Carrie Underwood celebrated her latest No. 1 single, "Good Girl," at an invitation-only party at the Country Music Association building in Nashville, Tuesday (Aug. 28).
Carrie co-wrote the song with Ashley Gorley and Chris DeStefano and told reporters before the event that she thought the song would be the perfect kickoff to her Blown Away album. "When you think of a first single from a new album, I like one that is up-tempo and fun," Carrie said. "It was one of the last songs we wrote [for the album]. I actually crashed Chris and Ashley's writing session. They were writing in L.A. and I had a day off. They kind of had this groove going and by the end of a couple hours we had it down."
Carrie added that for this new album she wanted to switch up her writing style a bit. "I feel more comfortable as a writer," she noted.
Carrie also talked about her recent concerts overseas and her upcoming tour with Hunter Hayes as her opening act. "We are in rehearsals this week," Carrie said. "I can't wait to see everything myself. I have seen so many computer renderings and things like that. There is a lot of great technology out there now so we are able to utilize that." Carrie also promised that the shows will feature a number of costume changes and state-of-the-art production values.
During the party, Carrie and her co-writers were honored with commemorative plaques and accolades from ASCAP, BMI, the Country Music Association and others.
