Carrie Underwood and her role as Maria in the highly anticipated live airing of “The Sound of Music“ is right around the corner. We all know the girl can sing, but as it stands right now, Carrie says she hasn’t been seeing the best feedback for her role in the musical.
“I get hate tweets and stuff like, ‘You’re not Julie Andrews!’”
She goes on to say, “I know I’m not Julie. Nobody is and I would never pretend that I was … I know my place.”
Some of the tweets are:
Whoever green lighted the Sound of Music with Carrie Underwood should be shot.

The fact that Carrie Underwood is trying to do the sound of music pisses me off so much

I love Carrie Underwood but probably won't be watching the new Sound of Music. Julie Andrews can't be touched.

Ouch! Pretty harsh words for someone and the special hasn’t even aired yet.
Although its been reported that Julie Andrews herself supports Underwood’s role, you can see for yourself if Carrie does the role of Maria any justice by tuning into “The Sound of Music” live TV special on NBC on Dec. 5th at 8PM ET.
Go get ’em, Carrie. No pressure… err, right?
