“Blown Away,” the title track of Carrie Underwood’s fourth album which has held the #1 position for five consecutive weeks on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart, has been selected as her next single. Impacting country radio on Monday, July 9, “Blown Away” has already amassed nearly 200,000 downloads prior to its official shipment as an airplay single, and, as reflected by media activity, is the “top fan choice for next single.” Millions have already seen Carrie perform this dynamic song on two primetime television programs, “American Idol” on May 3 and the “2012 Billboard Music Awards” on May 20. Naming it “The Blown Away Tour,” the country superstar recently announced she will headline her third arena tour of North America, starting September 14 in Manchester, New Hampshire, and continuing through December.
This week, the Arista Nashville promotion team will approach country radio programmers with the details on how to win a Private World Premiere of Carrie’s “Blown Away” music video. The prize package for this nationwide contest includes a “red carpet” event for a group of listeners in the winning station’s market which will be attended by Underwood. Country radio contest contact information is listed at the end of this press release.
The music video of “Blown Away” was directed by Randee St. Nicholas and produced by Brandon Bonfiglio for Randee St. Nicholas Photography.
