Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - Music - BLOWN AWAY Out now ( Arista Records) Car­rie Un­der­wood will play at Tam­worth’s TRECC on June 29 and the Syd­ney Opera House on July 2.

the most suc­cess­ful con­tes­tant in his­tory) was a last chance for Un­der­wood, who was study­ing mass com­mu­ni­ca­tion and had all but given up on a fu­ture in singing.

Her post- Idol de­but al­bum, Some Hearts, was the high­est sell­ing of 2006 in the US and cer­ti­fied seven times plat­inum.

It set the bar high, but her sec­ond and third al­bums man­aged to achieve sim­i­lar chart suc­cess.

And her new, fourth al­bum, Blown Away, with its mix of up­beat coun­try pop and darker tracks, will no doubt ap­peal to her enor­mous fan base.

To­day, Un­der­wood says she lives for the mo­ment and aside from her forth­com­ing al­bum re­lease and Aus­tralian tour, the fu­ture’s a mys­tery – and she loves that.

‘‘ I try not to think too far ahead and en­joy what’s go­ing on right now,’’ she says.
