    Early Review of Blown Away!

    There is a reporter from Nashville that calls into my local radio station every day and she said that she listened to Blown Away and then yesterday she interviewed Carrie. She said after listening to the first 3 tracks, she thought, "Wow! What is going on here?" Of course, first is "Good Girl." Then, "Blown Away," which she said was like "Independence Day" meets "Sweet Dreams" by the Eurythmics. It's about a little girl with her dad passed out drunk on the couch when a storm comes and she goes to the storm cellar. Then she said track 3, "Two Black Cadillacs" is the most unique, thought provoking song she's ever done. She said she couldn't stop thinking about it for days. Apparently it's very dark. She didn't want to give too much away because she didn't want to spoil it for anyone. She said there's a wide range on the album and the song written by Mutt Lange sounds like a Shania song. Also, she said the old sweet Carrie is here too. "Cupid's Got A Shutgun" is very fun. She said the album is very theatric and Carrie is excited to bring that to the tour.

    She said she liked the album and do not skip around on the first listen. She said to listen to it in order. She's got me chomping at the bit to hear "Blown Away" and "Two Black Cadillacs." She couldn't stop talking about them, especially TBC.

    She also said Carrie was very sweet and looked gorgeous.

    Wow, thanks so much for that.
    I don't think a Carrie release has ever gotten this kind of "artistic consideration". I am so proud of her.
    She has finally come into her own as an artist to be considered just as any artist would be.
    She is by no means that pretty blond girl from Idol!
    Enough of that.
    She is an artist who has worked very hard to be entitled to that monacre.
    I am dying to hear this album!!

    This must be that Becca since someone posted comments by her after she got to listen to it the other day and these were her comments so it must be that Nashvillebecca or whatever someone posted it as before. She did a lot of tweets on it so that may be her twitter name, lol.

    Yes, it does sound like @NashvilleBecca. Her name is Becca Walls. She tweeted earlier today that the label recorded the interview yesterday & as soon as she gets the audio, she will be writing more about it. She's also on The Country Vibe

    Um, he'd be like the stupidest man alive if he did! Doesn't he know what the woman can do with a Louisville Slugger?

    A woman called Nashville Kat, calls in to my station every day and gives a run down of the latest. We could check her out. Unfortunitly, I was out today, and didn't hear her.

    I wonder if TBC will be released as a single. It sounds like everyone is really impressed with this song as well as BA!

    Haha, I am so intrigued by "Two Black Cadillacs!" Why would he need to keep a bat by the bed. Maybe the wife kills the husband and the mistress... hence there being two black Cadillacs?

    Wow. Awesome. This makes me even more excited to hear the album. I'm pleased that the early reviews have been positive. I'm looking forward to hearing 'Cupid's Got A Shotgun'. It's great that Brad Paisley worked with Carrie on that track. The whole record sounds like it's going to be surprising and refreshing. I feel it may be Carrie's best album to date.

    13 Days!
