I remember thinking that there would never be a song on a Carrie album I liked more than Oklahoma Wind. I was so bitter about that never being on an album. But I finally found one, and it's Two Black Cadillacs.
The beauty of Carrie Underwood is that when she sings a country song, she sounds country, and when she sings non country songs, her country sound is totally GONE !
I have a feeling the label isn't going to release the 'safe' songs this time around; "Good Girl" was a big departure for Carrie & BA (the rumored second single) continues the pattern. BA is unlike anything Carrie has done, but like GG, it isn't very country. It's dark, dramatic, and different and that's the image the label seems to be going for this time around.
If TBC is a single down the line it probably won't be released for awhile, but I have a feeling we'll see it as a single. Artista also loves to release Carrie's cowritten songs, and since the pattern seems to be continuing AND it's dark and dramatic, it sounds like a strong single contender to me.
I just want them to take risks on these singles even if it means them missing out on number one.
Do you guys think BA or TBC would be able to crossover? Their sound is definitely pop radio friendly but I'm not sure about their subject matter. Pop radio tends to be all lets get drunk and do stupid stuff. Not that much that has substance. It's like 10 Pitbull songs and then they'll throw in an Adele record for good taste. BA's subject matter is definitely country. TBC might have a better chance. IDK.
I think they will release BA and see how it goes. GG has sold great but looks to be slowing on the Country chart. I do think GG will pick the pace back up on the chart with the Album release. If BA does well, I think they might release TBC, but if it doesn't get recieved well I think they will go for traditional safe songs for the rest of the singles.
I kind of don't want Blown Away as a single. :/
I have to agree with all american girl, I am not loving BLOWN AWAY the song that much yet. My favorites are TBC, NETY, WAW, GIG, OWT (this song is just so funny..lol).
I am not crazy about BA bc I feel the chorus and the verses sounds like two seperate songs. Love the subject matter but not loving it yet, GREAT SONG THOU!!!
