Carrie Underwood – “Dirty Laundry” Official Music Video


“Dirty Laundry’s” dramatic and emotionally charged black and white music video is Carrie Underwood’s first collaboration with director Shane C. Drake of Taillight Productions.

The song, currently at #20 on both the Billboard and Mediabase country airplay charts, is the fourth single from her gold-certified, fifth studio album, Storyteller, which has produced three consecutive #1 singles, “Smoke Break,” “Heartbeat” and “Church Bells.” Dubbed “deliciously dark” by the Boston Globe, and “elegantly structured and technically impressive” by The New York Times, “Dirty Laundry” is produced by Jay Joyce and written by Zach Crowell, Ashley Gorley, and Hillary Lindsey.

“I really connected with Shane’s artistic vision for the video,” said the American Idol season 4 winner.  “It’s all about emotion and that moment when a woman has finally reached that point, after the heartache, of being done with a relationship. Shane had the idea to include some beautiful animals that represent the parallels between human and animal behavior and instincts, which look great interwoven with visuals of emotional women and men. It gave us a way to portray one of my songs in a way we’ve never done before.”

“It’s about emotion — my emotion, [and] we have other people that came in to just kind of be one-on-one with the camera and just emote directly into the lens,” Carrie told Entertainment Tonight. “Different guys and girls come in, and it’s just all about emotion. It’s not to following the storyline too much, which is something I really didn’t wanna do. It’s a little more abstract than that.”
