So, if Bo actually won last year and if Bucky was a front-runner this year, I would say the same thing - Bucky wouldn't win, because 19E wants somebody completely different each year. Kellie and Carrie are both bleach- blonde country girls. Carrie does pure country, while Kellie mixes it up with country and strong blue-eyed female soul like Bonnie Raitt and Melissa Ethridge, but Kellie and Carrie are still too similar to one another. And that is the ONLY reason why I can't see Kellie winning.
Just wait - the judges will start turning on her once she hits the Top 5.
