Carrie Underwood Announces Cry Pretty Album: Watch the Trailer!

Emotion gets the best of Carrie Underwood in all the right ways on her brand-new album Cry Pretty.

The country megastar today (April 18) announces her sixth-studio album borrows inspiration from its first single by the same name. It's a song Carrie wrote based on "exactly what [she was] feeling in that moment."

"I think 'Cry Pretty' sets the tone for the rest of the album because it's emotional and it is real, but there's also just some incredible musical moments in the song," she says in an official trailer for the album. "And I feel like those things are themes that go throughout the rest of the album."

Carrie also emphasizes the "loving and careful way" she and co-producer David Garcia constructed the songs on Cry Pretty.

"We have a lot of songs on there that are definitely emotional and kind of soulful and real and raw. There's so much love and care and heart that has gone into writing these songs, putting music to these songs."
