Carrie Underwood a Queen fan
Carrie Underwood is a huge fan of bands who are not afraid of ''throwing in the unexpected'' such as Queen and My Chemical Romance.

Carrie Underwood is a huge fan of Queen and My Chemical Romance.

The 'Good Girl' country singer doesn't confine herself to listening to or playing only one type of music, and on her new album, 'Blown Away', she wanted to capture some of their huge-sounding bombastic styling herself.

She said: ''I grew up listening to Queen. They were no stranger to throwing in the unexpected and something a little more dramatic.

''When you look at like, the modern version of that, it's My Chemical Romance - they're one of my favourites.

''On 'Blown Away' there really is something for everybody, it's a big mix of influences.

''It's heart is in country music, and the rest of it is all over. Every other kind of music.''

Carrie has another track which she likens to Irish rockers U2 mixed with reggae.

She added: ''The song 'Blown Away' has such a cool U2-feel going on with the burning guitars.

''It doesn't have a whole lot of the standard country music instruments on it. It's very epic and it's very dramatic.

''I've heard the word 'reggae' used to describe it, but I've never thrown that word out on my own.''
