Product Description

This 20-year-old native of Albemarle, North Carolina, became an instant fan favorite on American idol with her quick, down-home wit and personality. Singing since "before she could talk," Kellie's new record features the single "Red High Heels" which is set to storm the country music scene. The debut album from Kellie Pickler truly shows that this 'Small Town Girl' is headed for the big-time!

This debut album by the small-town girl with the big, powerhouse voice showcases two distinctly different sides of Kellie Pickler's music. The hard-riffing uptempo material recalls the heartland rock of Bob Seger and John Mellencamp, with Pickler providing a good-ole-girl twang. Among the highlights are the emancipated strut of "Red High Heels," the playful humor of "Things That Never Cross a Man's Mind," and the tomboy bluesiness of "One of the Guys." Yet the American Idol finalist turns pure diva on the over-the-top balladry of the album's other half, with swelling strings and arrangements that overpower rather than enhance "I Wonder" and "I'm on My Way." On such cuts, producer Blake Chancey (Dixie Chicks) never gives Pickler a chance to show the subtlety and nuance that makes music more an art than a competition. --Don McLeese

I'm not an "enthusiastic" fan of Kellie Pickler but I was curious as to how her debut CD would turn out. Much to my surprise, it was a lot better than I thought.

Kellie's CD is a nice balance of soulful ballads and upbeat tunes. There were a few songs where she could've done better, a few that captured the pain of growing up without a mom and of losing a beloved grandmother, and a few sassy ones that showcase her fun-loving personality. However, I think Kellie can only improve as she gets more experience under her belt.

Here are my thoughts on some of the tracks:

Red High Heels: Upbeat and catchy tune with a whole lot of sass. With Kellie's penchant for shoes, I'm not surprised this was her first release.

Gotta Keep Moving: This is a definite "cruisin' with the top down" type of song. It's fun with a real good beat.

Things that Never Cross a Man's Mind: Not sure I like this one.

Didn't You Know How Much I Loved You: This is a really good song. The lyrics are heartfelt and moving, but I'm not sure Kellie was very convincing in her performance. Her voice lacked conviction.

I Wonder: This is my favorite song on this CD. I think this is a song about her mother. I'm guessing though. Anyway, Kellie really pulls it off. Her voice is rich with pain and heartbreak.

Wild Ponies: Slow, sad ballad about a strong-willed girl who falls for and marries the wrong guy. I also liked this song and Kellie does an adequate job with it.

My Angel: This song is about her grandmother and the pain of losing her. Again, Kellie's grief really shows through her voice.

I recommend Kellie's CD as a definite buy. You'll be surprised by it as I was.

Maybe she didn't win American Idol Season Five, but now that Kellie Pickler can concentrate on singing country music, it's pretty clear that country is her strong point, and where she belongs.

On this excellent debut album she proves that she can hold her own with the best of them, and with the production talents of Blake Chancey (who also did the job for the Dixie Chicks) this album will be around for a long time.

There's no filler material on this album, which starts off with the first single "Red High Heels" and never stops churning from there in. Her strong vocals and the slick arrangements make this album special, and it's obvious that's she's having a really good time. Listen for "Gotta Keep Moving", "Things That Never Cross A Man's Mind", "I Wonder", "Small Town Girl", "Girls Like Me" and "My Angel", and then listen to the rest.

A great debut album that's on par with the best out there.

I really really don't care for country music. So sue me. But this Kellie Pickler is OK.

I have to tell you, I bought this album on an impulse...personality-wise, I enjoyed seeing Miss Pickler on "Idol."

Like I said, the stereotypical country sound...twangy bowed guitar, simple drum beats, accented vocals and recycled subject matters...does nothing for me. But I have to admit I kinda enjoyed this.

I think those who enjoy country will LOVE this.

This is a quality album; the songs are sturdy, the production crisp. I liked the uptempo song initially sounds like an outtake from Mellencamp's "Lonesome Jubilee", with angular guitars and off-kilter rhythms, before becoming a bit more mainstream.

Her voice is fine...not overpowering but the kind of "everyman's" (or "everywoman's") voice that's very appealing and empathic. There's not a lot of oversinging, warbling, or other distractions.

Two songs in particular I'd like to single out:

"Things That Never Cross A Man's Mind" is a funny, uptempo, sassy number that Shania Twain would have made ten years ago.

And "I Wonder" is a beautifully sung ballad, showing that Miss Pickler may have a seriously successful future if her career is managed well, and she continues to smartly select her songs and collaborators.

Other songs, though, I found cringe-worthy...I'm sure somebody out there loves the song to her grandmother, and the sentiment is certainly sweet, but the song will give you cavities.

"Red High Heels", "Small Town Girl" and "One of the Guys" all work for the genre just fine. For me, I was wanting something a little bit more pop-rock...or perhaps a little bit less country.

Having said all that...let me reiterate...I really liked this record despite NOT really liking country music. So that says a lot. Country music fans may have a new sweetheart here.

I don't know Kellie personally, although we share a hometown. Despite that, I think I can say with honest objectivity that ¼ of the songs on this record have the potential of being radio hits. The production quality is very, very high. The musicianship is absolutely top notch.

When watching the show, I suspected some of Kellie's vocal difficulties were from nerves. I always thought she'd be much better in a studio setting and I'm happy to say that is indeed the case. There's nothing weak or shaky about her vocals on this record.

There are a couple of spots on this record where her voice gives me goose bumps. That's the greatest complement I know how to give because it happens so rarely with today's music.

My favorite cuts.

Didn't You Know How Much I Loved You, Wild Ponies and of course Red High Heels.

Kellie has a bright recording future as long as they keep attaching quality producers to her projects as was certainly the case with Small Town Girl.

Kellie will be second highest seller from season 5
With more promotion and airplay and lower CD prices Kellie's sales would be over 1,000,000 by now. She should be closer to Taylor Swift than Taylor Hicks. :) TH is in a different genre and doesn't get airplay. Amazon raised the price of Small Town Girl to $14.99 just before Christmas shopping... Read More
