Carrie Underwood’s “Blown Away” music video has finally premiered. In this beautifully shot video, Carrie plays a young heroine who must decide whether to help her drunken, abusive father to safety when a twister blows through town.
Anyone familiar with the classic 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz, will recognize the imagery director Randee St. Nicholas uses to tell the dark yet ultimately hopeful tale. The mixture of B&W and color cinematography is an obvious nod, but I won’t spoil the rest. Oh, and that’s Carrie’s dog Penny, near the end, making her video debut.
