Carrie Underwood will release “Blown Away” as the next single from her new album by the same title. The single doesn’t ship to radio officially until July 9 but it has amassed nearly 200,000 downloads as an airplay single and according to media activity, is the top fan choice for her next single. Fans have already seen Carrie perform “Blown Away” on primetime TV with appearances on American Idol on May 3 and the 2012 Billboard Music Awards on May 20. The track was written by Josh Kear and Chris Tompkins, who also co-wrote “Before He Cheats.”
