Thus Carrie Underwood’s “Good Girl,” which is the new No. 1 song on MusicRow’s CountryBreakout Chart. Carrie casts herself in the role of jilted ex-lover trying to warn an innocent girl about this no good dude and how badly he will mess her up if she sticks around. In the song’s video, Carrie plays both roles for a Black Swan/White Swan effect. Carrie co-wrote “Good Girl” with Chris DeStefano and Ashley Gorley.
From its release in late February, “Good Girl” has been an event. The lead single from Carrie’s fourth album Blown Away, the song has already been certified Gold for downloads exceeding 500,00 units. Blown Away was released May 1 and debuted at No. 1 with more than 267,000 units sold. Carrie and her husband Mike Fisher (of the Nashville Predators) also recently sat down with Oprah Winfrey for the couple’s first TV interview together. See videos from the appearance here.
