Carrie's New CD out Tuesday
One of the year’s most anticipated albums is just days away with the Tuesday, November 3rd arrival of Play On, the new album from Carrie Underwood! And with Play On’s first single, “Cowboy Casanova,” already a blockbuster hit, fans are even more excited to scoop up Carrie’s first new record since 2007’s Carnival Ride. Of the 13 songs on Play On, seven were co-written by Carrie — that’s more than either of her earlier albums — and she’s thrilled to be sharing more of herself with songs that she says are “truly coming from my heart more.” She’s also delighted with the reactions she’s gotten from people who’ve heard the album…in part because they seem to be choosing a variety of songs as their favorites. ”I love that,” Carrie says. ”I love it, love it, love it that it is that kind of an album. You’re not listening to the same song. It takes you all over the place…takes you all around the world.”
When you’ve had the kind of success that Carrie’s had — with her first two records together selling more than 10 million albums — it’s understandable that people might ask her about feeling pressure when it comes to making new music. But she says that doing what she loves and being surrounded by good people can make all the difference.
Carrie says that her time on American Idol helped her gain a great perspective on entertaining…that of always “auditioning” for your audience.
