Giving viewers something exciting to wake up to, Carrie Underwood had an amazing live performance on “Good Morning America” today (May 1).
The “Jesus Take the Wheel” country chick took the stage in New York City’s Times Square to celebrate the release of her brand new album Blown Away.
Underwood’s first single off the album “Good Girl” seems to have struck a chord with female fans, and in a recent interview she explained how she felt recording the track.
“It's such a fun, rocking song. I was lucky enough to be in the room and be a co-writer on the song. It was just all about having fun and showing some attitude. We, as ladies, have a lot of layers to us. We definitely have our good sides and our bad sides. (laughs) So it was fun to kind of play off of that.”
As for her decision to take some time off before recording Blown Away, Carrie explained, “I felt a little bit like I was on a hamster wheel. So many artists get caught up living their life between a tour bus and a recording studio. I had three albums come out in October or November every other year, and I just didn't want to do things the same way. It wasn't so much that I thought [doing that again] would be a bad thing, but I'm the kind of person who needs to switch things up and try new things and shake it up. Things end up better when they're on the fly and a little unexpected. Everybody is on the edge of their seat, and they're ready for anything. So I changed the way I wrote. I changed the way I recorded, and I took a little time to miss it and, hopefully, for people to miss me a little, as well.”
