Carrie Underwood Studio Album 7

Even if an album isn't ready until early 2022, I am hopeful for a lead single earlier than this fall for two reasons:
1) This is currently the longest break from country radio in Carrie's career, meaning she has never gone this long before without a single promoted to country radio (including album singles and collaborations). I think a break is good after the way radio reacted to Cry Pretty's singles, but I would imagine her label would be eager to get her back on airwaves with a new single.
2) Singles are taking longer than ever in recent memory to climb the charts, unless your name is Luke Combs. The typical 20ish weeks to peak during the Storyteller era can now be 30-40 weeks even for big named stars, and much much longer for newer artists. The CP single came 5 months before the album, and with Carrie's recent shaky standing on country radio, I don't think a lead single 6-7 months before an album is out of question. If you want 4 singles from an album these days, and your first name isn't Luke or Thomas, you need to start early.

I hope she comes out with a catchy fun single for the next album. Something radio won’t be able to resist playing. I want a smash!

Also, I listened to the leaked songs. You can tell they are demos or unfinished, but still cool to hear Carrie’s voice on new country songs. Nice little surprise for me tonight as I was looking through this thread.

It seems like CU9 new single won’t drop until 2022. My Savior is still selling well and she’s likely to push for “Favourite Time of Year” as single this Christmas around (Late Oct-Dec period). If it is based on the above, somehow I do see a potential conflict in timeline.

A Christmas single doesn't really have much bearing on a regular country single, in my opinion. I agree, I don't think we will see a single until at earliest, early next year, but for I feel that for different reasons.
