Let's face it -- she has it all. The looks... The beautifully-modulated voice... hands-on experience making videos... ability to get full exposure on Sean Hannity's outlets... And that all-important hotline to God -- who of course controls radio playlists and Soundscan chart returns.
So I have issued an invitation to Carrie to let me produce an album with her. My music production credits aren't too shabby. Over the years I've produced live recordings with Sting, Pete Townshend, Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck, Donovan, Phil Collins, George Michael, Bob Geldof, Julian Lennon and the Portsmouth Sinfonia. So I think I could handle Carrie...
But what songs to record?
That's where you -- the HuffPo readers -- come in.
Please submit your suggestions.
And if you have ideas for the album title -- please share those too.
The best suggestions will be incorporated on the album -- and those who proposed the selected songs and album title will win a night IN with Carrie as she makes the video for the lead-off single.
To get you going -- here are a few titles that I'm considering:
