Last Name (4:00)

Cover of Carnival Ride

From Carnival Ride and 3 other releases

“Last Name” is a song composed by country singer Carrie Underwood, Hillary Lindsey and Luke Laird. It is the third single from Underwood’s second studio album, Carnival Ride. It was released in the United States on April 7, 2008, by which point the song had already charted. At the 51st Grammy Awards, the song won Underwood her third consecutive Grammy Award for Best Female Country Vocal Performance.

The song is one of four tracks on the album co-written by Underwood, and the third consecutive one to be released as a single from the album. It is a moderate up-tempo describing a woman meeting a man at a club and later eloping with him in Las Vegas after having had too much to drink that night. She wakes up the next morning, “dreaming bout Elvis somewhere in Vegas”, to discover that she does not even know her last name (i.e., she married the man while she was intoxicated), and worrying that her “mama would be so ashamed.” The music video portrays the song as a prequel to her Before He Cheats song, even going so far as to hire the same actor to play the man in question.

Last night I got served a little bit too much of that poison, baby
Last night I did things I'm not proud of and I got a little crazy
Last night I met a guy on the dance floor and I let him call me baby
