Carrie Underwood & Co-Writers Sued For 'Something In The Water'

Carrie Underwood and her "Something In The Water" co-writers, Chris DeStefano and Brett James, are being sued over the chart-topping song. Two Canadian songwriters are accusing the three of theft, claiming they pitched Underwood's producer, Mark Bright, a song with the same title and very similar lyrics back in 2014.

The Tennessean reports that writers Ron McNeill and Georgia Lyons say they never heard back from Bright, but Underwood recorded her own version of "Something In The Water" the following year. McNeill and Lyons argue in the suit that "the hook on the infringing work, as released on the album, is structurally and lyrically identical, and substantially similar melodically to plaintiffs' composition of the same title."

Three years ago, Underwood told us she had the idea for "Something In the Water." "My idea for it was kind of like a baptism, like 'there must be something in the water. What was it about that that changed my life?' Everybody kind of jumped on board and we went from there and created this story that starts out in somebody giving you advice and then kind of changing your life and then how your life has changed from there and the end of it just got bigger and bigger and we started putting vocals on it like a choir was singing with us and by the end it was like, 'What just happened?' We were literally jumping around the room, like running around being crazy because it was just kind of one of those songs that there's just so much energy."

"Something In The Water" was the first single from Carrie's 2014 album, Greatest Hits: Decade #1.

Chris Young Is 'Pumped' About New Video

Chris Young is climbing the music charts with "Losing Sleep," the title track from his upcoming album of the same name, but now fans have a video to watch, too. Chris tells us the clip is everything he envisioned. "Basically while I was on site, either looking at a camera, or a couple of times while filming . . . actually I could see one of the other screens showing what we’re doing, but (I'm) so pumped for this! I have a really really crazy good feeling about this video. It’s just a really cool video, it’s sexy, but it’s classy, and there’s a really great vibe to it. I’m just so pumped for people to have a video finally, a true video."

Chris' Losing Sleep album will be released on October 20th.
