Carrie Underwood is preparing to release her new studio album, Cry Pretty, on Friday (September 14th). Her most personal collection to date, Cry Pretty, features 9 songs co-written by Carrie, including the title track and the bonus song, “The Champion,” which was used for 2018’s Super Bowl and the Winter Olympics.
In her first official role as co-producer, alongside David Garcia, Carrie says it was truly a collaborative effort between them.
“I have ideas in my head, but I’m trying to explain to him, ‘I’m picturing it like this. What if we added more this, took this away and changed the song up and half this chorus and made this happen,’” says Carrie. “He was always so great to listen to my ideas, of course, collaborate with me, bounce ideas off each other, and then he was good at executing technically what I was trying to say, because I knew how I wanted it to sound and I feel like he respected me as an artist. So, it was just really great working with him and truly collaborate.”
In Spring 2019, Underwood will launch a new arena tour, The Cry Pretty Tour 360. Sponsored by CALIA, the new tour will kick off on May 1 in Greensboro, NC, and will play 55 arenas across the U.S. and Canada and be promoted by AEG Presents.
Carrie will be joined on tour by special guests Maddie & Tae and Runaway June.
