Underwood finds a place with Narnia
Monday, November 1, 2010
– Carrie Underwood recorded the end title song, There's a Place for Us,
for the holiday motion picture "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader," in theaters Dec. 10.
Underwood agreed to co-write (with David Hodges and Hillary Lindsey) and record the song, produced by Mark Bright, after the filmmakers screened for them a rough cut of the picture.
Underwood said, "I'm a big fan of the 'Narnia' books and films, so I was really excited about seeing this new movie and writing and performing a song for it. I was blown away by the film, and I think people are going to be really excited when they see it. It's the perfect holiday film."
The movie "presents an imaginative world that's also relatable because it's easy to connect the characters and themes to our own lives," Underwood continues. "The land of Narnia represents a place where the young heroes truly belong. That inspired me to get together with David and Hillary and write There's a Place for Us, which says that for everybody, there's a place where you're powerful and where you belong. The movie and song are about finding that place where you fit in."
The song will receive major broadcast and online debuts this month, and will be available for purchase exclusively at iTunes on Nov. 16. International cover versions of Underwood's song will be recorded overseas in a small number of select countries, broadening the impact of this worldwide release.

Underwood always sings well, no matter how her songs are arranged, but it's a true treat to hear that voice without much of the big production that usually accompanies it. ...
It makes logical sense that Carrie Underwood, arguably mainstream country music's best pure vocalist, would make a Christmas album. And make no mistake about it, this is a 'Christmas' album, as opposed to a 'holiday' release. These 11 tracks are nearly all spiritual in nature. Therefore, you won't hear about Santa, reindeer or even toys under the tree.
The only truly secular track is "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas," which is not – by a long ...
Carrie Underwood's life was reading straight from the storybooks: one of the few American Idol Winners with ongoing success; a professional athlete for a husband; a beautiful baby boy.

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 ...
