This song is essentially about revenge. The song sings about getting even with a husband or a boyfriend who was not being loyal to the singer. So, she goes to the parking lot to vandalize her cheating lover’s truck with a baseball bat. Sometime in the song, she also revels in the fact that if this happens again, it would be on her next time.

Funnily enough, despite the nature of the song, Underwood had said that she has not been cheated on. She also does not recommend doing any property damage, and she is a “let it go, move on” kind of person.

The PMJ did a stunning arrangement of the song and they fully captured its essence.
