Wow! Congratulations to the show, actors and behind the camera peeps. This is one of the few show I LOVE and especially thanks to Bear. Hope they get him a really big bone.
1600 Penn has a sneak preview on 12/17. I'm going to check it out - previews look funny.
Carrie singing The Sound of Music. No twang and she sounds amazing.
Roll Tide, y'all!
Her phrasing needs help and her voice needs more training for those songs. Then again, I compare modern singers to Julie Andrews and Mary Martin - and those two voices were trained for the theater rather than for pop music.
Just for comparison - Mary Martin http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...BerEFJHU#t=48s

Carrie has a lot to live up to; and a long way to go, to reach the level of Mary Martin and Julie Andrews. IMO.
I don't care. I enjoyed her performance. And I have heard the Julie Andrews version and agree that she is a better singer than Carrie (and I do realize that Carrie does have some flaws in her singing). But I preferred Carrie's performance probably mainly because I don't really care for Julie's style of singing (I'm in complete no teknik when it comes to singing so I don't have the vocabulary for what I'm trying to say) and I'm also a borderline Carrie uber.
Roll Tide, y'all!
I don't like the key change on the song Carrie sang. I like the original key much better. However, she does sound better than I thought. I know she can sing but I wasn't sure if she could mask the twang. With more practice, and she has a year, she could do quite well but if all the songs are brought down in the key she sang this one in then I don't know how I will like that.
