Carrie Records Contestant Farewell Song For American Idol

“Home Sweet Home” to Be Released as a Digital Single, with a Portion of Proceeds Benefiting The Humane Society of the United States

Carrie has recorded a familiar song for the new season of American Idol. The remake of Mötley Crüe’s “Home Sweet Home” will make its debut on Idol March 11 and will air each week as the farewell theme for contestants leaving the show. “Home Sweet Home” will be available as a digital single exclusively on iTunes through March 16, when it can be purchased at online music retailers everywhere.

To support a cause very dear to Carrie’s heart, she, 19 Recordings, and Sony Music Nashville will donate a portion of the sales proceeds from “Home Sweet Home” to The Humane Society of the United States.

Carrie is a longtime supporter of The Humane Society. “I’ve always loved this song, and besides being very fitting for Idol, to me, the title is also very fitting with animal rescue and finding animals their own homes. So we felt it was important to tie the release into an amazing animal charity like The HSUS.”
