New album alert.
Fresh off her Grammy win for Best Roots Gospel Album for her 2021 My Savior album, Carrie Underwood is keeping the momentum going.
Announced today, Carrie revealed that her next studio album will be titled, Denim And Rhinestone, and is set for release on June 10th.
“I can’t wait any longer! I have a new album coming June 10! Get ready for ‘Denim And Rhinestones’! Pre-order beginning at midnight ET!”
Carrie told Apple Music that fans can expect a lot of fun:
“I feel like overall, just this next project is… It’s fun. It’s a lot of fun. We covered a lot of ground making it and just kind of went into the whole project of let’s just have fun and make music we love and see what happened.
And I got to write a lot. I got to co-produce again with David Garcia, which is just so much fun getting able to be there from the ground up and really make more musical decision.
Yeah, it’s a lot of fun and I feel like people are going to hear everything and just going to get some warm fuzzies and just, I don’t know, hopefully it’ll just make people happy to listen to.
It’s a very like sing into your hairbrush, in your house, in your room kind of album, which I think it’s going to translate well. I think people are going to like it.”
Just last month, Carrie previewed the new project with the release of the lead single, “Ghost Story,” the song she also performed at the Grammys.
Carrie Wins Grammy For Best Roots Gospel Album
Carrie Underwood had a huge night at the Grammys.
She took home the award for Best Roots Gospel Album for her incredible 2021 My Savior album, and it left her feeling overwhelmed with emotion.
The album, which includes tons of classic hymns like “Old Rugged Cross”, “How Great Thou Art”, and “Nothing but the Blood of Jesus”, was inspired by Carrie’s experiences singing in church growing up, and it was easily one of my favorite records of 2021.
During press time after her win, she was asked if this one means just a little bit more than her seven other Grammys, simply due to the personal sentiment and meaning behind every song.
She immediately teared up answering the question, and you could feel just how much it meant to her to win something for this record in particular:
“I’m gonna immediately start crying… I feel like it’s more important, ‘cuz I feel like this is one of the most important bodies of work I’ve ever been apart of, been able to do.
This is one thing that I’ve wanted to do literally my whole career, I’ve wanted to make this alum, and I got to. And this just means the world to me.
Man, I didn’t last any length of time, did I?”
If you haven’t check it out yet, I highly recommend doing so.
Not only is it a fantastic gospel record from top to bottom that will remind you of Sunday mornings in church, it’s easily the most country project she’s ever put out. I can’t say enough good things about it.
And she took to Instagram to post about her big win, doubling down on the fact that she believes it’s the most important record she’s ever made:
“I WON A GRAMMY!!!!! I love this album, My Savior, so much and I truly believe it is the most important album I have ever made!
Thanks to all who supported! I am eternally grateful! Glory to God! AND I got to sing Ghost Story for the first time on the Grammy stage! What a night…”
