I am not a country music fan. There are only a handful of country musicians that I can stand to listen to. Maybe it's all the talk about beer and horses...and feeding beer to the horses. It's just too much. But today, there is new country music worth talking about.
Carrie Underwood's new album is out today, and it is titled Carnival Ride. Madeline fell in love with Carrie Underwood's voice on her first album and to be honest, so did I. I really can't even imagine a song from Carrie that I wouldn't enjoy, (unless it was about feeding beer to horses.) After a first listen, these are the highlights (in my opinion of course).
- I Told You So (my favorite so far)
- So Small (her first single)
- I Know You Won't
- Crazy Dreams
- Wheel of the World
I think Carrie has the most staying power in the music industry followed closely by Kelly Clarkson, and this album should help her stay at the top of the charts.
