Anyone can guess, this might be Carrie’s most loved and talked about single. Not to mention, not only this magical vocal performance, the best song in her career, also the number one song in the history of country music.

The sixth and the last track from her splendid album “Some Hearts” passes away like an “ear treat”.  Much kudos to producer Mark Bright, he brought out the sonic range of Underwood in this single, which won many hearts.

“Some Hearts” reflects the dark side of temptation and addiction and how we succumb or reconcile or do both.

Also, Carrie shines throughout the song and when she sings “… time wasted”, it’s obvious that she can bring out any emotion effortlessly.

Just before the paint could completely dry on Carrie’s nice girl persona, she took a Slugger and destroyed it to smithereens.

In this rock-type song, Carrie sounds happily vengeful, explaining how she did his paintwork, marked her name in his leather seats and so on.

To conclude, the lyrics, wisely state that Carrie likes no interference… and sounding fearless, who doesn’t like her no-mess attitude?

Carrie’s rise to the limelight was very sudden and varied across different genres, that traditional country music lovers might have suspected her love for original country music.

However, she proved them wrong with this song from her special album “Carnival Ride” that featured Randy Travis’s 1988 cult hit.

What made the single stand out was the matter that Travis recorded his voice, creating a special moment for the pair.

AlbumBlown Away
Release DateNovember 8, 2012
FormatDigital Download
GenreCountry Pop
Length4:01 (radio version), 4:58 (album version)
WritersJosh Kear, Hillary Lindsey, Carrie Underwood

Turning back time, country music has remained devoted to songs that ooze tragedy or sadness. Well, people might question the story, with the guy receiving the needed justice from the women he scorned.

Above all, this million-record album ultimately captured the lonely imagination of a cheated woman.

Also, the dark video of this track helped this song reach greater heights, which Carrie co-wrote with Lindsey and Kear.

By and large, on country Carrie, no man will ever try and mess with his love and survive to narrate the tale.

Undeniably, Carrie and Brad Paisley shared such a lovely chemistry that made fans expect an album from the duo. Moreover, the duo did not disappoint.

Again, in this song, Underwood sounds very dramatic about a love story that turns pretty lacklustre in the end. Not to mention, “Remind Me” provided all the artists such a lovely opportunity to expose their talent.

In short, the song speaks about a couple trying to find the spark of their previous relationship.

Last Name
AlbumCarnival Ride
Release DateApril 8, 2008
FormatCD Single – Digital Download
GenreCountry Rock
Length4:00
WritersCarrie Underwood, Hillary Lindsey, Luke Laird

A wow song. Just like the super hit song, “Before He Cheats”, this song reminds of the old days “Bad Carrie” type of songs. Nevertheless, she keeps her fans well on their toes right throughout.

In other words, nobody can stamp Carrie as the one song wonder. This song chronicles the tequila-heavy Vegas experience where Carrie runs away with an unknown person.

Co-written by Luke Laird, Lindsey, and Carrie, “Last Name” narrates an unexpected wedding.

Moreover, the song contains lyrics such as, “I don’t even know his last name, Oh My momma would be so ashamed, It started off, “hey cutie where you from”…

Finally, she bagged the Grammy in 2008 for this song, going with the populist opinion.
