Country star Carrie Underwood takes a somewhat dark, dramatic turn in her just-released video for “Two Black Cadillacs.” In the clip, the singer appears in the backseat of the titular vehicle, rolling through a cemetery on a dreary day, while she tells the tale of a recently-passed married man who had a dirty secret. “The women in the two black veils didn’t bother to cry—he’s not the only one who had a secret to hide,” Carrie sings, all decked out in black lace, sky-high stilettos, and those fingerless gloves she loves. And as the story unfolds, viewers discover that maybe she’s not so innocent either. Watch the video above!
