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."

"I'm a happy person," said the country star. "I feel like I want to do good in the world. I want to make people proud of me. I'm a daughter, I'm a wife, I'm a mom to my dogs."

Carrie Underwood spends the bulk of her time on the road or in the studio, so where does she head when she has a day off from touring?
The laundromat, of course.
The country superstar says she insists on doing her own laundry and grocery shopping, even while on the road.
"It makes tour life a little difficult because those are things that I really don't have time to do," Underwood, 29, tells Oprah Winfrey on Oprah's Next Chapter airing Sunday. "So that’s what I do on my days off. We go to the laundromat. I get my quarters, we go to the laundromat and go do our laundry."

Nearly two years into their marriage, the flame is still going strong for Carrie Underwood and Mike Fisher.
"I mean, he's hot!" Underwood, 29, gushed to PEOPLE on Thursday. "He's a hot guy."
The Southern songstress, who still refers to herself and Fisher as "newlyweds," says she cherishes the time when she and her hubby get even "three seconds alone" with each other, which is why she's holding off on children.

Carrie Underwood is very excited that husband Mike Fisher's hockey team is in the NHL playoffs, but she's not quite as enthused about the rituals that come along with the games.
"I'm not looking forward to the playoff beard," she joked to PEOPLE while promoting Olay's new "Beauty by Example" campaign in New York on Thursday. "[The players] all grow out their facial hair during the playoffs."
Continued the country star: "So before they started, I told Mike, 'You need to shave close.' He always looks good with a little stubble, but it's probably going to get out of hand soon."

The country songstress's career has been "go, go, go," she said, adding: "You never really get to stop and smell the roses and really enjoy just being a person."

She knew he was the love of her life. What she didn't know is he's a serious pack rat.
Having not lived together before, Carrie Underwood was in for a bit of a surprise when her hockey-player husband Mike Fisher got traded to Nashville this winter and finally moved in with her.
"He brought all of his crap with him," the country star, 28, says in an interview Thursday on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "Our house became … he's not a hoarder, but he's close, maybe."

Enjoying her married life with hubby Mike Fisher, Carrie Underwood has no plans to have kids anytime soon – and doesn't want to be bothered with speculation that she has a baby on the way.
"I don't want people assuming that I am [pregnant] until I say that I am," the country crooner told PEOPLE on Thursday, while promoting her debut film Soul Surfer in L.A. "We just got married. We haven't been married a year yet. I would want to be married for a little while [before having kids]."
No stranger to paparazzi, Underwood says she has a foolproof way of being photographed without looking like she's sporting a baby bump.
