What parents need to know
Parents need to know that the album cover for "Good Girl" features a sexier Underwood than usual, but the track, like her past tunes, lacks profanity, sex, and violence. The song is about not settling for less than you deserve in love and is fine for tweens who understand the difference between good and bad relationships.

What's the story?
"GOOD GIRL" is the lead single from Carrie Underwood's fourth studio album, Blown Away, and is full of powerhouse vocals and a more rock-country sound that shows Underwood is back and better than ever. The song is about knowing you deserve to be treated well and not to settle for less in a relationship.
Is it any good?
It's no secret that Carrie Underwood can sing. Her single "Good Girl" not only reveals a sexier, stronger side to the former American Idol winner, but also lets Underwood unleash the beast that is her vocal chords and preach to girls and women everywhere that there are some not-so-nice guys out there, and settling should never be an option. With a catchy chorus, melody, and lyrics like "His lips are drippin' honey, but he'll sting you like a bee," "Good Girl" might make you think twice before giving your heart blindly.
