Good Girl-Carrie Underwood (Arista)

Adding here with great misgivings. This is about as far away from Country as a girl can get. If it hadn’t sold over a hundred thousand singles in it’s first week, I’d be even more inclined to hold back on it. Sure, young women will go crazy for it, but it’s a Pop/Disco record, complete with some auto-tune drop-ins. I swear. I dunno. What’s the UPS delivery man who keeps the Country station turned up in his truck ten hours a day gonna think when this comes on? Sure she’s got solid Country creds at this moment, but so did Shania Twain at one time, right? before she blew off the Country fans doing records much akin to this one. Leann Rimes, too. Be careful.
