Underwood releases "My Savior" cover, promo video
Tuesday, January 19, 2021
– Carrie Underwood released the cover for her upcoming gospel disc, "My Savior," today along with a promotional video explaining her desire to record the music.
Underwood is depicted from the shoulders up on the simple cover with a white background, peering to the left. The release will be out March 26 and is the follow-up to her first Christmas disc, "My Gift," which dropped last September.
"This album is one that I have always wanted to make," Underwood said in a promotional video. "This is legacy stuff to me...One thing I definitely wanted to do was do the familiar, I wanted to do the traditional songs that I grew up singing. The songs on this album are literally songs that I heard from birth."
"These songs are like a warm hug, you know, just familiar and sweet" said Underwood, referring to gospel music as "a great foundation for me now as an artist."
Underwood said the recording was harder than she anticipated. "I quickly recognized that this was going to be harder than I thought it was going to be," she said with a laugh.

This was atop a frightening fall at her home that ended with her face in nearly 50 stitches. Sharing these moments with her fans makes the beamingly-beautiful singer ...
