Untamed
by Cam

Album: Welcome to Cam Country (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • This is the title track of Cam's debut album. Untamed's cover shows the singer sipping lemon juice straight from a lemon. "The idea of just drinking a lemon straight is, life is going to hand you a lot of things that you don't necessarily want to deal with, and you should not water it down and sweeten it up," Cam explained to Rolling Stone Country. "Drink it straight, and deal with it head on. If you're brave enough to take whatever it is head on, you win. The world is yours."
  • The title track is both about Cam's musical strategy and her carefree, independent personality. "That song is about going to the place that the cops don't go and having a party - but also doing things your own way," she explained. "We weren't being rebels on purpose; we just didn't know how things were done."
