    I've been saying along that those are Country songs, which fit very well within a long time line of development. The three people who were involved as co-writers, between them, know a lot more about the complexity and spirit of Country Music than do many passing interviewers. So do people like Dolly, Loretta and Tanya, who pushed the envelope in their time, and see the same quality in Carrie
    (to be fair, though, those interviewers have to say something that gets their interviewee talking, and which they think may interest a general audience)

    The reason some people are reluctant to credit Carrie with being sufficiently Country often boils down to a narrow perception of what Country Music is (usually, in their mind, something that conforms to a formula that's widely featured on Mainstream radio, or used to be so in a previous era they miss). In fact Country Music is many things - a range of continuously developing sub-genres. That's one reason I featured two very different artists in my review (thanks, by the way, to the people who liked it)

    There are several different types of Country Music featured in the songs on "Blown Away" - one of the things that make it a strong and solid Country album. The fact that some industry personnel have so far failed to give that enough recognition sadly does reflect a formulaic tunnel vision. But radio loves Carrie;, she's well regarded in the songwriting community; she's a major force at the Opry (which has a mutual love affair with her); and she is increasingly seen as a valued "public face" for the format. The main problem still lies with some of the industry voters, who have their own favourites, and some preconceived ideas of what constitutes a Nashville approved insider. This Grammy performance though should do her a lot of good.
    First of all, I would like to thank you for all of your insightful posts...I absolutely love each and every one of them. When you tweet things, I retweet a lot of them, including your latest one on Carrie & John Fullbright (actually born in Bearden, OK - but still lives in Okemah, I believe), however Woody Guthrie was born in Okemah. Anyway, I just wanted to thank you for all the insightful information you provide us here at Carrie Fans! <3

    Can anyone help me find a link to the ET Canada interview Carrie did before the Grammys? Tried to watch it on ET Canada and it's saying not available in my location. It's the interview "Carrie Underwood Keeps Humble Pre Grammys." Thanks for any help

    Sorry, my computer recording software is giving me trouble. If I can resolve the issue I can record it for you but it won't be until at least later this week, IF I can get it up and running.
