    Carrie Underwood Reveals Surprising Story Behind Hit 'Last Name'

    Carrie Underwood Reveals Surprising Story Behind Hit 'Last Name'

    By Wendy Geller
    Our Country

    This week, Nashville served as host to the megawatt benefit concert "We're All for the Hall," a special show for the Country Music Hall of Fame spearheaded by Keith Urban and Vince Gill. Carrie Underwood was just one of the stars on the bill, performing Dolly Parton's "I Will Always Love You," as well as her own 2007 hit "Last Name."

    Regarding the latter tune: Do you know what actually inspired it? Although it's hard to believe, a short-lived fling was the catalyst for the Grammy-winning single.

    Take it from Underwood herself. The superstar told the "All for the Hall" crowd the story behind the song before performing it.

    "Before I met my beautiful, wonderful, perfect hockey husband [Nashville Predator Mike Fisher], I had met this guy. I got together with [songwriters] Hillary Lindsey and Luke Laird to write, and we were goofing around like we always do. I was telling them about this guy I met. They asked who he was, and I said, 'Y'all! I don't even know his last name!'"

    She continued: "We hadn't even dated or anything and it didn't turn out the way this song did, but I said, 'We need to turn this mess into a song!' And this is it."

    I don't buy it. Carrie's wild Vegas nights are well-documented. And when she hits the booze...

    Do people tend to know people's last names though?
