Something in the Water

Single Release

The artist releasesSomething In The Water, from her album, Greatest Hits: Decade #1.

It’s really kind of a joyous, uplifting song about changing your life for the better and kind of having that ‘a-ha’ moment, to waking up and your life being different from that moment forward.

New sound next album

Album ReleaseAnnouncement

Underwood says her next album will represent a “new version” of herself as she changes the sound of her music.

It’s just a progression, a different sound without losing myself in it. I’m not taking some crazy musical departure from what I’ve done, but it definitely feels different. … It will feel different, look different, sound different.

Underwood does not say when the news songs she is working on will be released.

Somethin’ Bad video

Lambert teams up with Underwood, to work on their recent video, Somethin’ Bad. Although the video doesn’t show Lambert’s uneasiness, she admits that she was nervous about joining forces with her friend.

When she came in the studio I was writing to Blake, I’m in over my head, I don’t know what I’ve done! When you respect someone like that you get so nervous. To hit the notes she hits, I would have to take off running and jump as high as I could.

Blown Away

Single Release

The artist releases her video of the single from the album which shares the same name. Underwood knew in the beginning how she wanted the video portrayed:

When I first heard the song, I just had visions of what I wanted it to be like. And I really wanted it to be a dark Wizard of Oz in 2012 kind of thing.

New face: Carrie Underwood

Underwood joins Almay as a Global Brand Ambassador to represent their full line of products in print and on screen.

Honestly, I could never be associated with a company I didn’t believe in. I love Almay’s positive approach to beauty because it’s so important to celebrate our natural beauty and enhance what makes us unique. I’m also really impressed by their products, which I use in my daily life and when I’m working.

See You Again

Single Release

Underwood releases the official video for the single from her album, Blown Away. The song first debuted on American Idol earlier this month.

See You Again was actually written for Chronicles of Narnia. When they asked me if I would be interested in writing for the movie, I got a couple of writer friends together, Hillary Lindsey and David Hodges. And we just wanted to see what we could come up with. It could have been something awesome, or it could have been nothing. We wrote three amazing songs in those four days that we spent writing.

Two Black Cadillacs

Single Release

Underwood debuts her music video, Two Black Cadillacs. The artist uses the Stephen King classic, Christine as an inspiration for her new video:

I really don’t know why I’ve always loved horror movies, but I know why I’ve always loved Stephen King. My mom was such a huge fan. I guarantee you she’s read everything he’s ever written. I would borrow her books and read her books. This is great reading material for, like, you know, a grade-school-er, right?

Carrie Underwood interview

Seacret interviews Underwood during On Air With Ryan Seacrest and asks her if she would ever be a judge on American Idol. 

I’ve never been asked to be a part of American Idol in that capacity. I don’t know if I could ever judge. I think I would be nice to everybody, even if they really needed to hear the truth. So, I don’t think I would probably make a very good judge.

My first stupid purchase was an accident. I was in Paris and went into one of those big, name-brand, fancy-schmancy designers, and I picked up a sweatshirt. Maybe I didn’t understand the price tag. I’m really bad with numbers. But when I went to check out, that sucker was $2,000.

Good Girl

Single Release

The artist releases, Good Girl, from Blown Away.

We went into the writing session thinking we need to write something that just kicks butt, and Chris DeStefano, I call him a little mad scientist on all of his Pro Tools stuff — he, like, plays every instrument you could possibly think of, and he, like, started makin’ this track, and we started…we just went. It was fast. We wrote it fast, and it’s just fun! It’s upbeat, it’s fun, you stomp your feet, and you can dance to it. It’s got this really rockin’ verse, and this really, like, rockin’ country chorus. So, it’s just a really cool song

Carrie Underwood interview

Seacrest interviews Underwood during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about working on new music for her fans.

I’ve been writing quite a bit. And I’ve been in the studio a little bit. So I probably have about half an album done right now and trying to fill in the gaps and figure out what pieces of the puzzle are missing, but it’s a fun time right now figuring everything out.

Remind Me

Single Release

The artist releases his single, Remind Me, featuring vocals from Underwood, from his album, This Is Country Music. Paisley says that Underwood was his first choice to record the duet with:

I think we’ve become really close, having toured together and become friends and co-hosting the CMAs for several years. We just get along great and sing great together. She’s probably pretty much my first choice to sing with when it comes to a duet with a woman like that. I mean, we just sort of share the same values and get along that well. And also, I just don’t think there’s a better singer than her, so it’s sort of selfish to be able to sing with her and perform. Every take sounded like that [the final recording]

Single Release

The artist releases, Mama’s Song, from her album, Play On. In the song, Underwood thanks her mom for teaching her some important life lessons.

I really am in a good place in my life and I think that does show.

He could have put a twisty-tie on my finger and that would have worked. He is the person that I see making me happy for the rest of our lives, and he is the person I would do anything for to make him happy. I very well may be the luckiest girl in the world.
