Check out the Oklahoma songstress’ five expertly woven revenge tunes below!

1) “Before He Cheats” 2006

Telling Lyrics Snippet:

I dug my key into the side/
Of his pretty little souped-up four-wheel drive/
Carved my name into his leather seats

2) “Blown Away” 2012

Telling Lyrics Snippet:

She heard those sirens screaming out/
Her daddy laid there passed out on the couch/
She locked herself in the cellar

Sure not a lover in this case, but the character did ditch her less-than-stellar parental unit during a tornado.

3) “Two Black Cadillacs” 2012

Telling Lyrics Snippet:

It was the first and the last time they saw each other face to face/
They shared a crimson smile and just walked away/
And left the secret at the grave

4) “Church Bells” 2016

Telling Lyrics Snippet:

Jenny slipped something in his Tennessee whiskey/
No law man was ever gonna find

5) “Dirty Laundry” 2016

Telling Lyrics Snippet:

Yeah, I’ma have to hang you out to dry, dry, dry/
Clothespin all your secrets to the line, line, line

There you have it, a decade’s worth of excellent songs that spin a fascinating web of gritty stories.
