She may be famous for her smash hit "Good Girl" – and her own squeaky-clean image – but sometimes Carrie Underwood just wants to be (a little) bad.
"It's great when you can write a meaningful song that touches people, but sometimes you just wanna have fun and sing a silly song that doesn't reflect on you as a person," says this week's PEOPLE cover girl. "It's just a jam you wanna turn up in your car."
But does the famously composed singer ever really cut loose?

Carrie Underwood has been living on a bus for her sell-out "Blown Away" tour for the better part of eight months now.
But even while on the road she has constant motivation for staying in shape: her hard-bodied husband, NHL star Mike Fisher.
"Even when he's like, 'I'm so out of shape,' he still has a six-pack," she tells PEOPLE in this week's cover story. "Having Mike there – I want to be a hot wife!"
Although she acknowledges that the frequent distance between them can be challenging, the six-time Grammy-winning singer, 30, says she would walk away from her career if it ever started to cause problems between her and Fisher, 32.

Her hubby, Mike Fisher, on the other hand, loves all three decades of her in a sweet Tweet.

Carrie Underwood has come out in favor of marriage equality.
"As a married person myself, I don't know what it's like to be told I can't marry somebody I love, and want to marry," the "Jesus, Take the Wheel" singer – and devout Christian – told Britain's The Independent newspaper.
"I can't imagine how that must feel," she said. "I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love."
Underwood says it's actually her faith that's led her to support gay marriage.
"Above all, God wanted us to love others," the recent CMT award winner said. "It's not about setting rules, or [saying] 'everyone has to be like me.' "

It was a gorgeous, slightly breezy day in Nashville. There was a breakfast buffet stocked with muffins and fruit set up – and the sound of gunfire crackled loudly in the air.
Turns out, Tim McGraw had a specific target in mind.
"I'm going to take out Luke Bryan," the country superstar, and host of the charity Tug McGraw Celebrity Sporting Clay Shootout, said jokingly to PEOPLE Tuesday at the Nashville Gun Club. "He's a Georgia boy, and I'm a Louisiana boy, so I've got an advantage right off."
"But I'm a little rusty, so I'm aiming for Luke's foot," McGraw, slated to hit the road this weekend on his summer tour with Kenny Chesney, continued. "I think if I can take him out, I've got it."
