Carrie Underwood's new song is about the Route 91 festival

CARRIE UNDERWOOD's new album "Cry Pretty" is out Friday.  One of the songs is called "Bullet", so somebody asked if it was "partly motivated" by the Route 91 tragedy.  And even though she didn't write it . . . she said it is. 

Quote, "Yes, definitely.  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.  Unfortunately, too many events have happened and not just on a grand scale.  And any word I say right now is gonna be wrong.  But too many people are going to relate to it . . . whether in the military, if they're cops, or just people who were in the wrong place at the wrong time.  It's a song that needed to be sung."

According to Taste of Country, the song describes a gun death and how a bullet keeps moving [symbolically] long after it has hit the target, ripping holes in the hearts of everyone the deceased knew and loved.  That's heavy stuff.
