Carrie Underwood teases behind-the-scenes look into her latest single 'Cry Pretty'
After releasing the video of the title track to her new album 'Cry Pretty', Carrie Underwood is now teasing her fans with the behind-the-scene glimpses in the new trailer.
Carrie Underwood has released a behind-the-scenes trailer to the new music video for her latest single, 'Cry Pretty'. The seven-time Grammy Award winner is coming up with her sixth studio album, 'Cry Pretty', almost three years after her 2015 album 'Storyteller'. The album is set to release on September 14 and is her first studio album on Capitol Records Nashville.
The Checotah native is seen guiding her viewers through the making of the video as she shoots inside the Noelle Hotel in Nashville and the Nashville Municipal Auditorium, where she is seen performing in front of a live audience. Underwood says about the song, "The song and the video are just kind of when you can’t put on that brave face anymore. It’s gotta come out sometime. When it does, all you can do is just let it out [sic]." In the video directed by Randee St. Nicholas, Carrie is seen sobbing in private and shining in public. There is also a brief endearing moment when Carrie kisses her toddler son, Isaiah, on the sets of the live concert.

Carrie had released the video of 'Cry Pretty' back in May, and the fourth season-winner of Fox's 'American Idol' has managed to look quite pretty while crying out her glittering tears.
Towards the end of the trailer, Carrie says, "Yes I always cry glitter. It's me. It's weird, genetic." The singer penned down the song along with Hillary Lindsey, Liz Rose, and Lori McKenna - the trio who write under the name Love Junkies. The trio is best known for the Little Big Town smash 'Girl Crush', and living up to that standard, 'Cry Pretty' is nothing less than an emotional overload that leads to smudged eyes.
'Cry Pretty' got its first nationally televised performance during the 53rd Annual Academy of Country Music in Las Vegas which marked Carrie's first performance ever since her fall which compelled her to miss out on Oklahoma Hall of Fame induction, as she had to get a surgery on a broken wrist and was left with facial injuries needing between 40-50 stitches. 'Cry Pretty' sounds like a modern country-rock waltz which is more of a slow-burn confession on Carrie's side as the singer's voice explodes with impassioned sentiments. This emotion is signified by Carrie's melting sparkling mascara, the look which is the cover of her upcoming album.
Carrie mentioned in a statement: "At this point in my career, I feel stronger and more creative than ever. I think you can hear that in this new album. It’s emotional, it’s soulful, it’s real, and we also have some fun on there too. I hope everyone loves it as much as I have loved making it." She debuted the title track during a performance at the 2018 ACM Awards.
