CARRIE UNDERWOOD HAPPY TO BE A PART OF THE BREAKTHROUGH MOVIE SOUNDTRACK. – “I was approached about being a part of the Breakthrough movie and having a song in the movie a while back ago, and we’re on the road doing album promo. They sent us the movie to watch ‘cause I definitely wanted to get to see it before I could say yes, I want to be a part of that, and the second it was over, I said, ‘Yes. I want to be a part of this.’ It’s such an inspiring movie. I can’t wait for my son Isaiah to watch it. I can’t wait for my husband to watch it. I just think it something that everybody will be able to relate to in some way or another, and it’s such an inspiring film. I cried my way through it. I was bawling about 10 minutes in [laughs], in a good way. But yeah, I’m just always happy when I can be part of things that can inspire and I was honored that they wanted to use ‘Love Wins’ in the movie.”
