No. 82: Carrie Underwood, ‘Just a Dream’ – Top 100 Country Love Songs

Carrie Underwood Just a Dream
Arista Nashville

Carrie Underwood demonstrated that true love transcends even death in this haunting track, which easily deserves its place in the Top 100 Country Love Songs. ‘Just a Dream’ starts off in a romantic vein, luring the listener in by following a young bride to the church in her wedding dress, ostensibly for her wedding.

But in a true country music tragic twist, it transpires that the young wife is a widow, and she is at the church to attend the funeral of her husband, a soldier who’s been killed in action. The shattered young woman can’t accept her fate, setting up the classic lament, “This is just a dream.” The song caught on with country fans, becoming Underwood’s sixth straight single to land at No. 1.
