In an interview with Taste of Country, Underwood talks about her new song "Church Bells" from the album.
“It's like Fancy’s little sister," Referring to McEntire's “Fancy". "She’s young, she’s pretty, she’s poor, doing what she can to survive,” Underwood explains, describing her “Church Bells” inspiration. “(She) Meets a man that has a lot of wealth and is supposed to take care of her.”
"Fancy" was originally written and performed by Bobbi Gentry in 1969, but became best known for McEntire's rendition in 1990. The song became a Top 10 hit in no time, and is still something she is recognized for.
No surprise that Underwood would refer to "Fancy" and McEntire while discussing her dramatic song.
“She ends up killing him, which is not a new subject for me,” Underwood admits with a laugh. “It forces her to be strong.”
We can't wait to hear the full song after the album release on October 23, 2015. Patiently waiting! Watch Underwood's full interview below.
