Carrie Underwood - Blown Away - Album News

Carrie Underwood is a very busy girl over the past week.  Her new album "Blown Away" was released a couple of weeks ago and she is on her media blitz right now promoting it.  The album debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart selling 267,000 copies according to the numbers that were put out by Nielsen Soundscan.  I also read that this is the best country album seller since Lady Antebellum released their "Own The Night" album this past fall.  "Blown Away" has spent a lot of time in my CD player since its release and I love the album.  The album is such a huge mix of songs and moods included in that.  It really does take you on a journey.  There are a lot of serious songs, fun songs, and others that just make you smile such as "Thank God For Hometowns".  The album starts off with the new hit single of hers "Good Girl".  The song is all about the girl is stuck with a bad man in her life and how she needs to get rid of him.  I think just about everyone is going to be able to relate to that song.  I'm a big fan of "Blown Away" and also "See You Again".  "Two Black Cadillacs" has been a song that has gotten buzz with the story of a man doing wrong and a wife and mistress looking to get even.  "Cupid's Got A Shotgun" is a fun song that has fans enjoying it and having fun with it.  If you haven't picked up the album yet, I highly recommend it.  It is a great album!  It might just be my favorite album of hers yet.  A great collection of various styles of songs.

I tuned in for her IHeartRadio concert recently and it was an amazing show.  I am hoping that they will archive it.  She went all over the board with the songs that she performed with doing some of her older stuff, brand new stuff, and bringing back a cover favorite of hers, "Alone".
