Carrie Underwood: ‘I’m a Little Schizo!’

Many strong words can be used to describe Carrie Underwood (talented and beautiful, just to name a few), but can schizo be added to the long list of adjectives? According to the singer’s recent interview with radio personality Ryan Seacrest, Underwood’s confident, focused persona may just be an illusion.

“I’m a little schizo when it comes to making an album — in a good way,” confesses Underwood, speaking on the making of her latest chart-topping album, ‘Blown Away.’ “I feel like there’s something for everyone.”

Despite the project’s lyrical departure from her previous work, the singer says there really is not a focused theme for the album. “There really is no particular theme. A lot of the songs are very visual, but in different ways,” the ‘American Idol’ alum tells Seacrest. “It kind of is a rollercoaster and I definitely think I pushed things in a lot of different directions. We go a little darker. We go a little lighter. I sing songs that are a little more traditional country than I’ve ever sung before.”

Of the project’s 14 tracks, Underwood admits to having a deep, personal connection to ‘Forever Changed,’ but the singer also warns that the poignant tune may remain an obscure album track for good reason. “I’ve been talking about it so much because I think it’s the most well-written song I ever heard in my life,” says the singer. “I don’t want it to be a single because I can’t sing it. I’ve never been able to listen to it or sing and get through the whole thing.”

Even though fans may not hear ‘Forever Changed’ on the radio anytime soon, there is certainly no shortage of the singer on the airwaves. The new album’s first single, ‘Good Girl,’ is currently Top 10 on the country charts, and has sold more than 500,000 digital singles.

Underwood is promoting the release of her fourth studio album, ‘Blown Away,’ which dropped on May 1. The 14-song collection made a big debut, selling more than 267,000 copies and propelling the album to No. 1 on the country and all-genre Hot 100 chart. The strong debut makes her the second country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1 on the country albums sector.
