New sound next album

Album ReleaseAnnouncement0 Comments

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.

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.

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.

See You Again

Single Release0 Comments

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 Release0 Comments

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.
