Carrie Underwood version

In 2005, it was recorded by Carrie Underwood as the title track of her debut album, Some Hearts, and was the album's third single. It was only released to pop and adult contemporary radio in the United States in November 2005, around the same time that "Jesus, Take the Wheel" was released to country radio. "Some Hearts" peaked at number 12 on the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart and reached number 22 on the Adult Top 40 chart. The song had no accompanying music video and was not released to country radio. It has sold over 207,000 copies in US as of February 2010.[1]

Underwood performed the song at the 2005 Billboard Music Awards, the half-time of the 2006 NBA All-Star Game in Houston, on an episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show and during her promotional tour for the album's release. The song was used in early commercials for American Idol's website during the sixth season of the show, until Daughtry's "Home" was used after Hollywood week.

Critical reception

Scott Shetler of Slant Magazine wrote in his review of the album that " Underwood is likely to become a fixture on the country charts for the next year with songs like the uptempo title track, a smash hit in the making that is equal parts Jo Dee Messina and SHeDAISY."[2] Stephen Thomas Erlewine wrote that Underwood sounds equally convincing on such sentimental fare as "Jesus, Take the Wheel" as on the soaring pop "Some Hearts".[3]
