What parents need to know

Parents need to know that this single follows the classic Carrie Underwood pattern: no offensive language, sex, substance use, or other adult content of any kind. Although the tune covers romantic-relationship ground -- this time finding her wishing she could erase the memory of a failed relationship -- Underwood describes her heartache in very innocuous terms.

What's the story?

UNDO IT is the latest single off the smash-hit album Play On by Carrie Underwood -- the former American Idol who took the show by storm with her powerhouse vocals and sweet country way. Like most of Underwood's music, the tune covers romantic-relationship ground -- this time finding her wishing she could erase the memory of a failed relationship. Though it's a tough topic, Underwood avoids using graphic language or adult references, choosing instead to describe her heartache in very innocuous terms. For example: "You had my heart, now I want it back / I'm starting to see everything you lack / Boy you blew it, you put me through it, I wanna undo it."

Is it any good?

With a voice like hers, no Carrie Underwood song could ever suffer from bad vocals. That said, "Undo It" is another Underwood tune with rock-solid singing. The super-catchy hook straddles the line between new country and pop, combining some power synthesizer and a little bit of fiddle.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about why wishing you could erase the past isn't always the healthiest reaction to a break-up. Have you ever had a relationship that ended, but you still remember some of the good times?

  • Discuss Underwood's career. How did she become the most successful AI alum? Was it her talent, or making good choices? Or perhaps both?
