Few country artists have made a point to keep the tradition of the country story song—a thriving form in the '60s and '70s that brought us chart-topping hits like "Ode to Billie Joe," "Harper Valley PTA" and "The Night The Lights Went Out in Georgia"—like Carrie Underwood. Carrie's songs have always had strong narratives, dating back to her early hits about cheaters and All-American Girls, but now that she's moved on to crafting full-on mini-movies with her lyrics, the path of her transition from America's Sweetheart to country diva elder stateswoman is clear. New single "Two Black Cadillacs" is one of the best of these, the vidid title image used as a jumping-off point for a mysterious murder ballad that Bobbie Gentry would be proud to call her own.
