Carrie Underwood is the queen of dropping subtle — but telling — hints when she’s working on a new project, and the powerhouse artist seemingly dropped her latest clue that something is in the works. Underwood posted a new picture on her social media channels, showing her singing in the studio. The photo is simply captioned: “So, I did a thing…”
That post has fans begging for answers, dropping comments that they’re “SO EXCITED” about the possibility of a new album. Aside from a few singles and collaborations (including “Stretchy Pants” and “Only Us,” a duet with Dan + Shay for the Dear Evan Hansen soundtrack), Underwood released her holiday album, My Gift, in 2020 with a special edition in 2021, and My Savior, her debut gospel album last year. Underwood’s last country album was Cry Pretty, which she unveiled in 2018.
The “Southbound” singer has dropped hints on her social media channels before, including when she responded to Jason Aldean's cryptic tweet with an emoji of a girl raising her hand. Aldean had tweeted asking who fans thought his new duet partner would be, and that's when Underwood confirmed that she teamed up with him on the reigning Academy of Country Music Awards Single of the Year, “If I Didn't Love You.” Underwood also said she was “so excited” to share her song with Dan + Shay — Dan Smyers and Shay Mooney — after the duo teased their collaboration in August of 2021.
Underwood seemed to indicate that new music was on the way earlier this week, when she spoke with media outlets at the 57th ACM Awards in Las Vegas on Monday night (March 7). When asked whether fans can expect a new album and tour this year, the award-winning artist said, without revealing too much: “I mean, I’m always working on something. Obviously we can’t spill too many beans right now, but my fans know what I mean when I say ‘soon.’ Soon. They actually hate it when I use that word because they’re like, ‘what does that mean?!’ But (I’ve) been busy, for sure.”
