Carrie Underwood opened up about her marriage and music career in the December issue of Cosmopolitan.

Carrie Underwood isn't planning on writing a breakup ballad anytime soon.

The blond beauty told Cosmopolitan magazine that her marriage is still going strong even as the unions of other celebs fall apart.

“Everyone is getting divorced. They're dropping like flies!” the country star joked in the mag’s December issue.

With several high-profile breakups in the past year — including fellow country stars Blake Shelton and Miranda Lambert — Underwood was happy to note that her relationship to NHL star Mike Fisher continues to be rock solid.

“It helped that we were both established before we were married,” she said about their five-year marriage.

“Neither one of us could be like, 'I didn't know it would be like this!'”

The star also said that just because she often sings about messy relationships, her music doesn't reflect her personal life.

"When I am onstage, I am not Carrie: I am Carrie Underwood," she pointed out.

"Obviously, I would never run off to Vegas and get drunk and marry a guy or trash some guy's car. But everybody has had somebody who's cheated on them or some jerk they dated."

The “American Idol" alum, who is co-hosting the 2015 CMA Awards with Brad Paisley on Wednesday, also shared her gratitude to have found success in the country music genre.

“Women have to work harder to get half the recognition,” she said. “I am one of the lucky ones."

Underwood's latest success involves her new album "Storyteller": It was herfifth album to reach No. 1 on the Top Country Albums chart, and also debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

The December issue of Cosmo hits newsstands Nov. 10.
