Carrie Underwood's Newest Song Sings of Strong Christian Themes

Carrie Underwood's Newest Song Sings of Strong Christian Themes

By Charis Brown, 7 Cultural Mountains

Her newest song, "Something in the Water," describes a heartfelt conversion experience.
Carrie Underwood, the country superstar and Grammy winner first discovered on American Idol is not shy about her Christian faith.

"It's really kind of a joyous, uplifting song about changing your life for the better and kind of having that 'a-ha' moment, to waking up and your life being different from that moment forward," she told NBC's TODAY.

From singing "How Great Thou Art" as a duet with Vince Gill to talking with Oprah about her prayer life, Underwood is never afraid to talk about her faith when she has the opportunity. Recently, she and her husband, hockey player Mike Fisher, surprised attendees at the Q Conference in Nashville to talk about their marriage and respective callings. She credited Nashville with being a supportive environment to be a Christian.

"It's easy to be a Christian in Nashville," she said.

But, there are definitely some critics who don't appreciate the song's candid message.

"I'm not the first person to sing about God, Jesus, faith [or] any of that, and I won't be the last," said Underwood to Glamour Magazine. "And it won't be the last for me, either. If you don't like it, change the channel."
