The 'Cowboy Casanova' singer co-writes the upcoming single with Chris DeStefano and Ashley Gorley, and will release it in February.
Three years after releasing her third studio album "Play On", Carrie Underwood finally reveals a new single for her next effort. In a video message, the "American Idol" alum announces a song titled "Good Girl" as her first official offering from the new CD. "It will blow you guys away," so the country/pop singer promises.
Underwood penned the single with Chris DeStefano and Ashley Gorley, who co-wrote two of her No. 1 hits, "Don't Forget to Remember Me" and "All-American Girl". "We had a blast writing it," she recalled the session. "I'm really excited for everyone to hear it. It's pretty rockin'. We went into the writing session thinking we need to write something that just kicks butt."
"Chris DeStefano, one of the writers is - I call him a little mad scientist on all of his Pro Tools stuff - he, like, plays every instrument you could possibly think of, and he, like, started makin' this track, and we started...we just went. It was fast. We wrote it fast, and it's just fun! It's upbeat, it's fun, you stomp your feet, and you can dance to it. It's got this really rockin' verse, and this really, like, rockin' country chorus. So, it's just a really cool song."
The "Mama's Song" singer is going to launch the new track on radio on February 23, and will follow it up by releasing her new album, which is yet to be titled, later this spring. On top of that, she is scheduled to collaborate with Aerosmith' lead singer, Steven Tyler, on "CMT Crossroads", which will air on February 4.
