American Idol’s Country Sensation: Skylar Laine
Are you watching this season of American Idol? Country is being represented this time around by Skylar Laine. Self-proclaimed #1 fan of Miranda Lambert, the southern beauty sang the hit tune “Hell On Heels,” by Miranda’s all-girl group the Pistol Annies. Then the contestants got to perform a song by the artist who influences them the most and of course she chose Miranda. Skylar chose “Gunpowder And Lead.” She sounded great but didn’t really impress too much…a different Miranda song might have been better. Regardless what I think, she was still voted back again.
This week she switched things up and sang a Kellie Pickler song. It’s actually one of my favorites of hers…”Didn’t You Know How Much I Loved You” from her debut album.
Girl has some pipes and was even told by one of the judges that there isn’t anyone in country music right now singing like her. Even if she doesn’t win this thing, I think she will definitely find her niche in country music and have a thriving career. Skylar also sang a great country song with fellow Idol show contestant, Colton Dixon. The two performed the duet by Kelly Clarkson and Jason Aldean.
So if you like what you see, consider checking out American Idol next week and vote…Skylar was safe tonight and will be performing again next Wednesday night.
