We have but one more day to wait for Carrie Underwood’s fourth album, Blown Away, its release is tomorrow, Tuesday, May first. And Carrie is just as excited as the fans. Carrie told me she loves to keep her fans in suspense, so to speak, when it comes to guessing about what to expect from her, musically speaking, and that’s what makes it all new and exciting for the songstress and hopefully her fans too. Carrie co-wrote eight of the 14 songs on Blown Away, including the smash first single, “Good Girl,” and from the music to the artwork and everything else, Carrie says she always wants each new album to reflect a sense of growth and change.
“I love all kinds of music. I love all influences of music, and I feel like you can listen to my albums, especially Blown Away, and find different influences in different songs. And it’s so much fun to not sing the same song for 14 tracks. (laughs) And it makes putting together a tour so much fun because you think of all the things visually you can do, creatively you can do, the clothes you can wear, different sections you can have with different kinds of songs in them, and I really feel proud in the fact that you don’t know what you’re gonna get from one of my songs. You don’t know, you know, ‘Oh, her next song’s coming out. What on earth is it gonna be like? Is it gonna be some giant ballad? Is it gonna be something that makes me cry? Is it gonna be something angry? Is it gonna be something sweet?’ Like, you just don’t know, and I’m proud of that. I love that. I have fun with that. And that’s what it’s all about. As long as I’m still havin’ fun and loving what I’m doing, I have to think that other people will, too.”
