From Windmills in yesterday’s comments: Here’s an update from Carrie Underwood on her upcoming album. The Season 4 Idol winner posted the deets on her fan club forum yesterday:

Yesterday [Friday] was her last official studio day for her 4th album. She has finished recording vocals except for one background vocal part. Producer Mark Bright and mixer/engineer Derek Bason are going to work on the songs now and Carrie will be listening to everything over the holidays. She doesn’t know the album release date so anything that’s going around now (like May 1st) is just a rumor. The photo shoot she did this week was for the single cover and may be part of the album artwork packaging too.

They’ve narrowed down the lead single to 2 songs: one that she got early in the process of making the album and one she cowrote recently that blew everybody away. She’s pretty sure she’s got the album title down too.

This probably doesn’t mean anything but the 2 most recent Carrie cowrites (out of the 41 new cowrites registered this era) registered are:

The Riverbank Song (Carrie, Ashley Gorley, Kelley Lovelace)
1989 (Carrie, David Hodges, Steve McEwan)

Carrie cowrote All American Girl from Carnival Ride and Lauren Alaina’s Eighteen Inches with Ashley Gorley and Kelley Lovelace. She cowrote What Can I Say from Play On with David Hodges and Steve McEwan.

  • debbie poiqe

    Bet she does a duet w/ Scotty sometime soon (probably not on album ?)….but I can tell she thinks he’s excellent……..look at her face on ACA’S….

    Carrie seems like such a wonderful role-model for any aspiring, young artist and I would love it if Scotty could join her on one of her tours early in his career. Whoever gets to open for her when she starts promoting her new album will be very lucky indeed! Even though Carrie has already achieved super-stardom, I have a feeling that this album will be her defining album and I can’t wait to hear  the first single that is released for it!

    Cannot wait for Carrie new album. I think it would be great if Carrie, Kellie,and Lauren can go on tour together. That tour would be so awesome. I would definitely pay to see that. The three country females from idol.
    I am interested to see what direction her album is going to go in this time.

    Glad she is going to have new music out and a tour.  She sounds refreshed and
    ready to go after her time off.

    I’m predicting 1989 as the 1st single
