One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
Carrie Underwood was all smiles at the Nashville Grammy Nominee Party on Tuesday.
The Southern belle is clearly saving the frou-frou gowns for the actual Grammys as she opted for a more laid-back outfit on this occasion.
There's always time to bring out the pageant clothes later!
Her tousled curls were also noticeably shorter than the last time we saw her.
We can't quite put our finger on it, but there's just something about this outfit that feels off.
Not loving it.
