Was "Blown Away" sent to radio today?
It has one add so far by KFRG today spinning it 8 times so far
Yes!!! KFRG is my local radio station. I can't wait to start hearing Blown Away soon.
Also, I don't understand why people make a big deal out of awards. I'd much rather Carrie have a multi-platinum album, plenty of #1 platinum-selling singles, a successful tour, and devoted fans than a couple of awards. Let's not forget that during the Some Hearts era Carrie was sweeping every award show left and right so why are some people whining that Carrie never wins awards and they should give others a chance now. I'm sure the Gretchen Wilson, Faith Hill, Martina McBride fans were just as annoyed with Carrie as some are with Miranda and Taylor right now. It's great being recognized but people make losing a few awards (she still wins many such as two recent CMT awards) into a mountain of problems when it's really just a grain of sand. I bet Carrie is thankful for getting awards from the industry but she's just out there doing what she loves; I hope she never loses that or changes it for the sake of winning a meager award.
IA the successful albums, tours and singles are the most important but it would be nice to see her recognized by her peers particularly. I do think it is time she won FVOTY again. The singles and song nominations will have to play out a little more to see how they compare to the competition. Hopefully she will get a CMA nom after this upcoming tour.
I'm gonna send a not to kfrg to thank them.
And yes, russ. I heard the editted version to. I forgot to tell you guys that.
So it must be the official radio edit.
Didn't Carrie talk in one of her promo interviews that there were a couple of singles that they knew needed to have radio edits? Seems I remember her talking about how the musicians kept playing and it was so cool so they left it but that would be cut for the radio edit.
The end where she's says Blown Away 3 times is my favorite part!!!!!!
