Great review that is so cool that Carrie is getting some promos in the Philippines
Ann, you should post this over at the FC. I'm sure Carrie would love to see this as she doesn't realize how many fans she has all over the world.
Carrie applied her KEY concepts to the fundamental human issues of "HER OWN SELF-IDENTITY and HER OWN SELF-RENEWAL". "Who am I? What do I stand for? What is my purpose? HOW DO I MAINTAIN MY SENSE OF "SELF" in this "ever changing country music environment" (what "Carrieflatssfan" was always trying to point out in her post). How do I infuse meaning into MY LIFE, MY CAREER and COUNTRY MUSIC COMMUNITY? HOW DO I REMAIN RENEWED, ENGAGED and STIMULATED? ...... These questions were answered by Carrie in the KEY CONCEPTS that she is using as a COUNTRY MUSIC SUPERSTAR. ....... The only TRULY RELIABLE SOURCE OF STABILITY is a strong INNER CORE and the "WILLINGNESS TO CHANGE AND PROGRESS AND *ADAPT EVERYTHING EXCEPT THAT CORE*" - CARRIE's PRIORITY IS TO BETTER UNDERSTAND "WHO SHE IS", "than", "WHERE SHE IS GOING" - for where is CARRIE'S MUSIC IS GOING "will almost certainly change".
Yay Ann!! Carrie needs to see alot of the things you post!!! (AS long as they are positive!) LOL!!!
Awesome review about an awesome album. After all this time that the album has been out I'm still as fascinated as the first listening. You just keep "hearing" new things from it. The songs are masterpieces. This reviewer loved the songs I love the most, though I understand why they aren't as popular with others. We always tend to grab hold of the ones that talk to us the most and its okay that others favor other songs more as there isn't a bad song on the cd. I guess thats why I won't be disappointed by what turns out to be the singles. It will be fun to watch this cd evolve as the singles are put out there. Carrie has always worked hard to put out a cd that would have songs for everyone - she never disappoints. This review shows her popuilarity just keeps spreading! Awesome! Thanks for posting Ann!
wow, i should start reading the newspaper more. i wonder why my mom didn't tell me about this though, she usually tells me when she sees something carrie-related. but that was a great article!
a very elegant review!
I also discussed this with my Filipino-American friend, who was ONCE a die-hard FAN of "Mega-star Sharon Cuneta" of the Philippines. He said, "Baby A. Gil" is "ALSO", ONE of the "SUPERVISING producers of music albums" of "VIVA Records (Philippines)", the largest and the most powerful recording company in the Philippines - this is a SUBSIDIARY of "VIVA Entertainment Group", the largest and the most powerful ENTERTAINMENT company that produces films, television shows, music records and home videos. They also export their products to the United States. They handle the career of "Mega-star Sharon Cuneta" FOR "THIRTY-FIVE YEARS", NOW, since they launched her first single "MR. DJ" in 1978. They also handle the career of another NEW "Mega-star Sarah Geronimo" and many stars in the Philippines. "Vic Del Rosario, Jr." is the CEO and Chairman of the Board of Directors of "VIVA Entertainment Group, Inc.". So, "Baby A. Gil" is like "Ann Edelblute" and "Vic Del Rosario, Jr." is like "Simon Fuller" of "XIX, Inc./19 Entertainment Limited, Inc." IT IS INDEED "A GREAT HONOR" that Carrie is being reviewed and spared some of the time by "Baby A. Gil" because Baby has MULTIPLE JOBS and a WORKAHOLIC in the Philippine Entertainment Industry (My Filipino-American friend told me.). KUDOS to Carrie!!!
Ann you did excellent, nice job dear, article is really well written i am impressed.
I agree!!! ALSO, Ann, is a GREAT RESEARCHER. I am really interested in making a research, IF, "Baby A. Gil" is ACTIVELY INVOLVED in handling the career of "Mega-star Sharon Cuneta of the Philippines for THIRTY-FIVE YEARS" and another "NEW Mega-star Sarah Geronimo". OR, is it just "Vic Del Rosario, Jr.", the CEO. AND, why "Baby A. Gil" became interested in REVIEWING Carrie's "Blown Away" album - THE FACT that the PHILIPPINES is a MAINSTREAM POP/ROCK "MUSIC MARKET". Very interesting, to know. She wrote an article about "Elvis Presley", though.
I love this srticle. One of the reasons I enjoyed it so is that the writer hit dead on my opinions of most of the songs including WAY. Really well written and you can see the writer actually thought about Carrie's growth. Probably my favorite so far.Thanks for finding it. It really made my day as things have been on a real downer for me, that was a nice pick me up. Does not make up for the fact that my disability check went from supporting myself and two grandkids to also having my grandson's father under my roof with no job.it was supposed to be about a week and has been three months.....can not tell you how much I want my house back to me and the kiids. It is one thing to be poor, but to go a step down from that is a downer. This put a smile on my face and for the rest, I have faith that I will survive
I read from Mike Fisher's book, "Defender Of Faith", that THROUGH THE STORM - GOD remains the ANCHOR in his LIFE and Mike HAS PROVEN that the BLESSINGS WILL COME - when the RIGHT TIME COMES. Mike Fisher is a man, WHO NEVER GAVE UP A DREAM, despite of being SERIOUSLY INJURED WHEN HE WAS NINETEEN YEARS OLD while playing at the NHL. (And once doubted that he will be able to play again at the NHL.). He puts his FAITH in CHRIST FIRST and has demonstrated his LOVE FOR GOD any time at any circumstances. During an interview, Mike said that his mother told him, WHILE her mother was READING THE BIBLE, that GOD will use it for "GOOD THINGS". Mike, at the age of thirty-two, NOW, has a lot TO BE PROUD OF as a VETERAN of the National Hockey League FOR THIRTEEN YEARS and as a HUSBAND OF OUR BELOVED "Carrie Underwood".
Mike Fisher 12:12, Romans 12:12 - "Be glad for all God is planning for you. Be patient in trouble, and always be prayerful." - Rejoice in HOPE, endure in AFFLICTION, persevere in PRAYER. Believe me, this has BEEN PROVEN - in MY LIFE, too. You have to LOVE GOD, with all your heart; with all your soul; with all your strength and with all your mind.
Read again the review of "Baby A. Gil", "ONE" of the SUPERVISING Music Producers of VIVA Entertainment Group Inc. Viva Entertainment Group Inc. is the largest and the most powerful Film Maker, Producer of Television Shows and Home Videos and Record Company in the Philippines who is managing the career of Sharon Cuneta, a MEGASTAR for more than THIRTY-FIVE years.
YES. I agree -- "Who are you" is my favorite . Her voice is so smooth in this one.And now for the grand finale and also the best of them all. Remember how much we all loved Carrie’s Jesus Takes The Wheel? She puts one over that by sounding heavenly with the power ballad Who Are You. This girl really takes your breath away.
Carrie Underwood is a PREMIER ARTIST - "ONE" of the CROWN JEWELS in the music industry - WIDELY ADMIRED by LEGENDS, ICONS and PREMIER ARTISTS ALIKE and KNOWLEGEABLE BUSINESSPEOPLE in the music industry, knowledgeable businesspeople in "THE SOUND OF MUSIC PROJECT", just to mention one of them. Carrie is a VERY SPECIAL and ELITE BREED of artist and made an INDELIBLE IMPRINT in the music industry. Carrie is more than successful! Carrie is more than enduring! Carrie has served as a GREAT ROLE MODEL! Carrie is a FUTURE "ICON"!
