Carrie Underwood Calls on Fans for ‘Smoke Break’ Lyric Video
For fans who’ve been playing Carrie Underwood’s “Smoke Break" on repeat, but haven't quite nailed the lyrics yet, this one’s for you.
The "Smoke Break" lyric video features the words to the song scrawled across the dry desert sand, in keeping with the theme from the song’s music video, in which Underwood’s car breaks down in a western wasteland. Fan-submitted photos of everyday men and women enjoying some time to relax and get away from the stresses of life fall onto the ground around the lyrics. The images show some spending time with loved ones and some enjoying the calm of kayaking on a lake — reaping the benefits of "drinking" and "smoking" without doing either.
“Smoke Break” is the leadoff single to Underwood’s forthcoming new album Storyteller, set to release Oct. 23. It’s her fifth studio album and first all-new record release in three years. The thirteen-track album will feature six songs co-written by Underwood.
The artist has been showing up everywhere lately after her return to the spotlight after the birth of her son Isaiah, performing “Smoke Break” on the Tonight Show, headlining one of the Apple Music Festival dates and playing a free pop-up show in Atlanta.
Underwood is also slated to host the CMA Awards Nov. 4 alongside longtime co-host and buddy Brad Paisley for the eighth consecutive year. Last year, Underwood announced the sex of her baby, letting Paisley “accidentally” leak the info, so they’re going to have to come up with something big to spill this time in order to top it. Paisley says for this reason, he's thankful for 2015's Ashley Madison hack.
