Carrie Underwood's “The Bullet” Was Inspired By The Las Vegas Shooting

posted by Jason Hurst - 

Carrie Underwood’s new song “The Bullet" was partially inspired by the mass shooting at the the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas last year. "It's a beautiful and powerful song, and I thought for a long time whether or not I was the one to deliver its message," Underwood says in a new interview with Stellar Magazine. "Unfortunately, too many events have happened and not just on a grand scale...any word I say right now is gonna be wrong.” She adds, "But too many people are going to relate to it...It's a song that needed to be sung." As Taste of Country notes, “The Bullet" describes a gun death and how a bullet keeps moving, symbolically, long after it hits the target. "The Bullet" appears on Underwood's new album Cry Pretty, which is out September 14.   Read more from the Boot.  Also, here's the title track from the new album on which you'll find "The Bullet".
