    ... i mean her new song... So Small.

    Faith Hill Lite.

    I'm disappointed.

    You should not be surprised. That's all she ever was.

    How many groundbreaking country females are there?

    I like Carrie Underwood. What did you want her to do?

    Something a little more Miranda Lambert-ish, with an infusion of Emmylou for spice.

    Let's just say this song is a step back from where she was.

    Miranda Lambert, whom I love, is a product of Nashville Star.

    So if you're trashing an American Idol winner, you're saying you want her to sound like someone who couldn't even win a televised singing competition.

    May not have won, but is a vastly superior performer. (And whatever happened to Buddy Jewell?)

    Underwood is country for soccer mommies.

    I like both, for different reasons. I do think Underwood has a more classically beautiful voice...Lambert sounds rougher.

    Underwood is what she is:

    1. Undeniably talented, with a powerful voice that can really make her songs stand out. I recently heard a clip of a live performance she did of "Stand By Your Man," that was easily the most powerful version of that song I've heard since the original.

    2. The product of a Nashville machine that has carefully packaged her, set her up with some pretty good songs that easily appeal to the masses and made her successful in three radio formats, which is no mean feat.

    I like her, but there's not much there I haven't heard before.
