Carrie Underwood to Release “Blown Away” as Next Single

Carrie Underwood has consistently blown fans away with her new hit album, Blown Away, and will be releasing the album’s title track as her next single. The song will officially impact country radio on July 9, but has already become a fan-favorite, due  to Carrie’s performances of the song on national television. It was penned by Josh Kear and Chris Tompkins, who also wrote Underwood’s smash “Before He Cheats.”

Aside from being a favorite amongst fans, “Blown Away” has received rave reviews from critics. Billboard writes, “Mark Bright’s brooding, atmospheric production and Underwood’s bold performance elevate this cinematic tune to an instant classic. When the girl shuts herself in the storm cellar, leaving her alcoholic father passed out on the couch in the path of a twister, you can almost feel the wind.”

Additionally, Carrie’s record label, Arista Nashville, will be promoting the new video in a unique way, by offering country radio the chance to win a Private World Premiere of the “Blown Away” music video. The prize will include a “red carpet” event for the station’s listeners, including an appearance by Underwood.

The video was directed by Randee St. Nicholas and produced by Brandon Bonfiglio. It is sure to wow fans, and the trailer can be viewed at: http://smarturl.it/blownawaytrailer.

Video Picks Of The Week: December 9, 2011

Brad Paisley

Hi friends!

We’re back with our “Video Picks of the Week.”

Music Video

This week’s music video is Brad Paisley’s number one hit, “Letter To Me.” The song was the third single from his 5th Gear album. I love the whole concept of this track and video. The meaning behind a song is what really pulls me in, and Paisley did an excellent job with this one. And no matter how many times I hear it, it can still make me cry. Mark of a great song, right?

 

Live Performance

Fresh off the heels of her ACA wins, the live performance video is Carrie Underwood singing “Before He Cheats” for Clear Channel’s “Stripped” series. The song won Underwood multiple awards and is one of the best-selling country songs of all-time. Her undeniable vocals on top of the stand-out track was a perfect combination.

 

Cover Song

The pick for cover song this week goes to Megan Nicole and Boyce Avenue for their impressive version of Taylor Swift’s “Mean.” They really hit this one out of the park, so make sure you check it out. If you are not familiar with their music, I listed their contact information after the video.
