On September 14, fans will enter into the latest chapter of Carrie Underwood’s glowing career when the singer releases her sixth studio album, Cry Pretty. Her first project with her new label (UMG Nashville) will feature 13 songs, each of which she revealed Sunday evening.
Featured on the record will be the lead single, “Cry Pretty,” as well as her collaboration with rapper Ludacris for “The Champion.” “The Champion” will be the only partnership on the album the Oklahoma native shared recently, aside from a few musical pairings.
Like many of Underwood’s previous albums, Cry Pretty will be dramatic, though perhaps not as revenge-centric.
“I don’t think I kill anybody off on this one,” she teased to Taste of Country during WE Fest.
“There is a lot of emotion on the album, a lot of soulfulness,” she added. “We have a little fun, too.”
Fans will get a fresh taste of the album when Underwood carries the Cry Pretty-era into 2019 with a 55-date arena tour beginning in May. The tour kicks off mid-year thanks to another announcement: The singer is about to become a mother of two.
“Mike and Isaiah and I are absolutely over the moon excited to be adding a new little fish to our pond. This has just been a dream come true with album and with baby news and all that stuff. We’re just so excited and so glad that you guys can share in this with us and be a part of this with us,” she said in a video posted to Instagram.
The “Cry Pretty Tour 360″ will kick off May 1 in Greensboro, NC.
