“Leave Love Alone” – Track On Carrie Underwood’s Upcoming Album (Demo)!

Check out a demo for a song called “Leave Love Alone” set to be on Carrie Underwood’s upcoming album, due May 1st!

Canadian country songwriter Gordie Sampson’s list of credits confirms that a song he cowrote with Hillary Lindsey and Troy Verges called “Leave Love Alone” will appear on Carrie Underwood’s upcoming album, due May 1st. Gordie Sampson and Hillary Lindsey have cowritten a couple of Carrie’s most memorable singles together: her debut single “Jesus Take The Wheel” (with Brett James) and “Just A Dream” (with Steven McEwan), as well as standout album tracks like “Get Out Of This Town”, “Someday When I Stop Loving You” and “This Time” (all with Steven McEwan).

Check out the demo for this rootsy bluesy stomper after the jump. That’s the very talented cowriter Hillary Lindsey on lead vocals in the demo.


If the studio version retains the rootsy feel of the demo, “Leave Love Alone” will represent a fresh, edgier sound from Carrie. What do you think about the song?

The lead single for Carrie’s upcoming album, “Good Girl” (cowritten by Carrie, Chris DeStefano, and Ashley Gorley) is set to be released to radio next week, on February 23rd! Check out a clip here:

    It reminds me of something Miranda Lambert would sing.

    Same old stuff. Kind of predictable. Then again, I think most country music is today.

    Loving the demo!! I can’t wait for Carrie’s album!! I just love Hillary Lindsey, I just think she writes hit after hit. Has she ever tried to have a singing career?

    I love it!  It has a fresh rootsy sound which is new for Carrie!  I think it will be a nice album track, kind of a transition song between radio singles– but the melody and banjo is fantastic! I absolutely love the direction Carrie is going in if this is any indication!  I am ready for a new direction from Carrie- and I think this is it!

    Love the music on this track – the banjo and rootsy sounds. Catchy tune too. The lyrics not so much…

    Love the Good Girl snippet, but not feeling the demo song. Maybe Carrie’s voice will change how i feel about it.

    I love it! I think it has a fresh sound for Carrie, and I like that she is going in a slightly more country/folky direction on this song, anyway.
