NEW MUSIC: CARRIE UNDERWOOD | DEMIN & RHINESTONES + ANNOUNCES NEW ALBUM
Carrie Underwood has revealed the upcoming release of a new studio album for 2022. The country superstar turned to social media early Thursday to share the cover (seen below) and release date for "Denim & Rhinestones," Accompanied by the news comes the release of the title song of the same name, which is a follow-up to the first single “Ghost Story,” that feels mainly like a contemporary production but fits in with Underwood’s appreciation for storytellers like Martina McBride and Reba McEntire. Underwood recently performed the song at the 2022 Grammy Awards, in which she won her eighth career Grammy Award win when she took home the Best Roots Gospel Album trophy for her faith-based project, "My Savior." "Denim and Rhinestones" will be released on June 10th is a special date for Underwood: It was on that date 17 years ago that she made her debut performance on the Grand Ole Opry in 2005, just over two weeks after winning American Idol. During that debut performance, Underwood performed “Inside Your Heaven” (her first release after winning Idol) as well as a rendition of Roy Orbison’s “Crying.” She was later inducted as a member of the Opry on May 10, 2008. "Denim & Rhinestones" is the follow-up to 2018’s "Cry Pretty." Since then, Underwood also released a Christmas album, "My Gift," in 2020 and a Gospel album, My Savior, in 2021. Carrie Underwood recently wrapped another sold-out run of her "Reflection: The Las Vegas Residency" at the Resorts World Theatre. She’ll return to Sin City for her next engagement on May 11-21. On April 30, the mother of two will head to Indio, California, to headline the legendary Stagecoach Festival.
