bus “stinks”.

The American country music singer rose to fame after winning American Idol in 2005.

She has gone on to have huge success and is currently mid-way through her 100-date Blown Away Tour.

Despite her status Carrie doesn’t have an entourage, choosing to do her own chores while on the road.

“[I do my own laundry and I cook] veggie burgers and quesadillas, mainly – people walk on the tour bus and it stinks,” Carrie revealed to UK magazine Glamour.

In March, Carrie will briefly break her North American tour when she comes to the UK to play London’s O2 Arena.

The 29-year-old star is considering collaborating with British artists in the future.

“I love Jessie J, I think she’s fearless, which is great. [And] Coldplay. Adele, of course. I’m up for anything,” the bubbly blonde continued.

“I want to make country music that everyone can like.”

Carrie hinted she might like to return to American Idol as a judge one day. The hardest part of the role for her would be criticising the budding musicians.

“I’d never say never. I think I could do things in a very constructive way. But those initial auditions, where you have to say no to someone or tell them to stop? I don’t know if I could do that,” she admitted.
