Carrie Underwood's "Two Black Cadillacs" Video Inspired by Stephen King's Christine

Carrie Underwood 's latest video, "Two Black Cadillacs," may have you scratching your head a little bit. Though the lyrics imply that one of the two women kill the guy cheating on them both in the song, Carrie opted to have one of the Cadillacs finish the guy off in the video.

The inspiration came from the Stephen King book and film Christine , which features a murderous vehicle. Carrie actually got Stephen's blessing before she shot the video, and the clip definitely falls in line with her goal of not shooting boring, run-of-the-mill videos.

"I don't want to just see what I hear and already see in my head," Carrie explains. "I want the video to take it in a different direction, or add a little something or have a little twist, a plot twist somewhere in there, and not just be a retelling of, 'Now I see it instead of just hearing it.'"

Of course, making a compelling video is a lot easier when you have a song full of intriguing twists and turns like "Two Black Cadillacs." From the moment Carrie wrote it and recorded it, she knew it was destined for the radio.

"I knew it was really special, and it was another great story song," Carrie says. "It was just juicy and dramatic, and I really like that."

"Two Black Cadillacs" is the latest single from Carrie's platinum-selling album, Blown Away .
