ADD: Smoke Break – Carrie Underwood (19Nashville/Arista)

Not my kind of record, she’s not my kind of singer. Power singers, stadium voices like this belong in Rock. Ann and Nancy. Pat Benatar, you know. But, but but, I know. Ever’body else loves her Carrie-ness, and like maybe she’s the whiter Beyonce. Check out the Viking dominatrix outfit she’s wearing in photo shoot for this record. Anyway, if I’m programming a commercial Country radio station, I gotta give’em what theys wants and theys wants them their Carrie singin’ a song about them.
