    Country Universe - Recommend a Track: Pick the Next Single

    Recommend a Track: Pick the Next Single
    by Kevin John Coyne

    Today, I’m bringing back an old Country Universe favorite: Recommend a Track.

    We all like to play armchair record executive. So I’m asking readers to share what they think should be the next single from a current country album.

    My Pick: Carrie Underwood, “Do You Think About Me”

    The first two singles from Blown Away have been dramatic affairs, where the production is as much the star as the vocalist. I’ve found both “Good Girl” and “Blown Away” to be very compelling singles, but I’m jonesing for a simpler showcase of Underwood’s incomparable vocals.

    “Do You Think About Me” is thematically similar to “Strawberry Wine”, but it’s heavier on nostalgia for the actual relationship and is refreshingly indifferent to any innocence lost. It’s a crisply produced record that allows the melody to remain front and center. It’s one of those records that makes me smile every time I hear it.

    What do you think should be the next single sent to radio from a current country album?

    So for the DYTAM fans who want this as the 3rd single, you have an ally in Kevin lol.

    I am fine with this choice if it is indeed the next single but they had better release WAW somewhere down the road.

    I agree with him about wanting to see something simpler and softer but I personally prefer Wine after Whiskey or Good in Goodbye.

    I totally agree with this post. Of course, I will support whatever Carrie decides.

    I will support Carrie but I hope the next single is not NETY. I like the song but don't want it as a single.

    Wine After Whiskey!! It's a great song and people will love it
    Evan Farmer wants it to be a single (not that his opinion really matters)

    I want LLA too , but not as the next single, prob 4th or 5th. I want the next one to be a slower one.

    I wonder if Carrie and her people are finding this as hard of a decision as her fans are - Ha - one thing we all have in common is we love this cd and these songs and we'll love whatever choice they make - we just want the singles to come out in the order we choose - all 14 of them!!

    I think it's between GIG and DYTAM, but I would love for single #3 to be WAW. I can envision Carrie doing an emotionally-charged, tear-jerking rendition of WAW (a la Kelly Pickler's "I Wonder" in 2007) at this year's CMA and just tug heartstrings and open faucets.

    ^^ That is exactly what I was thinking. Not to mention she's a CMA co-host!

    Looking ahead, we have the ACAs, Grammys, PCAs, and ACMs! Should be a great award season for Carrie!

    She's going to have to build some new shelves in her house, for all the awards she WILL be receiving!
