Carrie Underwood Releases New Song “Ghost Story”
- Back in July 2021, American country music singer-songwriter Carrie Underwood joined in American country music singer-songwriter Jason Aldean's “If I Didn't Love You”.
The song won for Single of the Year at the 57th Academy of Country Music Awards and is nominated for Best Country/Duo Performance for the 64th Grammy Awards.
The Grammy Awards ceremony will take place at he MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on April 3, 2022.
Following the song, she released the first single of 2022 called “Ghost Story” on March 18, 2022.
It was written by Josh Kear, Hillary Lindsey and David Garcia, and she co-produced it with David Garcia.
“They are such talented, amazing songwriters who know me so well, and from the first time I heard it, I knew I had to record it,” Carrie Underwood said. “I have always loved performing songs that tell a story and inspire some kind of cinematic imagery when you hear them, and that is definitely true of ’Ghost Story.’ It creates a mood and a vibe that is different than anything else I’ve recorded before.”
Carrie Underwood told Today’s Country Radio with Kelleigh Bannen on Apple Music Country, “I feel like the chord changes and just kind of the musicality of it; it just didn’t sound like anything else that’s on the radio right now. And I feel like it was a great first choice first single because I feel like it’s enough of hopefully what people like about me. There’s some drama. It’s a cinematic song. It’s a great story song … and there’s just something kind of epic about it. So I just felt like it was a great song, and then getting in the studio and singing it myself, it was just like, ’Ah, this just feels good.'”
The song is the first single off of her upcoming album. She said, “We covered a lot of ground making it and just kind of went into the whole project (like), ’Let’s just have fun and make music we love and see what happens.'”
She continued, “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,” Underwood said. “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.”
