MegaPick: Carrie Underwood, ‘Cry Pretty’
Get our full review of Carrie Underwood's new album and make sure to get your copy if you haven't already!
The wait is over - Carrie Underwood’s new album is here. The twelve-track LP addresses topics of love, acceptance, the current political atmosphere, and more.
Of course, one of our favorite songs on the album is still “Love Wins.” Underwood explained the song, “I do think that we as humans are inherently good and we need to remember that. Because we’re different, that doesn’t make somebody else bad, it just makes us different. We wanted that song to be hopeful and to maybe make somebody stop and think about that.” Read more about “Love Wins” here and watch the music video below:
Another important track on the album is “The Bullet,” which addresses gun violence and the impact it has. It’s clear that Underwood just hopes for happiness and love, rather than specifically addressing the topic on a political level, “It’s a beautiful and powerful song, and I thought for a long time whether or not I was the one to deliver its message. Unfortunately, too many events have happened and not just on a grand scale . . . Any word I say right now is gonna be wrong [laughs].”
