Carrie Underwood’s Tornado Alley Drama
In the song Blown Away, Carrie Underwood sings about a make-believe tornado and a fictional home and family, but having grown up in what we call Tornado Alley, in real life Carrie learned you don’t take chances in severe weather. Carrie tells Sony Music Nashville: “I grew up in Oklahoma, so we definitely saw our fair share of tornado warnings, watches, and actual tornadoes. I remember on definitely more than one occasion running out to the cellar, or you know, we had the tornado drills in school and stuff like that. And even living in Tennessee now, it’s like we still deal with that, so I definitely have seen my fair share, and I have seen the destruction that it can cause, not firsthand, thank God, but yeah, I mean, the song itself is a movie. It’s a story. It’s not…hopefully, it’s not real for anybody. I hope they can just, you know, listen to it and take it in context and treat it as the story that it is.” Be sure to catch Carrie when she comes to the Amway Center in Orlando. Carrie incorporates some very cool weather-related visual effects to go along with her current Blown Away Tour.
