    Carrie Underwood takes control

    A country ingenue evolves into a confident, hands-on artist

    By Phyllis Stark
    Special to MSN Music

    Carrie Underwood says she'll never take a producer credit on her albums, but listen to her talk about the making of her latest, "Blown Away," and it's clear she had a guiding hand in everything from the songwriting on through to the recording.

    In the span of four albums and seven years, Underwood has fully evolved from a wide-eyed "American Idol" winner with little professional experience to a strong, confident artist with a clear vision for her music and her career. On "Blown Away," she's a co-writer on eight of the 14 songs, including many of the album's best tracks.

    Even before making her first album in 2005, Underwood expressed her desire to learn the craft of songwriting, so executives at her record label began pairing her with some of Nashville's top writers to see what happened.

    "I didn't really know if I would be any good at it," she admits, "but I thought, 'Why not try?' I wouldn't have been devastated if somebody had said, 'Hey, kid, maybe you should just stick with singing the songs,' but I just loved it. I ended up with several cuts on the album, and then they were pitched to be the singles. It was very reassuring and very confidence-building to me."

    It was interesting to see her growth as a person from the farmgirl in the AI intro the other day.
