Carrie Underwood celebrated “Smoke Break,” her 22nd No. 1 song (12th as a songwriter) with an ASCAP and BMI-hosted soiree at Nashville restaurant The Sutler.

The song was co-written by Underwood (BMI), Hillary Lindsey (ASCAP) and Chris DeStefano (ASCAP). This is a back-to-back No. 1 for the writing trio, who also penned Underwood’s “Little Toy Guns.”

Among those honoring the tune were ASCAP’s Beth Brinker, BMI’s Jody Williams, BMG’s Chris Oglesby, Sony/ATV’s Josh Van Valkenburg, CMA’s Brandi Simms, CRB’s Bill Mayne, and Underwood’s manager Ann Edelblute (The HQ). Ron Cox of Avenue Bank announced a donation to Underwood’s C.A.T.S. Foundation.

“Smoke Break,” and the rest of the Storyteller project, was one of the first to be worked to radio under new Sony Music Nashville head Randy Goodman.

Goodman recalled the urgency and weight given to the project. “The third day I was at Sony, I get a call [from Ann Edelblute]. She said, as only Ann can do, ‘Do you know we have an album scheduled on October 23?’ And it was about July 15 at the time, which in record launch time is tomorrow. An hour later, I walked up the street [to Ann’s office], we sat down an immediately began listening to what became the Storyteller album. And it was both exciting and terrifying at the same time, because I’m new to this job, this is a new team, and we are going to launch if not specifically the most important record of the year for us, and it’s Carrie Underwood and all eyes are going to be on us and we wanted to do a great job. So it was one of those things that broke us all in in a quick and effective way.”
