Audio / Carrie Underwood explains why she named her new album, Cry Pretty.


Carrie Underwood (Cry Pretty album title) 1 OC: …out of my head. :41
“I felt like that song was as good a representation as I was going to get as an example of what was to come on the rest of the album. So, it’s really hard to sum up the album in one theme or one sound, but I felt like that song, it was like okay, it’s different. I don’t know, we decided to break some rules, and I felt like that was a really good representation of that. I could see everything visually. I could just kind of see the album cover in my head and all the things we could do with it as far as pictures and video and tour and stuff like that, once it just popped into my head that this should be the title I kind of couldn’t get that out of my head.“
