    ^Cool. Hopefully this song gets 3 nominations. Single, Collaboration and Video of the Year. Carrie may get more than two nominations this year!

    Miranda Lambert, Carrie Underwood Vault To No. 1 On Hot Country Songs | Billboard

    Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood put on an impressive display of girl power on Billboard's Hot Country Songs chart, as "Somethin' Bad" vaults 18-1 with top Streaming Gainer honors. The track also flies to the top of Country Streaming Songs (11-1) with a 506 percent gain to 4.2 million U.S. streams, according to Nielsen BDS, after its official video premiered on June 26.

    While streaming accounts for 50 percent of its Hot Country Songs chart points, "Bad" also gains in sales and airplay. It bounds 10-4 on Country Digital Songs (60,000 downloads sold, up 86 percent, according to Nielsen SoundScan), marking its best rank and sales sum since it debuted atop the sales tally dated June 7 after Lambert and Underwood had premiered the duet on the Billboard Music Awards (May 18). On Country Airplay, "Bad" bullets for a second week at its No. 25 highpoint so far (15 million impressions, up 12 percent).

    "Bad" is Underwood's 13th Hot Country Songs No. 1 and first since "Good Girl" in June 2012 (and first since the chart switched from an airplay-only methodology to encompassing airplay, sales and streaming). It's Lambert's fifth. It's the chart's first No. 1 featuring a female artist since Lambert and Keith Urban's "We Were Us" led for three weeks in November/December (her most recent No. 1 before "Bad").

    I love this article! It sums up "girl power"/"empowerment" so well - which is what this collaboration is all about. I think this is very well written and sums up why this is a win-win for both women and should be celebrated by fans of both Miranda and Carrie. Love it!

    Click the link to listen to a short interview with Miranda. She's always so nice about Carrie. You can tell how much she respects her. :-)
    I'm not sure that all fans will recognize what Miranda originally had in mind for the duet. For those that didn't pick up on the reference in that interview clip, this is the original classic song that gave her the idea (written in the '80s by Troy Seals and Max Barnes). It's performed here recently by Carrie's friends, Zach and Colton Swon (and, by the way, there are also rumours that Carrie will appear on a collaboration track on their upcoming album too. Carrie was at College with Zach, although I think a couple of years ahead)

    What Miranda seems to have wanted earlier was to write a similar song from a female perspective, and sing it with Carrie at the Opry. It was Blake who advised her to pick a rocker. I'll leave it to you to decide - but I'd still like that to happen one day!

    Please, God, let them co-write and record that type of song together in the future!

    Readers' Poll: The 10 Best Country Songs of 2014 So Far Pictures | Rolling Stone

    2. Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood, "Somethin' Bad"

    (Chris DeStefano, Brett James, Priscilla Renea) The raucous "Somethin' Bad" turned into something great, thanks in part to a 19th century hymn. In 2011, Underwood, joined by Vince Gill on guitar, belted out a goosebump-raising rendition of "How Great Thou Art" for the ACM's Girls Night Out: Superstar Women of Country TV special. Seated in the audience, Lambert was inspired to propose working with Underwood on a track for her next album, Platinum. "'Somethin' Bad' came across and it just felt like the rock & roll edge that she and I have in some of our songs put it all into perspective," Lambert told Rolling Stone Country. "I sent it to her and she said yes. It was that easy." Get ready to clear some awards-shelf space, ladies.

    I just went to the Teen Choice website and it says the second round of nominees is up for voting. Guess this is a new bunch.

    Just heard this on the radio for the first time today. Oh man I know I will catch some flack here but it didn't play well on radio. It left me feeling confused and if not for my Carrie support I would have changed the station. I think I was caught up in watching Carrie perform it live and the really great music video. Sorry

    You are certainly entitled to your opinion. Its not the best song from either of them but its fun song for me. I really like how they preform it together. The music video is awesome. They have so much fun together with this song.

    Bro Down 10 Signs Country's Maligned Trend May Be on the Decline Pictures - Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood Go Alpha Female | Rolling Stone

    Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood Go Alpha Female

    There are strong mischievous undertones to Miranda Lambert and Carrie Underwood's chart-scaling, theatrical duet "Somethin' Bad," as though, on some level, they set out to beat their male counterparts at their own hard rock game. Or at least to present their male-dominated format with a formidable, united front. Likewise, it's no coincidence that the song unfurls an over-the-top, Thelma & Louise-like tale with expendable male characters.

    Lambert herself sees both sides of the bro country fence. "It has this whole theme of party and tailgate and bonfire I love all that stuff," she tells Rolling Stone Country. "But there is so much more you can sing about and say."

    Before this thread fades away, I'd like to include a post about Spencer Cullum Jr, , the guest artist who played pedal steel guitar in the early live performances of the song. (I was reminded to do this by the photos posted yesterday in the Twitter and Instagram thread, where you can see a glimpse of him in the background, sitting behind the ladies)

    Spencer is English, and he performs his own work in a band called Steelism. He's also an in-demand session player, and has worked with Miranda before.

    One reason for recommending him is that his playing is musically Progressive, and is influenced by the Muscle Shoals sound. (Carrie has also experimented with this influence, notably on BHC and TBC). I hope both ladies consider working with him again in future, as this type of music can strengthen contemporary Country, in my opinion.

    Here's a video of him performing recently in an innovative, swampy style on MCR

    Reviving this old thread, just to give a heads-up to anyone interested - Miranda has made a recent video discussing the key duets in her career, and includes (among others) "Something Bad". I've posted the video, together with a transcript of her comments on Carrie, in the latest Miranda thread in the Music forum.
