Carrie: “You’ve Got to Make People Miss You a Little Bit”

“To me, if you have no life in between albums, you have nothing to write about. . . . I have to live.”

Carrie Underwood puts out her new album, Blown Away, May 1—about two and a half years after her last album, Play On, was released.

Carrie says she was in no hurry to put out new material—and other artists shouldn't be either.

"It seems like people have an album out every year and they are on a 'perma-tour' is what I call it. They tour permanently, all the time," she tells Billboard magazine.

"They live on tour and when they aren't on tour, they are making an album. To me, if you have no life in between albums, you have nothing to write about. . . . I have to live."

Carrie adds, "We definitely did the right thing by taking some extra time. You've got to make people miss you a little bit."

And miss her we did: Carrie's new single, "Good Girl," is No. 8 on the country singles chart after only seven weeks.
