I didn't like her then and I still donít like her now.Originally Posted by navybelle;3404340;
I always found it painful to watch her stand there like a deer in headlights. I disliked how she had to make everything a country song... thatís not the idea of this show.
Now donít get me wrong she HAS come a long way... I admit im not a huge fan of country music... She still needs someone with a clue to tell her whatís not good to wear to an event, she has some style issues. She needs to eat a pizza (still WAY too thin) and she still has some wooden moments while on stage. She never should have remade Home Sweet Home, its not a good fit for her voice at all.
I never once disputed that she could sing; I felt on the show that she wasn't the whole package at the time.
Carries success has a lot to do with her looks and the fact she sings country. As someone mentioned before be it here in this thread or anotherÖ Country fans are VERY loyal and fierce about it.. they will buy the concert tickets, cds, t-shirts, etc.. they are not as fickle as the rest of musicís fans when talking about mainstream music.
Carrie came around at a time when they needed her as well, it was win win for both of them. Country got a fresh all American girl face to push it back over to the mainstream pop charts much like Faith Hill had done years before, and Carrie was welcomed with open arms to the music that she loved and stood by all thru her American Idol journey. That earned her a lot of loyal fans.
I say good for her.. and wish her all the best.. but please stop making a fool of yourself at hockey games Carrie!!!!
