    Before He Cheats

    So I learned that the writers of Before He Cheats had more lyrics for the song that weren't added in to the final cut.

    I love those lyrics so much, I would die to have Carrie sing them.

    Ha, ha! Thanks for posting that.

    I particularly love Carrie's first three singles - for both themes and musical style, the variety they showed was hard to beat - and I prefer them to any sequence of singles from her second and third albums. I wish I'd known about Carrie in that fresh era - but I only heard those songs in retrospect. My reaction then would have been like Josh Kear's - "Dude, that's awesome - but who's Carrie Underwood?". I only started to hear about her when some people I followed on MySpace - especially Ashley Monroe - started lauding her praises.

    Josh Kear's extra lyrics would not have worked for Mainstream radio - but it was a badass song, and I can imagine Carrie having a laugh over them in private. People quickly built their own perceptions around Carrie, which can sometimes tend to over-simplify the likely complexity of her persona. She was, after all, the one who picked that song, and the one who asked for more.
    The bit I think she might legitimately have kept, at least in live performance, was the "Damn straight, not on me" towards the end, as that adds emphasis to the central character's determination.

    Hilarious! that would have been cool if she was actually bold enough to keep those lyrics.
