Ron McNeil and Georgia Lyons recently filed a lawsuit in federal court stating that, Carrie Underwood and her co-writers on "Something in the Water" stole the song from them.
Their lawsuit reads, "the hook on the infringing work, as released on the album, is structurally and lyrically identical, and substantially similar melodically to plaintiffs' composition of the same title."
The duo is also claiming they sent the song to Underwood, but "never heard back" and then she released the song.
Ummm...okay, now something's fishy.
Carrie Underwood probably gets sent a song every 2 hours from songwriters. Lots of those songwriters probably "don't hear back." She's Carrie Underwood.
You know what else is fishy? Ol' Ron McNeil's website. I know I work for the Internet and might have more knowledge on websites than a lot of people, but this is not the website of a hit songwriter.
