Carrie Underwood has released her song, “Out Of That Truck,” to radio. She co-wrote the tune with David Garcia and Lydia Vaughan, and she said it’s about memories that pop up in familiar places.
“The inspiration behind ‘Out Of That Truck’ is basically just about the physical markers that somebody can leave behind in your life, and I feel like we’ve all got those to some extent,” Underwood said. “Whether you’re like walking through the house that you grew up in and you see things of your parents, or some book or piece of jewelry or something that it’s like, those things remind you of somebody and feel like, if you grew up in a small town like I did, you spend a lot of time in your vehicle. When I think back to friends or people that I dated or whatever, it’s kind of like you remember being with them in vehicles, and if you have something that you’ve had for a long time, you can definitely kind of look over to the seat next to you and almost see the other person there. So, that’s kind of what it’s all about, you know, a love that is no more, but you’ve kind of left your mark everywhere.”
Underwood returns to the stage of the Grand Ole Opry for two shows on June 6 before heading back to Las Vegas for her “Reflections” residency at Resorts World on June 21.
