Carrie Underwood releases video for new single 'Love Wins,' celebrating hope following her major accident last year
The seven-time Grammy Award winner released the official music video for her new single 'Love Wins' and her album is slated to release on September 14
Multi-platinum selling global superstar Carrie Underwood released the official music video for her new single 'Love Wins.' The album titled 'Cry Pretty' comes 10 months after her "freak accident" that left a scar on her face.
Back in November 2017, the singer fell down some stairs at her Nashville home. In January this year, Underwood, who also broke her wrist during the fall, revealed to her fans that she also suffered facial lacerations requiring 40-50 stitches. It wasn't until her performance at the 53rd Academy of Country Music Awards, which took place in April this year in Las Vegas, that Underwood showed her entire face again.
Now comes her latest music video directed by Shane Drake and written by Underwood, David Garcia and Brett James. With 'Love Wins,' Underwood is spreading hope and unity as it opens with hopeless-looking group of people plodding along a grim road on foot and they begin to brighten as they cross a bridge to enter a large clearing.
“This song is hopeful,” says Underwood, in a news release. “It’s saying no matter who you are, what you feel, what you think, we’re all human beings. We all deserve love. We all deserve respect, and we all should try to show that to one another.”
In the midst of her cross-country promotion, which includes a stop in Pittsburgh for a show with 'The Cry Pretty Tour' on October 12, 2019 at PPG Paints Arena in Pittsburgh’s Uptown, Underwood has scheduled appearances on 'The Tonight Show,' starring Jimmy Fallon for September 13, the 'Today Show Summer Concert Series' on September 14, 'CBS Sunday Morning' on September 16 and 'The Ellen Show' on September 19.
On September 20, Underwood will receive her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame and will perform at the upcoming 'iHeart Radio Music Festival' on September 22 in Las Vegas. The 'Cry Pretty' album is available from September 14.
Underwood emerged from the promise of the 2005 “American Idol” win to become a multi-media superstar. A seven-time Grammy Award winner, she has sold 64 million records worldwide and recorded 26 No. 1 singles, 13 of which she co-wrote.
Underwood is in her sixth season as the voice of primetime television’s program, 'Sunday Night Football.'
