Carrie Underwood’s “Blown Away” doesn’t leave you with many music-video options.

You don’t make a generic performance video, you don’t go off onto tangents or new scenery; your only options, really, are adding a couple inobtrusive wind-machine scenes or an extra layer of metaphor (in this case, The Wizard of Oz.)
