Carrie Underwood Releases New Album “Denim & Rhinestones”: Streaming
American country music singer-songwriter Carrie Underwood released her ninth studio album “Denim & Rhinestones” on June 10, 2022 via Capitol Records Nashville.
The album follows up the gospel covers album “My Savior”, which was released back in March.
The album comprises 12-track, produced by David Garcia and Carrie Underwood.
She recorded the album throughout the years of 2021 and 2022.
“I really just wanted to make an album that felt like fun,” Carrie Underwood said of the album. “I feel like this one ended up being a bigger reflection of me as a person and as an artist. We have a lot of songs that could be considered throwback songs, but they sound super fresh. These are influences that are in me and work their way out and I just decided this time not to get in their way.”
She continued, “I want to think about going out on the road. I want to think about being on tour. I want to think about being with people again and how these songs are going to translate in front of people. So, that's what we did. We didn't think about it too much. We made music that really felt good, that feels good to sing, that felt fun to write.”
Carrie Underwood explained of some tracks for the album via Apple Music.
“It's just fun. The music is super fun. It's super happy. It's bubbly. When we wrote it, it was just a fun, easy day, and it's one of those that you want to sing along with.”
“'Ghost Story' was very difficult to sing. That was the one that by the end of it, I was like, 'Don't we have it?' And I don't ever do that, because I will sing a song 20 times in the studio, longer than that, however many times I have to sing it. And I feel like I can keep going. And if I don't feel like I have it but the producer over the years has been like, 'I think we got it,' I'm like, 'Nope. Nope. I haven't reached it. I'm not there yet. I feel like I still got some gas in the tank. I want to see what I can do with it.' But 'Ghost Story' was hard. It was the hill to climb, for sure.”
“She Don't Know”
“It's just playing a character, and it's fun to go there. And especially a song like 'She Don't Know.' It is a cheating song, but it's still got this cinematic quality in that you just play the movie in your head. And you can see these characters that you have in your head; you can just see the girl in her heels, pushing the little cart down the aisle.”
“I had a garden before, but hadn't really invested myself into it that much. But I had a lot of time to do that in 2020. It's something that I love so much for a lot of reasons. I do love having our own food for health reasons. I love that. But then there's so many life metaphors that you think about when you're in the garden. You think about, 'Well, which one of these is bearing fruit, and what do I need to do? I need to cut this off because it's not contributing to the plant.' Growing things, relying on God to make some miracles happen—it is a miracle to me. You have this tiny little seed that means nothing and you stick in the ground, put some water on it, and then magic happens. It's amazing.”
