Country radio stations all over the world received a big, unexpected surprise today: a new Carrie Underwood song. The uptempo “Smoke Break,” penned by the country superstar with longtime collaborators Hillary Lindsey (“Jesus, Take the Wheel,” “Two Black Cadillacs”) and Chris DeStefano (“Good Girl,” “Something in the Water”), is what she calls “an anthem for every hard-working person,” with lyrics about escaping life’s many stresses. Carrie Underwood Receives ‘Little Toy Guns’ Salute “We were writing and kept taking breaks to go outside because we were getting a little stuck on a song we were already working on,” Underwood answers when asked by a fan via Facebook how the song came about. “It was so beautiful outside that we had a hard time focusing, so we decided to write a song about taking breaks! ‘Smoke Break’ seemed like a great title, so we ran with it!” “Smoke Break” was produced by Jay Joyce, best known for his work with Eric Church and Little Big Town, and marks Underwood’s first time working with the boundary-pushing producer. The song will appear on the Grammy winner’s upcoming fifth studio album, Storyteller , due out October 23rd, as she announced in a video chat today.
