Independence Day

Lyrics

Well she seemed alright by dawn's early light
Though she looked a little worried and weak
She tried to pretend he wasn't drinkin' again
But daddy left the proof on her cheek

Doesn't sound voice
i love this song and she rocks
:D
Love it :d
Nobody can sing as good as Carrie Underwood.
This is the best song ever! Either Martina McBride or Carrie can sing this and it's still AMAZING!!! :) anybody but Taylor Swift can sing this song and its good!
Her voice does not have the depth that Martina's does for this song. Good version though, but I do prefer Martina's.
Amazing!! She puts Martina to shame singing this!
I have to agree with foreverme731 , that it is an excellent song no matter who sings it !
yeah martina's song.but good no matter whos singing it!!
Martina did it better...but frankly I don't know how any even slightly talented singer could mess up this amazing song.
i have never heard martinas version of it
I personally LOVE Carrie Underwood, but I have to agree. Martina OWNED this song. Carrie Underwood is a great singer as well. I love them both :) There's nothing wrong loving them both!
I just listen to this song thought man this is a bad recording of Martina, then I looked and its Carrie. Carries has a good strong voice but I just realize Martina is much stronger. Thank god it was not Martina, because like I said its sounded like a bad recording.

Y would she remake such a great song?! Martina owns this one!
I concur. Great song but Martina's is waaaaaaaaaaa a a y better.

Great song - I agree Carrie sings it so well, but it's Martina's song from start to finish.

I don't listen to C&W often but this song in particular is a good one. Carrie does a good job but Martina owns it!
love the song
Don't feel the goosebumps with Carrie, I feel with Martina during the chorus 'Let Freedom Ring..."
I think the song is about a abusuve father and a scared mom who torched the house and her and her husbund and sent the girl to the orphanege.
Sad but Cool
Can't compete with Martina Carrie!!! Sorry!
i think taylor swift is way better:P
She doesn't do near as good as Martina McBride
perrysummers
u love carrie underwood she is so pretty and she has an amazing voice
dodie-bird
I thought Martina McBride sang this........ w h o was it orginally by?
brej939
I like both versions. That it has been redone is a tribute to the message of the song
the picture on her album makes her look fat (she isn't).
this song is the best ever
kaweekawee16 dosen't know good music.

Oh Please! Martina Mcbride is a good singer.. but ur going over board there kethery... Carrie is so amazing!!!
i love this song!!!!!
grrr kethery it does not and anyway Carrie would not kill a cat lol
septery
Martina McBride sings this song, and Carrie ruins it. Her voice makes it sound like she is trying to kill a cat.
lol i no demi i love this too
i love this song, didnt martina mcbride sing it? anyhow, i hate that picture of her up there. UGH. it makes her look ugly (which shes not)
I think that Carrie did a fantastic job on this song. People need to stop comparing her to Reba or Martina. There is a huge difference and maturity!
kristawolcot t
MUCH prefer Martina!!!

Reba doesn't sing this. Martina McBride does. And she does it much better.
It took me a while for it to register that this was not Reba. While they are both very different artists, they are both extremely talented and sing this song with ferver and passion
Carrie Underwood is definately blessed..oh how she can sing and as my favorite song of all time she does it so marvelously! ! ! ! ! M a k e s me want to take lessons at my age of 59 to be able to hyptonize people like she does with her song and her singing...sh e is an ARTIST for sure!!!!!!!! littleironfi s t

Reba McEntire's version is much, much better. Reba's voice is more powerful and her maturity comes through, while Carrie sounds too young to sing this.
