    Songwriter Spotlight: Luke Laird

    Songwriter Spotlight: Luke Laird | Music News | Rolling Stone

    Carrie Underwood, "Last Name" (Laird, Hillary Lindsey, Underwood)
    "I think (Carrie) was talking to a guy at some awards show after-party, and she told us all about him in the writers' room and said, 'I don't even know his last name.' And I looked at Hillary (Lindsey) and said, 'Yep, that's what we've gotta write!' We wrote it really fast. It was so funny to write this story as a country song. Carrie is one of those stream-of-consciousness people who just starts rattling off lyrics… And a vocalist like her, it immediately sounds awesome! We fleshed out all the lyrics and didn't have the music done, so it was almost like a rap song."

    Love that so many songwriters are giving kudos to Carrie for her writing ability. Doesn't hurt that this one was for RS. Thanks for posting.

    Love hearing about her writing stories. Carrie has been writing more with each album. Her albums start to get more experimental when Carrie writes more.
