Carrie Underwood isn’t in Oklahoma anymore. Her dramatic new video, “Blown Away,” channels The Wizard of Oz, starring Carrie as a modern day Dorothy, complete with red shoes and a blue and white checkered shirt. The daughter of an alcoholic, she bravely takes cover as a twister rips away the life she once knew.
As the video ends and the storm clouds disappear, Carrie emerges from the cellar into a bright new world where she’s free of her father’s abuse. Directed by Randee St. Nicholas, the video was filmed in a rural area outside of Nashville, Tenn.

Fans in San Antonio, Texas were able to get a sneak peek after their local radio station, KAJA, won a nationwide contest to host a Private World Premiere of the video by receiving the most listener votes. Carrie will kick off the North American leg of her Blown Away Tour in Manchester, New Hampshire on September 14 with special guest Hunter Hayes.
