I’m still sticking with my proclamation a few years ago that Carrie Underwood is the most successful female country singer of all time.
And really a big time artist. She writes many of her own hits and she’s been selling just as many records as anyone. It’s really incredible and it all started back in those American Idol days. And she’s proud of those days as she should be.
Let’s check out this new single.
Heartbeat – Carrie Underwood
Carrie Underwood has always been able to perfectly blend country and pop. She’s certainly a country artist. She has some of that twang, but her voice has also fit well in the pop world. I think that’s why she’s had so much success no matter how people perceive her. Nobody really looks at labeling her. They just sit back and enjoy her music.
Alright, so that was a longwinded approach to saying that this song is familiar while still being new from Carrie. It sounds like the pop-country hits she’s had for the last decade. It seems like you’ve heard it before, but also seems fresh.
And it’s a great love song. It’s about the love you feel with someone without really needing to say anything. You just feel it when you’re together. It’s powerful and I don’t know if everyone gets to feel this way about someone.
So it’s a pretty cool lyric in that way. Two people going out alone together and getting away from it all. It could be new love, but it could also be people that have been together for a long time, but they still want to get away and be alone and just feel each other.
Another good one from Carrie.
