VH1 Unplugged: Carrie Underwood Cures Us With Her Cover of Coldplay’s “Fix You”

by (@zaragolden)

We’ve been struck by a bad case of Underwood fever over here at VH1, with her Behind The Music set to air this Sunday and herĀ Unplugged ready to go live the week following, and the only thing that can fix us is this cool cover Carrie did of Coldplay‘s “Fix You.” Carrie and her crew learned the song while in London so that they could “pay tribute,” she said, becasue “they were so nice to welcome us there, and they have so much talent right there.” Carrie’s usual country twanging is as sonically distant to Coldplay’s arena rock balladry as Oklahoma is to London, but here she has managed to turn the song so that it sounds straight from her wheelhouse. Buoyed by strings and with her ever strong vocals promising to “guide us home and ignite our bones” left us chilled.

Be sure to tune-in when Behind The Music: Carrie Underwood premieres this Sunday, September 30 at 9/8c on VH1. And then check back next week when Carrie goes Unplugged on October 2 at 4pm ET on VH1.com and 7pm ET on-air on VH1.
