We love Carrie Underwood. Really we do. "Before He Cheats" and "Last Name" have a permanent home on our iPods. Even her latest single, "Just a Dream," gets us choked up.

Which makes it all the more difficult to say we're not exactly loving the new video for the song. Yes, the subject matter, about a woman dealing with the loss of a loved one in the military is, without a doubt, moving.

Unfortunately, the country cutie's decision to cast herself as the grief-stricken wife in the video is a bit distracting at times, making us kinda wish she had, at least here, simply stuck to her day job.

There you have it. That's our two cents. Now give us yours. We're pretty sure you will.
