Seven years after capturing the "American Idol" crown and becoming a household name, Carrie Underwood continues to blow away country and pop music fans alike. The singer's fourth album, "Blown Away" (out May 1), follows three best-selling full-lengths -- 2005's "Some Hearts," 2007's "Carnival Ride" and 2009's "Play On" -- and has already yielded a Top 10 single on the Country Songs chart, "Good Girl." And next month, Underwood will bring her voice to the 2012 Billboard Music Awards, performing live at the May 20 ceremony.
Before Underwood's hotly anticipated fourth album was released, she sat down with Billboard for a Live Q&A on April 27. She answered fan questions live on camera, discussed her album and chatted about life on the road.
