On how he deals with a stressful career, he says,
“The bigger issue is to go to your faith. What works for me is to know that all of this is preordained. I am a Christian. I believe God has a plan. I believe he is not going to leave us hanging. As a man, in our society, I don’t have all the answers. Being able to turn matters over to a higher power works for me.”
Underwood goes on to say,
“You know what? I’ll understand what I can understand, and then God will give me the direction to go where I need to go from there.”
