Written by Chris Tompkins and Josh Kear, “Blown Away” was the second single from the superstar’s fourth studio album of the same name. The song tells the chilling story of a young girl who locks herself in a cellar as her alcoholic father remains passed out on the couch upstairs as a tornado ravages through their home.
“She heard those sirens screaming out/ Her daddy laid there passed out on the couch/ She locked herself in the cellar/ Listened to the screaming of the wind/ Some people called it taking shelter/ She called it sweet revenge,” Underwood sings on the second verse.
“Blown Away” went on to become Underwood’s 13th chart-topping hit.
Following the release of the song, Underwood debuted a cinematic, Wizard Of Oz-inspired music video to accompany the soaring track.
The clip brings the song’s storyline to life and features several nods to the iconic film, such as a plaid shirt, a tiny dog and red shoes.
