Checotah native Carrie Underwood plays a vengeful woman scorned in the dramatic music video for her new single “Two Black Cadillacs,” which has a twist at the end that pays homage to a movie that I love. I won’t say more because I wouldn’t dream of spoiling it for you!
Directed by P.R. Brown and produced by Steve Lamar for Lamar Brothers, the thriller “Two Black Cadillacs” was filmed in the Nashville area. The single is already an airplay hit as it races up country charts, and is currently No. 11 on Country Aircheck and No. 13 on Billboard. “Two Black Cadillacs” was written by Underwood, Josh Kear and Hillary Lindsey, and is the third release from the superstar’s platinum-selling “Blown Away” album.
“Blown Away” made history last spring by debuting at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Country Albums Chart, making the 2005 “American Idol” winner only the second country artist in the 47-year history of the chart to have each of their first four albums debut at No. 1. “Blown Away” also debuted at No. 1 on the all-genre Billboard 200 chart, making the Oklahoma native only the second country artist in history to have three consecutive albums debut at No. 1.
Since releasing her debut, “Some Hearts,” in 2005, the 19 Recordings/Arista Nashville recording artist has sold more than 15 million albums with “Some Hearts,” 2007’s “Carnival Ride,” 2009’s “Play On,” and 2012′s “Blown Away,” making her the best-selling American Idol in the U.S. She’s accumulated 16 No. 1 singles, seven of which she co-wrote, and became the first country artist in history and the only “American Idol” winner ever to achieve 10 No. 1 singles from their first two albums. She is a five-time Grammy winner, a two-time Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year, a three-time Country Music Association and ACM Female Vocalist winner, and a proud member of the Grand Ole Opry.
