Carrie Underwood Reveals 4th Album Title & Cover Art: Blown Away

After releasing her first single off the album, Good Girl (lyrics & review), to deafening success, Carrie Underwood has released the cover and title of her 4th album to fans.

On her official website, she had a succession of reveals which will ultimately gave away the title and cover of the album. The cover, has a darker theme than her previous album covers going on for it – as well as full display of Carrie’s legs. I think she knows we love them.

The cover has a yellow brick road, conveying a Wizard of Oz theme. With Carrie standing on the side, with a very fierce look on her face. I’m not the biggest fan of the look, to be honest. But the whole cover, with its artistic leanings and ferocity, is bold. And it works. It also contrasts greatly with the cover of Carrie’s first album, Some Hearts, in which she was standing in a field of flowers, the sun shining and her smiling. Well, it looks like Carrie Underwood is no longer in Kansas, ladies and gentlemen, or Oklahoma for that matter. And she knows it. She’s also flaunting it.

As for the title, after hinting it’s a two word title and giving her fans a chance at guessing it, most of the guesses being shot down almost immediately,one guess, however, turned out to be correct – and consistent with the Wizard of Oz theme: Blown Away.

Blown Away is the title of a song registered at ASCAP. It’s written by Josh Kear and Chris Tompkins, the writers who brought the world Before He Cheats.

What do you think of the album title and cover?

I’d give them an 8/10

  3. I love the cover. I think the title will make sense when we see the track listing. This is a real departure for Carrie from the first three album covers. On those she was a sweet girl. On this, she has grown up to be a forceful woman ready to take the world by storm, pun intended.

  4. One thing can be said about Carrie that is not present in other female Country artists, she is bold, risky and unpredictable. I think that is what makes her so appealing to her fans. It is tiring when artists come out with the same look, the same sounding songs and the same theme. I applaud her for taking risks and I hope it continues to pay off.
