Carrie Underwood Goes Pop

I stan hard for Carrie Underwood. She's one of my favourite country diva - along with Dolly and Shania - and I've been gagging for new material from her. So I was more than a little excited when "Good Girl" dropped a couple of weeks ago. At first I was startled by her shift in direction. It's not like the former American Idol was ever a traditional blue-grass singer strumming a banjo but this is a definite move towards a more radio-friendly pop sound. And I say fair play. Taylor Swift is riding the country-pop gravy train all the way to the bank and Carrie wants a slice of the pie. I just didn't expect her to snatch Tay Tay's wig this easily. "Good Girl" is a high-camp country-tinged rock/pop anthem of the highest calibre. This is what I imagine Kelly Clarkson would sound like if she recorded an album in Nashville. It's big and bold with the kind of gutsy chorus Kelegend would kill for. The video finally dropped yesterday and it's sufficient. Carrie basically looks really pretty and wears lots of different outfits. Not exactly "Run The World (Girls)" but it will do. Check it out below and download the track from iTunes now.
