Carrie Underwood told American Songwriter
that on her Cry Pretty
album she shows people dealing with lost love in diverse ways. While on "Drinking Alone
," the lady is "hanging out, drinking, trying to feel better," in "Ghosts On The Stereo," she deals with her heartbreak differently.
"The person's at home, 'not needing nobody,' getting drunk by herself, kind of listening and lost in this moment, the music," Underwood explained. "But it's very specific to this person's kind of breakdown."
