Smoking hot mama Carrie Underwood has released her music video for her new single “Smoke Break” and it is really inspiring for many reasons. The song’s message is conveyed through the stories of two characters, a working mom and a first-generation college student. The video shows the characters working hard for their goals and families while admitting that, while they don’t smoke or drink, sometimes they just need to step away for a “smoke break”.
She said, “I don’t drink”
“But sometimes I need a stiff drink”
“Sipping from a high, full glass”
“Let the world fade away”
She said, “I don’t smoke”
“But sometimes I need a long drag”
“Yeah, I know it might sound bad”
“But sometimes I need a smoke break”
The second reason for inspiration is how AMAZING Carrie Underwood looks in the video. Just 6 months ago she gave birth to her son Isaiah, and it is safe to say the singer is back to her post-baby body.
“Smoke Break” is the lead single from Carrie Underwood’s fifth studio album, Storyteller. The track, written with Hillary Lindsey and Chris DeStefano, premiered on August 20, 2015 at country radio and was digitally released on August 21.
Underwood announced “Smoke Break” and accompanying album Storyteller in a video posted to Facebook, in which she also described its meaning:
“The song itself is … one of those story songs that I feel like everyone can relate to about how life is so hectic and it’s so nice if and when you actually get to kind of step away for a second. We all need that time to ourselves, to get to take a break.” Underwood says.
According to USA Today, the track came to life while getting stuck working on another of the tracks on Storyteller:
“We were writing and kept taking breaks to go outside because we were getting a little stuck on a song we were already working on. It was so beautiful outside, that we had a hard time focusing so we decided to write a song about taking breaks! “Smoke Break” seemed like a great title, so we ran with it!” Underwood explains.
