Small Town Girl

This surprisingly good debut from the American Idol semifinalist is all "Red High Heels," missed family members and North Carolina spirit. In "Gotta Keep Moving," which has a cool late-Seventies Kenny Loggins vibe, Pickler stops repairing her truck to reconnect with her boyfriend; both of them, Pickler marvels in her game jet-fast soprano, will have "messed-up hair." "Didn't You Know How Much I Loved You" pines and speeds away like Tammy Wynette, while "I Wonder" just breaks your heart.
