Wednesday, April 18, 2018
– Carrie Underwood will release her new album, "Cry Pretty," on Sept. 14, she announced today.
This will be her first studio album on Capitol Records Nashville. The title track and lead single was released worldwide on April 11 and is the most added song at country radio this week. Underwood co-wrote the song with Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna and Liz Rose (aka The Love Junkies) and is co-producing her album with fellow writer/producer David Garcia.
Underwood said, "At this point in my career, I feel stronger and more creative than ever. I think you can hear that in this new album. It's emotional, it's soulful, it's real, and we also have some fun on there too. I hope everyone loves it as much as I have loved making it."
On Sunday night at the 53rd Annual Academy of Country Music Awards, Underwood won her 14th career ACM Award for Vocal Event of the Year for "The Fighter," her collaboration with Keith Urban. She also performed "Cry Pretty."
The song list was not released.
