Carrie Underwood 'Cross'ing Over to the Bar Mitzvah Circuit?

The funny thing about journalists and puns is that no matter how cheesy and eye roll worthy they are, we still have to laugh a bit. Ok, I’m jumping the gun here. Let’s start from the beginning. This is from the Entertainment Weekly PopWatch Blog.

[Carrie Underwood’s] “Jesus, Take the Wheel” has apparently made it to the synagogue circuit. Nashville songwriter Hillary Lindsey, who collaborated with Underwood (pictured) on the Grammy Award-winning tune, told me last night at the Global Green pre-Oscar party that a friend from New York recently called to say he’d heard it played at a bar mitzvah (one can only assume it was a Reform affair). “Talk about crossing over!” she chuckled. The next morning, I called a photographer pal of mine who specializes in shooting New York-area weddings and bar/bat mitzvahs and he, too, recalled hearing the song at a Jewish function.” (click here for full story)

Weird. But I love the pun, crossing over, lol! ha!
