The next single off of Carrie Underwood’s Storyteller album is called “Church Bells.”
Now, I don’t know exactly how singles are usually chosen. Maybe it’s just up to Underwood, or maybe the record label does months of focus groups and quantitative research. But this time, I think her fans might have had something to do with the decision.
Underwood has posted a video of some of the tweets she received from fans about the song:

“’Church Bells’ is possibly the best song ever.”
“I sing it every day on the way to and from work.”
“’Church Bells’ by @CarrieUnderwood gives me chills every time I hear it.”
“Late to class because ’Church Bells’ had to finish before I could get outta my car.”
“’Church Bells’ is currently on repeat.”
“’Church Bells’ by Carrie Underwood is killing me on the train right now–what a song.”
“I love listening to ’Church Bells’ with the volume all the way up as I walk down the halls. Thank you for making such bomb music.”
Those are just a few of the posts she shared about the new song, written by Zach Crowell, Brett James and Hillary Lindsey.
And here’s what Underwood herself had to say about the tune, in a press release: “I love songs about strong women. I love being sucked into that story: rooting for the woman and seeing that she does something powerful that she never thought she could do. People are strongest when they’re pushed to their limits.”
