Carrie Underwood‘s “Something in the Water” is the first single off of her upcoming compilation album, Greatest Hits: Decade #1, in commemoration of the Country star’s 10 tremendous years in the music industry. This co-written track is a deeply spiritual gospel-country-power pop ballad-esque song about being rescued by a higher power and being redeemed through the strength, joy, and light found through faith. Carrie has always been expressive about her religious beliefs in God, but the song is for anyone who understands the feeling of running out of hope and barely being able to hold onto the end of the rope, only to have a life-changing experience by believing in something bigger than and beyond themselves. “Something in the Water” ends with a powerful closing chorus that incorporates the hymn, “Amazing Grace”, driving home the transformative, uplifting, and inspiring nature of the song.
“Gonna look ahead, no turning back. Live every day, give it all that I have.”
