Songfacts®:

  • "Crazy Angels" is a jubilant sing-along anthem where Carrie Underwood revels in being a "sweetheart with a wild side." Though she'll be at church on a Sunday morning, at nights she comes with a "whiskey warning" when she leaves her angel wings at the dive bar door.
  • Underwood penned "Crazy Angels" with her producer David Garcia and with Lydia Vaughn, the co-writer of "If I Didn't Love You," her smash hit duet with Jason Aldean.
  • Carrie Underwood and David Garcia's retro production incorporates '80s rock guitars and arena-ready vocals. The pop-country instrumentation and lyrical celebration of womanhood places it in the same territory as Shania Twain's "Man! I Feel Like a Woman!"
  • Carrie Underwood performed the song at the 2022 American Music Awards floating above the audience in a suspended spherical cage.
