Carrie Underwood is being accused by two Canadian songwriters of stealing their song, “Something In The Water.” The song was a #1 hit for Carrie from her 2014 “Greatest Hits” album.
The two songwriters, Ronald McNeill and Georgia Lyons-Savage are suing Carrie for copyright infringement, claiming they wrote a song with the same name in August, 2012. They say they pitched the song to Carrie’s people, who passed. Carrie then released her track two years later, which she co-wrote with Chris DeStefano and Brett James, which the songwriters say contains a lyrically identical hook to their song.
The duo is asking that the case be argued in front of a jury, and they are seeking any profits from the song.

For the record, if I have the chance to work out 7x a week, I'll do it but many weeks life has other plans & I've learned to roll with it! 👍 https://t.co/AOnRjZngGq— Carrie Underwood (@carrieunderwood) September 20, 2017
