I Love Carrie Underwood’s New Album “Blown Away”
Written by Christi Given | May 11, 2012
Carrie Underwood released her fourth album, “Blown Away,” on May 1! Underwood hopes the album “blows you away.” This album was different for the artist, as she wrote 8 of its 14 songs. Her latest single, “Good Girl,” reached the top 10 on country radio and Underwood just announced her upcoming tour.
According to CNN, the album has reached #1 on the Billboard charts. “Blown Away,” which Underwood just sang on American Idol (where her career was launched), is at the top of Billboard’s hot digital songs chart.
Underwood discusses the making of the album and her passion behind it:
In an interview, Underwood said she enjoyed songwriting and that she went to new levels as a musician and artist with this album.
I’m excited about “Blown Away” because I really think it will blow people away…I felt so great writing for this album. I feel like we really just took it to new places. I feel like I have better stuff than ever and the songs are incredible. There’s something for everybody on this album, and I am very excited (www.opry.com).

I personally love Underwood and think she is one of the few leading role models in the secular music industry. Underwood tends to sing about love, heartbreak and being an overcomer! I love that she isn’t afraid to sing about her faith and what she believes. It is definitely a challenge in the entertainment industry, but in my opinion she is well-balanced and is a light in a dark world.
