Well this is new… Carrie Underwood has two Canadian songwriters filing a lawsuit over one of her biggest hits. These two songwriters are claiming that they wrote a song titled “Something in the Water” that bears a striking resemblance to her hit of the same name. Their names are Georgia Lyons and Ronald McNeill and their arguement is that that they composed their song in 2012 and sent it to Underwood’s team to see if she’d be interested in cutting it, but didn’t hear back. The songwriters claim that the version of “Something in the Water” that appears on Underwood’s Greatest Hits: Decade #1 album is “structurally and lyrically identical, and substantially similar melodically” to the track they penned, according to The Tennessean.
