Track Review: Carrie Underwood, 'Good Girl'
Track Review: Carrie Underwood, 'Good Girl'

After offering some caustic relationship advice on her smash single "Before He Cheats," Carrie Underwood shoots off another warning against unseemly male figures in "Good Girl," an uptempo new single released on Thursday (Feb. 23).

Written by Underwood, Ashley Gorley and Chris DeStefano, the track finds the former "American Idol" champ at her most fiery, leaping between near-whispers and pointed shouts over handclaps and a guitar riff that eventually lead into a snarling solo. "His lips are dripping honey, but he'll sting you like a bee!" Underwood exclaims before the rousing chorus.

"Good Girl" previews Underwood's still-untitled fourth studio album, which will hit stores on May 1. Produced by longtime collaborator Mark Bright, the album follows 2005's "Some Hearts," 2007's "Carnival Ride" and 2009's "Play On," which have sold over 12 millions copies combined, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The country star is set to perform at the 2012 CMA Music Festival, which invades Nashville from June 7-10.
