Carrie Underwood knew “Blown Away” was her song the moment she heard it from the writers. The Wizard of Oz inspired music video for the song premiered on July 31st and featured Underwood in an intense opening scene.

“When I first heard the song, I just had visions of what I wanted it to be like. And I really wanted it to be a dark Wizard of Oz in 2012 kind of thing,” she shared with CMT Insider.

Underwood played the daughter of an abusive father, and took the opportunity to display some her acting chops.

She explained, “That was a last-minute thing. We weren’t originally planning to do that, but obviously in getting in there and making the video, it would make sense that father and daughter actually interact at some point.”

Underwood gave credit to the actor who played her onscreen father for the realistic portrayal of the father and daughter scenes.

“He was such a great actor, the guy that played my dad. I felt uncomfortable, to be honest. He was that good because he was so intense and so angry. … There was no script. We went in and acted out the scene the way we thought it might happen. And I actually left with bruises on my arm from when he would grab me and I would pull away. I had finger marks on my arm when I left at the end of the day, so I was like, ‘Wow.’ … It was intense. I wasn’t just imagining it, it was really intense.”

When CMT asked about the potential controversy the video may stir, Underwood insisted that she did not plan for any of it to be controversial.

“That’s not what we were aiming for at all. I try to stay away from controversy in any form or fashion. It was just such a great story and such a mini-movie, listening to the song, and we really wanted to do it justice in the video,” she said.

Underwood’s tiny bruises are nothing compared to the great feedback she has received.
