Top 10 Underrated Carrie Underwood Songs




This bombshell of a country star has been making great music since she stepped onto the scene. But there are still some tunes that have gotten lost along the way. Welcome to MsMojo, and today, we’re counting down our picks for the top ten underrated Carrie Underwood songs.



For this list, we’re looking at those songs by the beautiful country star that have been underloved by the public as a whole. Get ready to add some new tracks to your playlists.





#10: “Look at Me” feat. Vince Gill

Play On (2009)




We’ve all felt this type of love before. It's that initial rush of infatuation settling in and making you feel overjoyed whenever you're near your new love. Off of her third studio album, “Play On,” Carrie has put this feeling into a beautiful song that could easily melt even the most bitter among us. However, much like many entries on this list, the song was never released as a single, and therefore passed under the radar. But just give it a listen, and we think you'll fall a little father too.





#9: “Forever Changed”

Blown Away (2012)




Story songs are pretty much the lifeblood of country music, and with this understated tune, Miss Underwood does not disappoint. This song cuts right to the core too, with lyrics about a young girl growing up and growing old. And the final twist of the knife is when we find that woman has developed Alzheimer’s. Though this song was written for Carrie and not by her, she was once quoted as saying, “It just becomes very real… and I remember my grandmother at the end of her life, looking at my dad and thinking that that was my grandfather.” If that doesn’t get you choked up, we don’t know what will.





#8: “What I Never Knew I Always Wanted”

Storyteller (2015)




Settling down into the married life is not something every woman wants. However, with all of the love songs Underwood has sung in her career, it might be a little shocking to learn that she was one of the women who didn’t exactly believe in the fairytale. Yet, in 2015, Carrie released this incredibly sweet song in dedication to her husband and son. “What I Never Knew I Always Wanted” is a love song in explanation of just that: finding a missing piece you never even knew you lost. Perhaps it’s even what you never knew you always wanted for a wedding anniversary playlist or even just a quiet night in with your longtime spouse.





#7: “Do You Think About Me”

Blown Away (2012)



Trying to move on from someone you still think could be ‘the one’ is always difficult and more than a little heartbreaking. And then you can’t help but wonder if that person is still thinking about you. All of this ache only needs a simple tune to be put into words. And “Do You Think About Me,” from Carrie’s fourth studio album, “Blown Away,” does just that. It is almost too easy to get caught up in the emotion of this song, especially if you’re already feeling a little down.





#6: “Get Out of This Town”

Carnival Ride (2007)




Have you ever wanted to just break free from the life you're living? Maybe all you need is a day away. Maybe you need to start over a whole town. No matter the remedy, if you've felt it, you can relate to this catchy, upbeat track. Off of Underwood’s “Carnival Ride” - an album jam packed with great hit singles - it could be understandable why this ditty got little lost. But go on; play this tune loudly. You might even be inspired to plan your own getaway.



#5: “That's Where It Is”

Some Hearts (2005)




Coming off of her Season Four win of “American Idol,” Carrie Underwood stepped into the studio and put out the first of many great albums. “Some Hearts” contains such stupendous hits as “Before He Cheats” and “Jesus, Take the Wheel.” But it also has this lesser known but still outstanding song, “That’s Where It Is.” With an upbeat tempo and lyrics that will leave you smiling, it’s difficult not to listen to this song more than once on repeat. It is just another one of many tunes that proves she absolutely deserved that “American Idol” win.





#4: “Wine After Whiskey”

Blown Away (2012)




Heartbreak is a theme that Carrie touches on in many ways through her music. It is also an extremely relatable theme. At some point in our lives, we’ve all had our hearts broken in one way or another. “Wine After Whiskey” exposes the raw emotion of moving on from a wildly amazing love. This type of love isn’t necessarily good for you, but you yearn for it anyway. With a metaphor of alcohol weaved in, the lyrics feel all the more palpable.Good luck not tearing up when listening to this track.





#3: “You Won't Find This”

Carnival Ride (2007)




Ah, the ways of love. As we've seen multiple times on this list, Miss Underwood has sung about them in a multitude of ways throughout her career, and this ballad is no exception. With an almost taunting tone to its softly-sung lyrics, “You Won't Find This” wishes its subject good luck alone while knowing they'll be back. Though the song was never released as a single, it certainly has gained traction with fans. And we know you will find this: one listen to this song, and you'll be hooked too.





#2: “Songs Like This”

Play On (2009)




This is probably one of the most country-sounding songs on this list, and being that Carrie is clearly one of the newer queens of that genre, this fits right in her wheelhouse. Just listen to that good ol’ country twang. And dang, it is catchy too. But most good revenge songs are, aren't they? The next break up you face, pop this little ditty on. We’re positive a song like this is sure to raise your spirits instantly and perhaps even get you in the mood for a little hell-raising.



Before we sing along with our top pick, here are a few honorable mentions





“Wheel of the World”

Carnival Ride (2007)











“The Night Before (Life Goes On)”

Some Hearts (2005)







“Dirty Laundry”

Storyteller (2015)







#1: “Good in Goodbye”

Blown Away (2012)




Warning: do not listen to this song unless you feel like you need a good cry. Miss Underwood has proven time and time again throughout her career - let alone on this list - that she knows just the right heartstrings to pluck. But thisis a crowning achievement. It always stings to let people go and realize that they’re happier without you, but this song says that sometimes that can be a good thing. With theincredible lyrics and raw emotion behind every note, it’s hard to believe that this song is so underloved. So, let’s give it some appreciation.
