Carrie has been rolling with hit singles for her entire career and her next one sounds like another smash hit. This one isn’t for the light hearted, though. This one is about a serious topic that has been kind of a running topic in some of Carrie’s previous hits.
Check this one out if you haven’t already heard it and let’s see what it’s all about.
Church Bells – Carrie Underwood
This one has definitely got some grit to it. You kind of know right from the opening that it’s going to have a story for you that won’t be your normal bedtime story.
As the story unfolds you realize that it’s about a women that perhaps married for money, but maybe she thought it would have been for love. However it worked out she married a rich oilman and things seemed to be going well to those on the outside, but on the inside the guy turned out to be real bad news.
She would beat her and abuse her and even with all that money she couldn’t take it anymore. It was no life to live and it seems like it came down to him or her and she decided to take matters into her own hands.
Pretty powerful topic to take on, but unfortunately it’s something that’s part of society. Songs like this can help bring awareness and Carrie can definitely pull off a song like this.
Great song again from Carrie. She’s still one of country’s best vocalists and artists of all time, male or female.
