If your looking for a mini-movie in a song I think I’ve found one for you.  Carrie Underwood‘s new video for Blown Away debuts Monday, July 30.  The song’s lyric about a tornado and its affect on a family with troubles makes for a great video.  The vid will be shown on E! Online and the televised E! News.  Look for it at 7 pm.  Here’s what Carrie told Sony music: “This song is such…it’s…you can see everything in your head as the song’s playing. It’s so, so visual, and you don’t have to…it’s a mini-movie in song form. It really is. And your brain fills in all the gaps. ‘Mama was an angel in the ground.’ We don’t know how she got that way. Maybe it was Dad’s fault. I don’t know. You know, he was a bad guy. And then the girl in the story has done nothing wrong. Dad made his own bed, and Dad got drunk, and Dad passed out again. And when the storm’s coming, it’s like she knows. She knows in her heart that this is what’s about to happen. She can feel it. And she…she just leaves him there. And it’s…she’s done nothing wrong, and that’s what…I don’t know…she’s like an unlikely…she’s not a heroine ’cause she hasn’t done anything, but it’s just such a visual song. And you feel bad for her, and then you feel good for her when the song is over that a horrible, negative part of her life is over with, and she can start over because she made it. So it’s just kind of a…I don’t know…just this beautiful movie in song form. It’s dramatic.”
