OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood Wins the Battle of the Tulle

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and
out of the spotlight.)

OK, it wasn’t technically a battle. But wasn’t it kind of interesting that both Carrie
and Taylor Swift — the only two country artists performing
— did their songs on Sunday night’s (Nov. 18) American Music Awards in black tulle skirts? What are the odds, you know? And
while Swift definitely scored points for revealing her tulle skirt mid-song. (It had been hidden under a big white dress that
her dancers yanked off of her in that blink-and-you’ll-miss-it way that only perfectly choreographed dancers can do.) But
Underwood won the night, in my mind, because of how relevant her tulle was to her song “Two Black Cadillacs.” It’s a song
about a man’s wife and his mistress meeting for the first time at his funeral — a funeral they caused, by the way. But when
Underwood sings in the chorus about how “the women in the two black veils didn’t bother to cry,” her veil-like skirt suddenly
seems so appropriate. Even Justin Bieber seemed blown away when he said to his manager something that looked like “That was
really cool.”
