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.
