You be the judge.
When Carrie Underwood released her song “Cowboy Casanova,” some wondered if the song was a shot at Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, whom Underwood used to date. In the song, Underwood derides the Casanova as “candy-coated misery” and “the devil in disguise.”
Esquire asked Underwood if her song was directed at the Dallas quarterback, and the singer swiftly rejected the idea — and came out swinging at Romo. She tells the magazine, “No. I would never immortalize a guy that did me wrong. I would never give him that much credit.”
You’re running, you’re trying, you’re trying to hide
And you’re wondering why you can’t get free
Trying to hide? Like, say, in Mexico?
He’s like a curse, he’s like a drug
You get addicted to his love
This may have less to do with Romo and more to do with the songwriters being in a Robert Palmer phase at the time they wrote this song.
You wanna get out but he’s holding you down
‘Cause you can’t live without one more touch
I suppose it’s just coincidence that the last two words of these lines are “touch” and “down”. Totally inadvertent, I’m sure.
It is interesting that Underwood chose to use the phrase “he’s holding you down” though, seeing as how Romo is well-known for his lack of ability in doing just that.
As if the Cowboys don’t have enough going on in December, another Romo controversey hits just in time right?
