When Carrie Underwood woke up to all the text messages about her Country Music Association Award nomination for entertainer of the year, she was about three hours behind Nashville.

She was in Alaska on Aug. 31 when the nominations were announced. So when everyone else found out, Underwood was still asleep.

“I first got the news about the CMA nominations when I woke up,” Underwood recalls in a new radio interview. “I’d forgotten for that moment, and I woke up to all these text messages and voice messages, saying congratulations. And I was like ‘Congratulations? What is it?’”
