See Carrie Underwood’s Smoldering ‘Smoke Break’ Video

Curated by

 

As Underwood drives around the desert in an old pickup truck, the video glimpses back and forth to a diner, featuring a hardworking barista and a white-collar patron who both look like they have had a long week. Carrie Underwood’s upcoming fifth studio album is called Storyteller , and the video for its lead single casts her in the role of one — albeit one who walks through the Mojave Desert in slow-mo, looking sizzling hot in fringed boots and denim shorts the size of a postage stamp. Written by Underwood with frequent collaborators Hillary Lindsey and Chris DeStefano, “Smoke Break” is an ode to hard-working folks who can use a respite, even if it doesn’t involve tobacco.

 

 

  • The Randee St. Nicholas-helmed video begins with Underwood driving through the dusty, sepia-washed desert in a vintage Ford truck, with only the radio and her guitar as companions.
  • It’s the country music equivalent of Bo Derek running through the surf in the movie, 10 — although more incredible because it’s been a mere six months since the seven-time Grammy-winner gave birth to her first child.
  • Released as a single last Thursday, “Smoke Break” has already broken the record for the highest number of single-week adds in the history of the trade publication, Country Aircheck.
