Carrie Underwood, “Wasted”

Carrie Underwood, “Wasted”

The fourth official country single from the mega-selling Some Hearts is also the album-opener, and it’s a strongly written declaration that life must have a purpose, or it will have been wasted. An interesting contrast between a woman leaving a relationship and a man recovering from alcoholism, my only minor criticism is that it’s a little sluggishly paced. Her vocal intensity deserved a less anemic production. Don’t they realize they’re backing up a superstar about to happen?

    she loves the song, but not Carrie. personally, I think Carrie is an asset to country music. a new generation of pop-country fusion that will really boost the genre’s profile.
