Changing the Subject

Does it bother anyone else that Carrie Underwood followed up Jesus Take the Wheel with Before He Cheats? I mean are you a choir girl or trailer trash - you MUST decide.

Thank you, so glad to knwo this bothers others as well.
The fact that the songs appear on her debut album is also a bit of a problem. I mean let's come up with a topic/theme/ pattern and follow it.
Jesus take the wheel while I slash the tires of my cheating ex and carve my name in the leather...
Now the two are connected!

Also getting caught up by reading past few posts.
I am sorry you are going through this, but your comments are so damn funny.
But, theologiclaly speaking with the not praying for somethign nice...
Is it wrong for me to pray that the crazed psychopath B--ch from Church of My Previous Employmnet get an ingrown toenail?
I mean that wouldn't necessarily kill her (nor make her stronger!) and it would make me feel better.
So, it is wrong to pray for soemone to have a toenail to grow crooked?

Are you kidding me? "Jesus Freaking Trailer Trash" describes all eighteen of my first cousins on the hillbilly side--even the ones with teeth!

What I want to know about "Before He Cheats" is how Carrie knows exactly what the cheating guy is up to in the bar minute by minute. Sounds like the voice of experience to me.

And of course, if you turned the song around and had a guy sing it, imagine the kerfluffle.

I second Cheese's description of some of my relatives. How did you know?

Dave & I saw her perform last year when she opened for Brad Paisley. We noticed that when she sang that song, most of the female fans were really getting into singing along, including really enjoying making the motions of putting "the Louisville slugger through both headlights."

I am so lost - is this a song or something?

yes, but I never liked Jesus take the Wheel in the first place. The lyrics didn't seem authentic
