    Carrie Underwood Strips Down for Intimate Songwriters Session at CRS

    Carrie Underwood Strips Down for Intimate Songwriters Session at CRS



    Carrie Underwood was in rare form on Wednesday night (Feb. 27), stripped down for a bare bones and relaxed version of not only her hit songs, but herself — just Carrie. The superstar traded designer gowns for a more casual black pants, light jacket look to join top country songwriters Luke Laird, Hillary Lindsey and Josh Kear for a swap of songs, performed acoustically on a small Nashville stage in front of an intimate Country Radio Seminar (CRS) audience.

    Laird, Lindsey and Kear have had a hand in many of not only Underwood’s hit songs (‘Jesus Take the Wheel,’ ‘Before He Cheats,’ ‘Blown Away,’ to name a few), but practically every country song you’ve had stuck in your head over the past few years — ‘Pontoon,’ ‘Need You Now,’ ‘A Little Bit Stronger’ … all are on their respective resumes.

    On this chilly Nashville evening, each talented artist took turns playing their signature hits — some Underwood, some not — with the ‘Good Girl’ singer chiming in to help with vocals, per the request of the modest songwriters. She also eagerly chimed in to help tell the story of the songs which she had a hand in; she blushed as she spilled how ‘Last Name’ came from a trip to Vegas, during which she a guy’s last name “didn’t stick” and she had to brainstorm ideas to uncover it.

    While Underwood is best known for being perhaps the top young female vocalist in country music, she showed on Wednesday that her talents extend far beyond her vocal range. She’s equally as deserving of a nod for her songwriting abilities, something which was illuminated in the company of Laird, Kear, Lindsey and country radio professionals.

    Driving to work this morning, my local country station was talking about yesterday's CRS. The DJs were talking to the General Manager and the GM said that the session by Carrie et al in that small room setting was amazing. The GM said that Luke can't sing and that Carrie and Hilary (an excellent singer herself) helped out Luke as they sang a wonderful rendition of "Pontoon". He was just gushing over how great that whole set was. He also said that this CRS event is highly attended by all the GM/PDs.
