Carrie Underwood Reveals She’s Writing for New Album
Carrie Underwood is multi-talented, and apparently is returning some attention to one of those many talents — songwriting. Between singing, performing, acting and CMA Awards hosting, it may be hard for the ‘American Idol’ winner to make time for songwriting.
According to a tweet by Radio.com, the singer is making time to write songs “a lot lately” and she says “it’s going well!”

Underwood hasn’t released an album since 2012’s ‘Blown Away’ which featured her hit songs ‘Good Girl’ and ‘Blown Away’ and several songs she co-wrote. Underwood penned eight of the 14 songs on that album including ‘Two Black Cadillacs,’ ‘See You Again,’ ‘Cupid’s Got A Shotgun’ and ‘Wine After Whiskey.’ ‘Good Girl’ was the album’s breakout single, reaching No. 1 on the charts.
Underwood has also written songs that also haven’t appeared on her own albums. She wrote a song for ‘American Idol’ finalist Kristy Lee Cook‘s debut album ‘Why Wait.’ She also lent a songwriting hand for a movie soundtrack. She co-wrote and recorded ‘There’s A Place For Us’ for ‘The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader.’ It was the film’s lead single and even gave the singer and the other co-writers a Golden Globe nomination for Best Original Song.
With all that talent, the upcoming album is sure to be one fans won’t want to miss. Underwood’s songwriting skills combined with her singing talents should make a great follow-up to ‘Blown Away.’
