Carrie Underwood Writing - And Performing - New Music

Underwood Debuts VERY Special Song This Week

Carrie Underwood is creating a buzz with her performance at Monday's taping of the Academy of Country Music's upcoming "Tribute to the Troops" concert special. 

According to HitFix.com, Carrie wrote the "Keep Us Safe" specifically for the show, which honored members of the U.S. military.  She's also reportedly going to offer the song as a free download to those who make a donation to the Academy's charity, ACM Lifting Lives. You'll have to wait to see it though. Overnight, fan-shot videos of her singing "Keep Us Safe" at the event were cropping up online. They've been yanked offline by lawyers about as fast as they're going up. Trust us though - it's amazing. 

The concert special "ACM Presents: An All-Star Salute to the Troops" was a fundraiser for the organization.  The show was taped at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, and will air on CBS on May 20th.

 

  • ONE MORE THING! Writing isn't a new thing for Carrie - her last album was "Blown Away" released in 2012.  She co-wrote 8 of the 14 songs on that project including "Two Black Cadillacs" and "Good Girl."  It's time for a new album so she's making time to write again.  Her busy schedule has her hosting the CMA Awards show, performing on tour, posing for magazine covers and more.  But she's also a songwriter who's written songs for other projects that include the song "There's A Place For Us" for the movie "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Treader."  The song was nominated for a Golden Globe.  Carrie says that in spite of the madness, she is making time to write "a lot lately and it's going well."
