Renegade Runaway

Album: Storyteller (2015)
  • Carrie Underwood wrote this uptempo song with Chris DeStefano and Hillary Lindsey. Set in the Wild, Wild West, it tells the story of a woman who looks like an angel, but has a dark side, leaving her lovers without warning - a sort of female equivalent of the guy in "Cowboy Casanova."
  • The song opens the Storyteller album. "There's a lot of country, traditional, staple instruments, and obviously storytelling is something country music has always done really well," Underwood told People about the record. "I feel like we occupy those elements, but it's very cool and very now and very fresh."
