Carrie Underwood surprised fans when she dropped “Out of That Truck” seemingly out of the blue in early March, marking the country superstar’s first release since 2022’s Denim & Rhinestones. While sonically the track veers into ’90s country territory, lyrically the song is something of a thematic cousin to Underwood’s Denim & Rhinestones hit “Ghost Story,” in that “Out of That Truck” considers the ways places and cherished objects can bring to mind memories—good and bad—of loved ones. “If you’re spending a lot of time with somebody, being in a vehicle of some sort, especially if you do live out in the country and you are riding around in trucks, it definitely would be a space that would make that person always think of you and your time together,” Underwood tells Apple Music.
