Type :    

  Summary  

"Cowboy Casanova" is a country song by American recording artist Carrie Underwood. The song was written by Mike Elizondo, Brett James and co-written by Underwood herself. It was released on September 14, 2009 by Arista Nashville as the lead single from her third studio album, Play On. The song sold 1,697,000 copies making it the 3rd biggest single of her career behind "Jesus, Take the Wheel" and "Before He Cheats".

The song received positive reviews from critics and became the fastest climbing country single of 2009. It also became Underwood's eighth number one country single in the United States. The single was certified platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America on January 1, 2010. The song gave Underwood the title of solo female artist with most top ten country hits in the 2000s, which is tied with Reba McEntire.

  Presentation  

 background
After the end of her "Carnival Ride Tour", in February 2009, Underwood began writing songs for her new album Play On. She collaborated with a number of producers which included Brett James, one of the three co-writers of her hit single "Jesus, Take the Wheel", and Mike Elizondo, who had collaborated with Eminem and Dr. Dre. Elizondo came up with the main melody of the song, to which James and Underwood set the lyrics. James then suggested the title "Cowboy Casanova" off a list of potential titles that he had, and the lyrics talk about a male character who is a "devil in disguise." In an interview with CMT Underwood said,
"I think to every woman, this song would be telling a story about someone they know or met or has tried to pick them up in a bar". "We're not trashing this guy, we're just warning these other girls about him."

An unfinished version of the song leaked online on September 2, 2009 after receiving airplay from KMPS-FM in Seattle. The label then rush-released the official version to Carrie Underwood's YouTube channel on September 3, 2009. It was officially made available for download on September 14, 2009.

 composition
"Cowboy Casanova" is a moderately paced country song. It incorporates elements of rock-inspired guitar riffs in the introduction and verses, and also the violin and banjo-esque qualities which travel into the refrain. The song is composed in D minor, set in common time with a tempo of 120 beats per minute. Underwood's vocals span from A3 to D5.
