Do you like country music? I do. I’m sure at some point on my drives down Hwy 168 you could spot me doing an embarrassing imitation of Taylor Swift, singing “I knew you were trouble when you walked in,” or singing along to Sugarland’s “Stuck Like Glue,” or Lady Antebellum’s “Need You Now.” I had never really listened to Carrie Underwood and have tickets to attend the March 5 concert at the Save Mart Center, so I decided to sample her music last Saturday. I brewed a cup of vanilla decaf, sat on my couch with Sammy, pulled up YouTube and was, you guessed it - blown away.
"Two Black Cadillac’s," tells the story of a wife and mistress meeting up at the husband’s funeral. "Before He Cheats” tells young men to be loyal or risk having their sooped up 4-wheel drive keyed (a reminder I sent to my son.) Just before I decided that all Carrie’s songs were about murder or property destruction, I came across “Jesus Take the Wheel”, a ballad that reminds us that when we think we can’t take “it” any more, whatever our “it” is, we need to give our concerns over to a higher power.
