"Now it's up the stairs, And out of view, no prying eyes."

Recently I heard a song for the first time. A country song. By an American Idol alum. Sure I might be a bit behind the forefront when it comes to Country Music and American Idol. Both of which I generally pride myself of not being fond of, but with lyrics like

Right now, he's probably buying her some fruity little drink cause she can't shoot Whiskey; and
Right now, she's probably up singing some white-trash version of Shania karaoke.
How can you not love it? I never thought the day would come when I'd be singing along with Carrie Underwood nonstop.

It's right up there right now with the Bettie Serveert version of "Lover I Don't Have to Love", which I also have a tendency to sing along with in my office.

I love this song! I'm NOT a country music fan, and only subsequently found out it was classed as a country song, but the lyrics are genius.

Of course nobody over here has ever heard it...

Love that song too! I've worked so hard to not be the stereotypical country music-listening girl from Mississippi,but I can't help myself on this one.

"Right now, he's probably puttin' on $3 worth of that bathroom Polo..."

Too good. Guilty pleasure.

I have to remind myself, however, that this is the same person who popularized a song called, "Jesus Take the Wheel."
