Carrie Underwood Breaks Own Personal Record with “Something in the Water”

Carrie Underwood’s latest single, “Something in the Water,” is spending it’s seventh week at #1 on Billboard’s airplay/sales/streaming-based Hot Country Songs chart, which breaks her own personal record, previously set by her debut single, “Jesus Take the Wheel.”

 

One of the more interesting aspects of the song for Carrie was shooting the photo for the single.  “It’s always difficult when you’re trying to think of how to sum up a song in a picture,” says Carrie.  “Even, like, album covers and things like that, I mean …you just kind of have to sum everything up in a snapshot, a moment in time.”

 

When it came time to capture the essence of “Something in the Water,” Carrie laughs and says, “It was like, ‘What do we do with the water?’  It was tough, so we did the best we could and came up with some really beautiful images.”

 

In all honesty she laughs and says, “I wouldn’t say that was the funnest photo shoot ever, because I was soaking wet, but it made for some pretty pictures.”

 

“Something in the Water” is one of two new songs on Carrie’s Greatest Hits: Decade #1 album, which is available now.

 

Miranda Lambert Pens Original Song for New RAM Trucks Campaign

Miranda Lambert is continuing her partnership with RAM Trucks that was started last year, with new TV commercials featuring Miranda singing an original song called “Roots & Wings,” she was inspired to write based on the characteristics of the RAM brand, plus there will be print, digital, social media and long-form video elements to the new ad campaign as well.  All of the featured still photos in the ad campaign are Miranda’s personal family photos.

 

“I am very inspired by what the Ram brand stands for – being who you are, working hard, staying true to your roots,” said Miranda. “I wanted to write a song that would represent all of those things. ‘Roots and Wings’ is personal to me about where I come from and where I am going. The guys at Ram really made the lyrics come to life with the imagery and I hope it speaks to people the way it does to me.”

 

The silver Ram 1500 Laramie Longhorn, just like the one Miranda owns, is the Official Truck of her Certified Platinum tour.  It will tow her Airstream trailer, “Wanda the Wanderer,” to each venue and will be on display at her concerts for fans to take pictures with and upload to social media using the hashtag #RootsWingsRAM for a chance to win a Miranda Lambert and Ram prize pack.

Blake Shelton Knows Miranda Lambert is Nervous about Him Hosting SNL Tomorrow Night

Blake Shelton will be pulling double duty tomorrow night when he hosts and performs as the musical guest on SNL.  He told E! News, “I don’t know which one I’m more nervous about, (hosting or) performing, because I grew up, obviously like all of us did, watching this show and because I’m an artist, I’m a country singer, that was always my dream is to get a chance to sing on this show.”

 

Unfortunately Blake’s wife, Miranda Lambert won’t be able to join him on the set because she has a concert in Charleston, West Virginia, but according to Blake, it may be better that she’s not there.  “I think there’s a little part of Miranda that’s really worried about this, just to be completely honest,” he says.  “Miranda’s always the one that when we’re at parties or something and I’m being funny, and I start taking it too far, almost into gross land or whatever, she’s always like, ‘Blake.  Blake.  Stop it.’”

 

Miranda admits she is a little nervous for him, but she’s also very excited about Blake’s SNL gig and she’s planning to host a viewing party after her concert.  “He’s the perfect person to be on SNL. He, like, lives in an SNL skit anyway, so, it’s gonna be interesting… I think he’s gonna have fun. I really do.”

 

Blake’s not too worried about hosting and performing on SNL.  He says, “I feel like I’ve made it at this point, so what’s the worst that’s gonna happen?”
