Carrie Underwood, Framed
There's no higher virtue than patriotism, and no musician as patriotic as Carrie Underwood, the country songstress who's gone way past American Idol and is now a bona fide superstar. Many of her vids, including this one, feature tributes to those who serve.
And, as far as superstardom credentials go, three of her four albums have hit #1 in Billboard; the fourth "only" made it to #2.
In this week's video, a Vevo premier called "See You Again," Carrie sings about loss -- specifically, the loss of a loved one. She pays tribute to the military, of course, and also to the victims of Sandy Hook and the recent Oklahoma tornadoes. (Carrie was born and raised in Oklahoma.) Ms. Underwood, who by all accounts is a devout Christian, believes that we'll all see our loved ones after our time here on Earth.
Can it be true? Only you, our valued readers can decide! Please feel free to post: life after death? Or make me laugh?
