Good girl Carrie is back.
Carrie Underwood fans were ready for this one. This is one of the most anticipated singles off one of the most anticipated albums of the year. Here it is…Good Girl by Carrie Underwood.
Good Girl – Carrie Underwood
Carrie is a rocker.
What else can you say? The chick rocks and her fans love her for it. I’m here to say the guys love it as well. I respect the hell out of Carrie Underwood and that dates back all the way to her first audition on Idol. Now she’s a huge star and really has her formula down.
If this was 1988, Carrie Underwood would have the #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 charts. She would be right up there with Sweet Child O’ Mine and Livin’ On A Prayer. I love that country has blended a little bit with those rocking songs of the ’80s.
Carrie has done her part to usher in the rock era. She’s right there with any woman in any genre that’s bringing the rock back into the mainstream. Sure, this song isn’t traditional country, but I’m a country fan and I love this kind of song. There is room for variety.
Good Girl covers a familiar topic for Carrie. She has this side of her that is suspicious of the guys. It would seem she’s been burned a few times in the past. She writes about it in her songs and Good Girl is the same way.
In this song we have a bad boy trying to pull one over once again on the good girl. Carrie is the narrator in the song trying to explain to the poor girl what is about to happen. You can actually see this song making a lot of chronological sense in Carrie’s catalog. She was burned in Before He Cheats and Last Name. She was there with her regret in Undo It. Now she’s there to be there for her good girl friend.
Good Girl is obviously going to shoot straight to #1 on the country charts and probably into the top five on the pop charts. Carrie is still the biggest star in country today. She’s been away for about a year even though she had the #1 duet with Brad Paisley. She didn’t lose a step.
Carrie is back.
It’s time to launch the good girl back into the country world.
Chart Estimate: #1 (How could you not say #1?)
