pipes

I'm a pseudo fan of country music...more alternative country, folk, not whine-y or twangy. Anyway, I am watching a re-run of the CMA awards while I'm cleaning out my email inbox. I don't care what your feelings are about country music, you have got to give props to Carrie Underwood. She has got serious pipes. It looks so effortless for her. When she sings live, it's as good if not better than on her records. From a musical perspective, she has amazing control and stamina...for goodness sake, she sings at full voice higher than many can sing, period. Gee Wiz Carrie. You are #1 on my list of voices I wish I had. Here's her performance. PS, Taylor Swift, you could take a lesson from her.




Oh, and Vince Gill has packed on more pounds.

PS, I would take Allison Krauss or Martina any day too.

i agree too! Carrie has the best voice! That song is so sad...I hadn't heard it before.

I agree as well. She toatlly MAKES that song what it is, as she does with most of her music.

Thank you! Oh, and about your last post, I was so sad I missed the PostSecret event, my favorite thing to do every saturday night before I go to bed is look at PostSecret, I just realized I've been doing that for ... four years now? Never written one though...

she's amazing. i'm not crazy about that style music, but i'll actually listen to it if she's singing it.

Carrie is my "phone book" singer. She could sing through the phone book and I'd listen to it. In fact, I played this song on my way to work this morning...

whoa. cara, i had no idea you had a blog, much less that we shared an olive obsession.

thanks for your thoughts, especially since you've been there. of course i'll have no random excess of time, but i want that time spent to be worthwhile. it could be a long shot... i dunno.

So this is what you do now? Blogging...and I had no idea until now! Good to know you appreciate pipes. It was good to see you and talk to you the other night. Hope you are still doing well!
