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.
