Carrie Underwood is always a breath of fresh air.

On Wednesday, the Church Bells singer was honored at the CMT Artists of the Year Awards in Nashville, Tennessee — and she stopped by to chat with ET about her many accomplishments and what's to come in the future, both personally and professionally.

As you know, the 33-year-old welcomed baby boy Isaiah with husband Mike Fisher back in February 2015, and the country superstar hit the road for her Storyteller tour earlier this year.

"Remember Kaitlyn — we all thought she was gonna go with Nick, and she picked Shawn on The Bachelorette. Jennifer Hudson lost on American Idol — our fellow Americans voted for Fantasia! I'm telling you, sh*t happens in America. They thought Jennifer Hudson had it in the bag. Don't let Fantasia win on Nov. 8!"

EXCLUSIVE! Hillary Clinton Proves We're Stronger Together With Campaign Theme Music Video From American Idol Finalist Jessica Sanchez!

| Filed under: Exclusives!Music MinutePolitikAmerican IdolHillary ClintonDuetsAd Campaigns

This is some sound advice!

With Donald Trump currently focusing all of his energy on handling blow back from his "Grab them by the p*ssy" leak and subsequent sexism scandals, that leaves Hillary Clinton all alone on the campaign trail.

Luckily, unlike her opponent, politics is actually her job… which means she's perfectly fine moving towards November 8 out in front!

But because there are somehow still undecided voters at this point in time, Hillary just made a move to ensure the young vote by teaming up with American Idol Season 11 finalist Jessica Sanchez!

While we had already been treated to HRC's campaign song Stronger Together itself — it's currently No. 20 on the Billboard Hot 100, btw! — we're honored to exclusively be premiering the accompanying video for you today (complete with DNC balloons, of course!).

And with a team like Bruce Roberts, Carole Bayer Sager, Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds, and Tracy Young behind them… Jessica is using her expertise as a runner-up to ensure that Hillary's a winner!

But can we say it's really the most inspirational campaign song in history??

…Yes we can.

Ch-ch-check out Jessica Sanchez's Stronger Together music video (above)!!!

From sold-out tours, co-hosting the CMA Awards, countless charity endeavors, and being a devoted wife and mother — there's no doubt the 33-year-old songstress has a lot on her plate.

But somehow throughout all of her success, the Church Bells singer has remained her true, humble self.

As Redbook's November cover star, the American Idol alum opened up about how her onstage persona differs from the "real Carrie":
