    GAC Blown Away Review

    GAC Album Review: Carrie Underwood’s Blown Away | GAC News & Notes

    There’s no escaping Carrie Underwood’s grasp on Blown Away, the country diva’s captivating fourth studio album, due in stores May 1. Like a lightning strike starting a fire, an intense tour-de-force ignites Carrie’s first record since 2009’s double-platinum Play On as the singer/songwriter displays compelling emotional range.

    Yet, even with heavy thematic elements, the songs impressively maintain a pop/crossover shine and accessible sound, courtesy of Carrie’s pristine voice and modern delivery.
    Of course!

    Thanks for posting. I commneted.
    It is so different to have reviewers actually talking about the songs as if they "actually listened to them" for once.
    Hallelujah!
    Blown Away continues to do tjust that!

    I love the review too but am a little annoyed at the constant "pop country" stigma that weaves throughout the review.

    Awesome, awesome review. Only thing I'd change is I'd call it modern or contemporary country instead of pop-country.

    I dont know why the term pop-country is so disliked lol. Whether we like it or not, it is pop-country. There is no denying that on many of the songs

    "Pop-country" just has more of a stigma attached to it than the other terms, which is why Im not fond of it. I think Carrie said in an interview once that she wasn't crazy about the term "pop-country" either.

    Great review! I love the way the writer describes the songs because it makes them come to life for those that haven't yet heard the album.

    I agree, Jessica. I think pop-country has too much negativity attached to it these days, so it just feels better to call many of today's artists contemporary country. The use of the word "pop" in connection with country music seems to scare people, and when they hear it they make assumptions.
    I think the author of this review isn't meaning anything negative though. Actually, he is saying that BA is proving that "pop-country" can be so much more than what people think is possible. I love in the second paragraph where the writer says that TBC "would make even the staunchest traditionalist sit up at attention".
