Striking Similarities Between Carrie’s “Blown Away” and Jaclyn’s “Sirens”

This happens pretty frequently.  A star releases a song that sounds so incredibly similar to another that suspicions and eyebrows are raised.  Most recently, this happened to Dierks Bentley with his song "Home."  A singer-songwriter named Jason Isbell started pointing fingers and claiming that Bentley and company lifted the chorus of their hit single from his song, "In A Razor Town."  Here at WBKR, we listened to both tracks on air and you cannot deny the similarities.  Dierks' chorus for "Home" sounds JUST LIKE Jason's for "In A Razor Town."  Like I said, this kind of thing happens all the time.  Sometimes, sadly, it happens intentionally.  Other times it occurs purely by coincidence.  Each time, it's nearly impossible to tell.  And, thankfully, it had never happened to us.  Until now . . .
