I just had to write this post.. Carrie Underwood is my favourite artist, I love her. I listen to her music every day without fail, usually when I’m doing my hair and make up and getting ready for the day, and I know all the lyrics to pretty much all her songs!
If you aren’t familiar with who she is though, I’ll give you the basics; she’s an American singer and song writer, she won the fourth season of American idol in 2005, her genre of music is known to be mainly country with her most famous song probably being “before he cheats”.
My favourite Carrie Underwood album has to be Storyteller though, with my favourite tracks being, heartbeat, like I’ll never love you again and Clock don’t stop. If you fancy giving the storyteller album a listen to, you can find it on Spotify and the album tracks are:
1. Renegade Runaway
2. Dirty Laundry
3. Church Bells
5. Smoke Break
6. Choctaw County Affair
7. Like I’ll Never Love You Again
11. Clock Don’t Stop
12. The Girl You Think I Am
14. What I Never Knew I Always Wanted
Carrie Underwood recently dropped her latest album a few days ago which is called Cry Pretty. I waited what felt like FOREVER for this album.. I so badly wanted it to be as good if not better than Storyteller. I listened to every song on the album a couple of times to see if I could grow to really love any of them.. and I have to say, I’m majorly disappointed. It doesn’t feel country, it doesn’t feel as meaningful and uplifting as her previous album. It was really hard for me to even pick a couple of songs on this album that I can say I truly love. But the ones I like are End up with you, Backsliding and Kingdom. If you haven’t already checked out the album, you can find it again on Spotify, and the track list is:
1. Cry Pretty
2. Ghosts On The Stereo
6. The Song That We Used To Make Love To
7. Drinking alone
8. The Bullet
9. Spinning Bottles
10. Love Wins
11. End Up With You
13. The Champion
In an Instagram live that Carrie did on the day of her album release, she said her favourite track on the album is Cry Pretty. It’s a good song, but again, doesn’t feel very country to me, which is a shame because that’s why I love her so much I think.
Have you listened to the new album yet? What’s your favourite track? Do you like any of her old songs? What are they?
Here’s to hoping she’ll tour the UK after she’s had her baby and I get the best seats in the house.
