“That tousled tape deck’s nonetheless caught playin’ that blend I made for you,” is what the primary verse line is meant to say — nevertheless, Underwood fully flubs it and sings gibberish earlier than laughing at herself.
“That. That’s the arduous line,” she says to the producer. “Hardest line I’ve ever needed to sing.”
The irony right here is that the “Denim & Rhinestones” singer is a author on the observe and will have simply created a neater line for herself. For now, she will level the finger at David Garcia and Lydia Vaughn, who co-wrote the breakup track.
