REVIEW: Musikfest

Underwood beats bugs, wows crowd

Sunday, August 13, 206
By Nora Jurasits
The Express-Times

BETHLEHEM | Beating Bo Bice was just the beginning for 2005 American Idol winner Carrie Underwood. The petite country singer wowed a sold-out RiverPlace, proving that she truly deserved the coveted American Idol title.

With a light-colored tank top and flowing skirt and a strong, sweet voice, Underwood appeared angelic under the brightly colored lights. Her cowboy boots added some country-western flair to her casual outfit. Fans also showed up for the concert decked out in their country gear with many fans wearing cowboy hats.

For those who left their hats at home, vendors were there to provide brightly colored ones.

Tandem opened for Underwood, covering popular country songs to get the crowd raring to go for the main act.

Underwood started out the show with "We're Young and Beautiful," then slowed things down with "That's Where It Is." She transitioned easily between riling the crowd up with high-energy songs and calming them back down with ballads that are labeled country but seem to defy genre barriers.

Underwood not only serenaded the 6,500-person crowd with songs from her first full-length CD, "Some Hearts," she also included a few covers of some older songs, further showcasing her versatility. She used Dolly Parton's "Jolene" to transition into her bluesy revenge anthem, "Before He Cheats."

Underwood also played acoustic for part of the performance, starting it out with her latest single, "Don't Forget to Remember Me," a song about leaving home but remaining close to loved ones. She dedicated the song to recent high school and college graduates after noting she received her college diploma from Northeastern State University in the mail earlier in the day. She dedicated the song to mothers and daughters in the audience, adding, "Since I can't sing it to my mom, I'll sing to all of you."

After singing the bittersweet, "Lessons Learned," Underwood told the crowd that she was learning a lesson at that very moment.

"I'm learning how to sing with bugs dive-bombing me in the forehead," she said.

In addition to covering Parton's "Jolene," Underwood covered an unexpected song, Guns N' Roses' "Sweet Child O' Mine."

Underwood is touring the United States to support "Some Hearts" and will join Brad Paisley's Time Well Wasted 2006 tour in late September.

REVIEW: Musikfest

Idol winner Carrie Underwood packs plenty of surprises at Musikfest

By Keith Groller Of The Morning Call
In an interview before her concert Saturday night at Musikfest's RiverPlace, Carrie Underwood promised a few surprises.

Turns out, she wasn't kidding.

Who would have thought that the country-girl sweetheart would wow the sellout crowd of over 6,500 with near-perfect versions of Guns N' Roses' "Patience" and "Sweet Child O' Mine?"

Underwood, the 23-year-old winner of "American Idol 4," said she would perform some cover songs to go with songs such from her own chart-topping, debut album, "Some Hearts."

But the audience, ranging from grandmothers to grade-schoolers, probably expected classics from the playlists of Martina McBride or Reba McEntire.

Imagine their surprise when they heard Axl Rose.

Underwood looked like a Nashville princess with a white tank-top and pink skirt complemented by cowboy boots. Several songs, however, were more much Pat Benatar than Pat Boone.

The entire 16-song, 70-minute performance was louder and edgier than songs like her platinum-selling country hit "Jesus Take The Wheel."

No one seemed to mind.

That's because not only did Underwood attempt to bust loose from the sappy-sweet country mold, but she did it remarkably well, showcasing the vocal power and gusto of the first "American Idol" winner, Kelly Clarkson.

She delivered the country goods as well, flawlessly hitting "Don't Forget To Remember Me" during an acoustic section, in which she played guitar, and mixed in a shortened version of Dolly Parton's "Jolene."

However, Underwood, who seems to rank highly as both a role-model for young females and as a sex symbol for young males, is far from a polished performer.

Some may find her uneasiness on stage to be part of her charm, but more pizzazz would be nice. Her idea of between-song entertainment was to sip water, chuckle about the bugs hitting her face and to thank everyone -- over and over again -- for coming out.

Those looking for jokes, comments about "how wonderful it is to be Pennsylvania" or other schtick were out of luck. There's an innocence and sincerity about Underwood that has yet to be tarnished by big-time success. As the Oklahoma native said, "Just a year and a half ago, I was just a typical college student." Her diploma may have arrived in the mail on Saturday, but she's still got that school-girl naivete.

Tandem, a Pennsylvania-based country band that primarily did covers of Big & Rich, Montgomery Gentry, Hank Williams, Jr., among others, slowly warmed up the crowd with a 13-song, 55-minute set that deserved a better response than it received.
