American Idol: Kelly Clarkson vs. Kree Harrison [Video]

Seven contestants remain on American Idol and odds are looking more and more like this is most definitely a girl's year to win.  Of the seven contestants remaining, five of them are female and just two are male.  And, let's be honest, Idol has had far more success with its female winners than it has its male champs anyway.  Is any Idol out there putting up the sales numbers and topping the charts like Carrie Underwood and Kelly Clarkson.  The answer is a resounding, "No!"  And, last Wednesday, during Motown Week, I was reminded of just how different Idol is these days.  It seems the true standouts, the true phenoms, have already been on the show and won it.  And it was never more apparent than when Kree Harrison, one of this year's frontrunners, took on Aretha Franklin's "Don't Play That Song."  It was the same song Kelly Clarkson sang in the same theme week way back in Season One.  And, if you ask me, there is just no comparison.  WATCH!

Taylor Swift is ‘Super Nice’

 

 

 

 

 

 

Dave Spencer and I have had a number of conversations about superstar Taylor Swift. It seems that we never get requests for her music, when we mention her on Facebook we get a lot of negative comments and I hear people -men and women- gagging at the mention of her name. I don't know why there is such vitriol. Just read this story from Christine Vinson from Townsquare Media Interactive and see how "super nice" she is.

A Random Girl Slays Whitney and Dolly at Discount Grocery Store Karaoke Machine [Video]

Dolly Parton never minced words about it.  She said that she will always love Whitney Houston's version of her hit "I Will Always Love You" because it sold millions of copies and made Dolly LOTS of money.  I honestly never thought anyone would come close to Whitney's version of that song.  I mean, holy cow!  She sang the bloody hell out of it and it spent 14 weeks at #1 on the Billboard Singles Chart.  So, imagine my surprise when my friend Anissa Jo Skaggs came across THIS video on the web.  Some random girl walked up to a random karaoke machine inside a discount grocery store and laid the song out.  WATCH!

Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks Goes Solo [Video]

It's been ten years since the Dixie Chicks' scandal rocked the country music world.  It was March 10th of 2003 that Natalie Maines told a London audience that was she "ashamed that the President of the United States (George W. Bush) is from Texas."  And since that time, it's been a mixed bag.  There have been major successes and major disappointments for the trio.  Among the successes, fivetrophies at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards.  Their comeback effort, Taking The Long Way, was named Best Album and Best Country Album.  Their defiant anthem "Not Ready to Make Nice" was named Record of the Year and Song of the Year.  And the group won the award for Best Country Vocal Duo or Group.  Among the disappointments, the Accidents and Accusations Tourwhich launched the same year.  Ticket sales were strong in some parts of the country . . . a total bust in others.  Some dates were moved from arenas to smaller venues.  Some dates were canceled outright.  While the industry had welcomed them back with open arms, many of their fans had not.  For the Chicks, things just haven't been the same.  And now, Natalie Maines, the group's lead singer, is branching out on her own.
