Carries ok , but Kelly Pickler sings way better than Carrie. Carrie strains when she sings. She's also over exposed.

Carrie and Before He Cheats were both ubiquitous, and I love 'em both. Hasn't Kenny won this award like 3 times now? I heard his concert was good...and a moneymaker. Brad Paisley is such a cutie!
