    Agreed. Although I think in terms of raw talent she outweighed (no pun intended) most of the country Barbies singing these days. That does NOT include Miranda Lambert, whom I adore.

    Wy shows emotional depth when she sings and that connects her to the audience. Some of the young blondes don't emote. Carrie Underwood sings Stand By Your Man like she's mocking it.

    We both like Kellie Pickler, and now we both like Miranda Lambert? That's it, I'm taking you country line-dancing with me next time I go.

    to be fair, it's mockable
    I feel like I'm in a dream. But it can't be a dream because there are no boy dancers!

    Careful now, I'm sure the spirit of Miss Tammy can still lay a good country-fried whuppin'.

    To be fair to Miss Wynette, the world; and a woman's options, were very different when she wrote that.

    I admire Miss Tammy for standing by her husband. All five of 'em.

    I admire her for making a $$$$ on that song regardless of her personal feelings.
    Those who never succeed themselves are always the first to tell you how.

    That she did! The doorbell at her mansion played the song.

    My coworkers at the restaurant where the kitchen radio was on the local country station if the boss was there (which I didn't object to, except it meant hearing the same songs over and over and over and over) want to know how come in "every" Carrie Underwood song some guy's dying.

    As a lifelong country fan, more and more I'm disturbed by how much country music uses domestic violence against men as a form of female empowerment. It isn't just Carrie either (although some of the dead men in Carrie's songs are tragically lost too- it appears to be her hook.)

    Yeah, it was a statement when it was "Independence Day" (and it wasn't portrayed as necessarily a GREAT thing all-round), now they're distrubingly chipper about it....

    Hey now, the avenging victim makes for many a country song and Lifetime movie. In the old days, the wife directed her ire at the other woman rather than her cheatin' hubby; think Fist City, etc.

    For those who remember this spotlight performance by Jonathan and Anna in tribute to Standard dancer Julia Ivleva--I'm sorry to report Julia lost her battle with cancer early this morning. This is hitting the US dance community rather hard....

    Beautifully done. This dance reminds me why I am missing Anna so much this season.

    Such sad news about Julia.

    And what a moving performance by Jonathan and Anna. Just beautiful.

    What a terrible tragedy; and beautiful tribute.
    May Julia rest in peace.

    I saw an interview with Kellie Pickler. She and Derek will dance the rhumba tonight. Kellie's husband will sing while she is dancing.

    Should be interesting. And Aly and Mark are doing Contemporary; I can't say I have high hopes but they might as well get it out of the way. :p Still mad that their Cha-cha got "wasted" on the first week; I always like to see those danced later on because they're so much better.

    I read online that Lisa fainted in rehearsal this week. Wonder what that is about?
