    Carrie’s “cry” of defiance

    In this world of #MeToo, #TimesUp, Harvey Weinstein, Bill Cosby, pay discrepancies and Roe v. Wade under siege, the word “feminist” may be the new F-bomb. Amid a degree of social upheaval not seen since the ’60s, women are coming together, raising their voices, pushing for social change—and few movements today are more compelling.

    But when you scrape away all the urgency, the politics, the social change, one truth remains—humanity. In some ways, humanity is the most urgent reality of all. It scrapes the bones, gets down to the heart and leaves us reeling. It’s also the stuff that gets pushed aside in the name of more topical things.


    And so Carrie Underwood steps forward with “Cry Pretty.” Her first single for Capitol Nashville. Written with Hillary Lindsey, Lori McKenna and Liz Rose (“Girl Crush”), the femme trust turns in a tour de force that lays out the crux of a breaking point. Leave it to four women to get down to it, making “When all your mascara is going to waste” an earthquake revelation instead of a clever turn of phrase.

    The same artists, Chris McHugh and Jimmie Lee Sloas, also played on some tracks from "Storyteller" - I'm pleased that she's including some familiar good session players in her production choices. (Although the reviewer - or her type setter - hasn't quite got his name accurately, Jimmie Lee has played for Carrie right back to "Before He Cheats")

    Carrie doesn't let her pride or the social norms of the day stop her from digging down and speaking her truth. In doing this, she has helped us all! This is an amazing review!! Best ever!!!
