    Idols Gone Country-2011 Year End Edition!

    Carrie Underwood began 2011 with a Golden Globe nomination for cowriting “There’s A Place For Us” for The Chronicles Of Narnia: Voyage Of The Dawn Treader with Hillary Lindsey and David Hodges. In February her husband Mike Fisher got traded from the Ottawa Senators to the Nashville Predators, and some cray cray sports fans blamed Carrie. In April she went viral with 2 collaborative performances, an “Undo It”/”Walk This Way” medley with Steven Tyler and “How Great Thou Art” with Vince Gill (which now has over 10.6 million views on Youtube and made Billboard’s The 615 blog and Yahoo’s Our Country blog lists for country music’s top moments of 2011). Carrie did the promotional rounds supporting her debut movie role in the faith-based Soul Surfer which exceeded expectations at the box office, embarked on her first promo tour in Australia, wrote and recorded her 4th album, and promoted and cohosted the CMA Awards for the 4th year in a row. Oh yeah, and she recorded & released duets with Brad Paisley (the #1 country hit and 1.278 million download selling “Remind Me”), Randy Travis (a cover of his hit “Is It Still Over”), and Tony Bennett (a cover of the standard “It Had To Be You”).

    A bunch of new Carrie Underwood cowrites have surfaced recently (credit @Typ021 for finding all of them). She cowrote “I Am A Memory” and “We All Fall Down” with Hillary Lindsey and Troy Verges and “Gone Too Soon” with Hillary Lindsey and Steve McEwan. There’s also “Alabama Who” which Carrie cowrote with Kelley Lovelace and Bobby Hamrick, “Southern Charm” which Carrie cowrote with Steve McEwan and Hillary Lindsey, “Hear A Heartbreak” which Carrie cowrote with Cary Barlowe and Hillary Lindsey, “Pay The Rent” which Carrie cowrote with frequent collaborators Luke Laird and Hillary Lindsey, and “Good For Me”, “Longer Summer”, “I Need Something Strong”, and “Lucky You” all 4 of which Carrie cowrote with Caitlyn Smith and Troy Verges.

    Country songwriter Ashley Gorley’s bio has been updated to reflect that he has:

    Recent cuts by Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood, Lauren Alaina, Jana Kramer

    Carrie is listed as a performer for an Ashley Gorley/Mike Elizondo/Luke Laird cowrite called “Party Girl” and he also cowrote “Amazing Faith” and “That Girl” with Carrie and Luke Laird, as well as “Good Girl” which with frequent Idol collaborator Chris DeStefano and Carrie and “Riverbank Song” with Kelley Lovelace and Carrie.

    Up in 2012: A new single, new album, and tour, everything TBA but Carrie has confirmed that the lead single choice has been narrowed down to 2 choices and that she’s done recording all lead vocals on her album.

    That blog just puts into perspective just how busy Carrie has been this year - her "off" year. We have no right to complain or say that Carrie hasn't been out there doing stuff to keep us entertained in-between albums.
    "Thank you for that ‘Captain Obvious’ sense of humor because you know what, we not only hit the high notes, you forgot to mention we generally hit the ‘right’ notes as well."

    Thanks so much Danielle!
