Carrie doesn’t just make albums with a few good songs and the rest serve as a filler. She wants every single song to be a representation of the album as a whole and be able to be released as a single someday. Carrie and her team, collectively, pick songs to serve as singles, but she admits that the first single from any album is the most important.
Storyteller was produced by Jay Joyce, Mark Bright, and Zach Crowell with six of its 13 songs co-written by Carrie, including the Top-10-and-climbing record-breaking first single, “Smoke Break.” On November 4, Carrie will return for an eighth consecutive year as co-host of the CMA Awards, where she is nominated for two awards including Female Vocalist of the Year.
