New Carrie Underwood Single ‘Cry Pretty’ Out Today

Carrie Underwood released her debut single for Capitol Nashville, “Cry Pretty,” today. The song, which she co-produced with David Garcia, is the first track from her new Capitol Nashville project, which is due out later this year.

She penned the song with “Love Junkies” Hillary Lindsey, Liz Rose, and Lori McKenna, and will debut the new song on the upcoming ACM Awards on CBS on Sunday night (April 15) in Las Vegas.

She described the song to fans on her website:

“The first single is a song I love so much and can’t wait to share with you. It’s called “Cry Pretty” and I wrote it with three incredible women: Hillary Lindsey, Liz Rose, and Lori McKenna, who also write under the name Love Junkies. I joined one of their writing sessions last year to see if we could come up with some magic…and we did! The title refers to when emotions take over and you just can’t hold them back. It really speaks to a lot of things that have happened in the past year and I hope when you hear it, you can relate those feelings to those times in your life. It’s emotional. It’s real. And it ROCKS! I’m so excited I’ll be performing it live on the ACM Awards this weekend, so I hope you’ll all tune in to see it!”
