Carrie Underwood 'Saddened' by 'Something In the Water' Lawsuit

posted by Dustin Stout - 

Carrie Underwood’s camp expects the courts to side with the country star in a new lawsuit.

The suit—filed by Canadian songwriters Ron McNeill and Georgia Lyons—alleges Carrie and co-songwriters Chris DeStefano and Brett James stole the hook of “Something In The Water,” a song the plaintiffs claim they pitched to Carrie’s longtime producer Mark Bright in 2014.

The singer’s camp has released a statement in response to allegations.

“This is a deeply personal song regarding Carrie’s faith, and she is saddened that anyone would attempt to challenge that for financial gain,” before adding, “Neither Carrie nor any of her co-writers ever received or heard the plaintiffs’ song. We fully expect that Carrie, Brett and Chris will be vindicated in the courts.”

“Something in the Water” reached the top of both the country and Christian charts and received a number of award nominations.
