Let me admit right off the bat that I am not a country music fan. However, this season on American Idol 2012 I have almost become a convert thanks to contestant Skylar Laine. If there are any country music stars I do admire, it would be Reba McEntire, and I think Skylar Laine fits in the same kind of mold.
Even though I am a fan, I usually am still not all that fond of Skylar Laine’s song choices. Last week I really wanted her to do “Fancy” by Bobbie Gentry rather than the song she did. I just think it really didn’t do her justice on stage. Hell, I still want her to do “Fancy” even if the judges would probably think it is too much of a ‘storytelling’ song. That song kicks butt and only a real country star can sing it properly.
