Carrie Underwood is over the moon about her Grammy-Winning album.
Carrie won the award for best roots gospel album at the 64th annual Grammy Awards for her 2021 LP My Savior.
The singer, 39, reflected on her win, calling the project “the greatest” that she has ever taken part in creating.
“I’m going to try not to cry,” Carrie told PEOPLE backstage in the press room at the awards ceremony. “This has been the greatest project that I’ve ever been a part of, been able to do.”
“This is one thing that I’ve wanted to do,” she continued. “Literally, my whole career, I’ve wanted to make this album, and I got to. This just means the world to me.”
“Man, I didn’t last any length of time, did I?” she added, getting emotional speaking of the album.
Carrie had already taken home the award for best roots gospel album for My Savior ahead of Sunday’s Grammys broadcast.
The singer was also nominated in the best country duo/group performance category for her song with Jason Aldean, “If I Didn’t Love You.”
During music’s biggest night, Carrie also hit the stage at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas to perform her latest single, “Ghost Story.”
Just last year, Carrie spoke to the outlet about My Savior, revealing how she recorded the project in 2020 as a companion piece to her Christmas album, My Gift.
She added how the LP is full of hymns that she “grew up singing in church.”
“Both of those projects were bucket list projects for me,” she continued. “With everything I do, I just want to be positive. And we had the Christmas album, which was so near and dear to my heart.”
Sharing that 2020 “was a tough year for everybody,” Carrie said that she just wanted “to be positive in this world and sing these songs that bring me so much joy” so that “others can be like that as well and these songs can bring others joy.”
“That goes back with everything that I do,” the country superstar added. “… I just want to do positive things.”
