Editorial Reviews

2009 release from the four-time Grammy Award winner and former American Idol winner. Carrie has come a long way since her AI days including selling more than 10 million albums, garnering ACM and CMA awards and becoming the first Country artist in history to achieve 10 #1 singles from her first two albums. To top that all off, she was also recently inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame! This 2009 album includes the first single 'Cowboy Casanova'.

Customer Reviews

Cowboy Casanova, Undo It, and Songs Like This just make you want to sing along.

I couldn't wait for Play On to come out so i pre-ordered it and when i got it, i listened to it right away and fell in love with it.

Of course, who doesn't love Carrie Underwood who has the most beautiful voice and great song choices.

Not since Shania Twain bared her midriff, and gained legions of fans outside of the country music scene, has there been a disc that blatantly wears its intentions on its (album) sleeve. Literally, the songwriting and producing credits are littered with a who's who of names that are ruling the charts in every genre. And with a longer listening, this album has to be Underwood's most focused. The melodies are smoother, "This Time" with its stuttering drum just below the mix and harmony is just so breezy and effective it leaves you with no choice but to tap your toes and sing-along to the chorus.

But that is what the whole album is built on, an inner arena feeling. It has a much fuller sound than carnival ride. It's grander, and oozing in bombast, "Cowboy Casanova" & "Songs Like This" give you just enough fiddle and twang to satisfy without purely catering to a pop audience. With such stellar production it is almost too easy to ignore the real star in all of this: Carrie Underwood. Her vocals and interpretation has grown, shockingly, from her last disc, which found her range expanding. "Someday When I Stop Loving You" & "Temporary Home," brings to mind the best of Martina McBride, heartbreaking beauty at its best.

Carrie Underwood is going for an even broader radio sound, but who isn't in country music today. Yes, there are a bigger array of genre bending producers that bring elements of R&B, Rock, etc., but it works so brilliantly that you can't fault her for it. If Underwood wasn't delivering such honest delivery and conviction this would be a four star disc, but she brings so much to the table vocally that is impossible to not feel that she has given her all to this project, you can feel her pushing for you to enjoy this disc. There is a faith and purity to this woman's delivery that brings to mind the best artists from Cline to Womack (whose latest CD isn't garnering as much attention as it deserves). Country music -- heck, music in general needs her.

I am a huge Carrie Underwood fan and was filled wih high anticipation for the release of her 3rd cd PLAY ON. As with any of my favorite performers I always listen the first time with a critical ear and upon first play I was not sure what I thought. I've now played it at least 5 more times and have certainly developed some feelings about this release. First, I must say that I think it is still shocking just what a true broad range Carrie has both with musicality and emotional delivery when tackling a song. And when a listener finds themselves listening to a new release real close with a critical ear that means you know you are listening to major talent and have expectations.

I agree that CARNIVAL RIDE was an advancement over the crital debut SOME HEARTS but I felt in some ways it did follow the same formula. On this, Carrie's 3rd venture we really see her taking creative chances and stepping out over that small country line. I always wonder who decides what is country, what is country pop and when is it a crossover. Country pop and crossover are often used as negative terms and to me any true artist needs to take chances as they spread their message and define their identity thru music. For me, Carrie Underwood possesses a natural, raw voice that delivers openly and honestly whether soaring with the high notes of a belter or caressing a gentle note of a ballad. Whatever she sings she brings her emotional interpretation and that honesty rings true. To me this is what country music is. Songs that tell stories and speak of strong feelings. Yes, some songs may lean more towards pop but you may be able to take the girl out of country but you can't take the country out of the girl.

I first got this album on black friday last year. At first, I didn't find much on it that I really liked. I thought her first two albums were better, but I'll tell you what. This album really grows on you when you give it a chance. I would say now that its my favorite album of hers so far. With it on sale today, I would say you have nothing to lose!

Carrie's new album is very solid from top to bottom, and it contains quite a wide range of music. From pop-country crossover hits like "Cowboy Casanova" and "Undo It" -- to classic country ballads like "Look At Me", and "Someday When I Stop Loving You". Carrie's vocals on the ballads are nothing short of breathtaking, and she also co-wrote over half the songs on this album -- more than she has ever written before. There seems to be more slow ballads on this CD than her previous releases, but they are very strong and enjoyable if you're a Carrie Underwood fan!

"What Can I Say" is a super powerful future single, with a very strong vocal performance. "Mama's Song" has gorgeous vocals, and very sweet lyrics. "This Time" and "Quitter" are fun, relaxed, and nice simple songs. "Change" is a catchy song, with lyrics that make you think about how we live, and what we give. The title track - "Play On" - is very radio friendly, super catchy, and will likely be another huge hit.

To me, "Temporary Home" is the highlight of the CD...and it's one of my favorite songs that Carrie has ever recorded. This is simply an amazing gem -- lyrically, vocally, and acoustically. Carrie co-wrote the song -- and she says that the idea for the whole song just came to her 'in a flood' one morning after reading a book called 'The Purpose Driven Life'. "Temporary Home" has a message that a lot of us can relate to, and I think it's easily the standout single on this album.

Overall, I think this is an outstanding album, and it will be very successful once again for Carrie. Another 4 or 5 #1 singles should be likely on here! I would highly recommend picking up a copy of the album for yourself -- and it would make a great Christmas gift for any Carrie fans that you know!

Cowboy Casanova is a POP SONG
Well, maybe if Taylor wins, Kanye West will come on the stage again and go "Hold up, hold up, I'm very happy for you and I'll let you finish, but Cowboy Casanova is one of the greatest songs of all time!" or something.

And I guess you could call CC a "pop song" with definite... Read More

Play On Track list
Woohoo! Thirteen songs again! Twelve would've been fine, but for some reason, I love it when an artist puts out a new album with over twelve tracks on it. I'm not sure which song I'm most intrigued about hearing. The title track, most likely, and maybe Temporary Home and Quitter. I hope we get... Read More

Play On sneak peek
Is this her third album or is this a departure of some sorts?

I see that it's under broadway and vocal pop and not country so that worries me....

Cover looks great though and she's writing more. :)
