Do you ever take the time to look at the bonus features on a DVD?
You know the extra stuff that is after the PLAY ALL or SCENE SELECTION ?
If you do, you’ll enjoy this!
Getting the see the artists in footage that is different than performance or your standard interview is always fun for me. In this clip Carrie Underwood give insight not only to how they created the video to “Two Black Cadillacs” but also what it was that got her hooked on scary movies – which I had never heard before.
In the behind the scenes video found below, Carrie says, “Two Black Cadillacs, what do you think of? You think of a funeral procession. That was the first thing that entered my head when I get that picture. There’s basically a wife and a mistress, and the mistress doesn’t know there’s a wife, the wife doesn’t know there’s a mistress. They find about each other and they decide to teach their lying man a lesson.”
“I really don’t know why I’ve always loved horror movies, but I know why I’ve always loved Steven King. My mom was such a huge fan. I guarantee you she’s read everything he’s ever written. I would borrow her books and read her books – this is great reading for a grade schooler, right?”
“Before I knew ‘Two Black Cadillacs’ was going to be a single, I had an idea of a cool movie tie-in. If the car did the killing – because we never say how it happens – al la Christine, the Steven King movie and book, I just thought that would be a cool twist to the story. So I did reach out to ask [King] if he might give his blessing, and I told him I would never want to do this if you didn’t sign off on it first.”
