Review: Underwood charms, sparkles at Fair

By Victoria Welch
Free Press Staff Writer

ESSEX -- Carrie Underwood is a puzzlement.

The 22-year-old singer has only one album of material to her name, but she headlines a national tour. She can play guitar, but tends to keep the instrument packed away backstage. Her merchandise items include a $20 stuffed animal wearing a Carrie Underwood T-shirt. She's a hybrid country star -- a poppy, tune-croonin', blue-jeans gal who channels Faith Hill, but covers Guns 'N Roses. Mainstream enough for the youngters, country enough for the older crowd.

Most of all, she's an American Idol that shies away from referencing the show -- and is actually pretty gosh darn good.

Underwood swung by the Champlain Valley Fair on Sunday night, joined by brand new tourmate Andy Griggs. Equipped with a seven-piece band and rock-star stage show, Underwood's plucky charm worked its magic on the enthusiastic crowd. Banter about fair food and fried candy bars peppered the space between songs about Jesus and two-timing; Underwood informed the crowd that they had managed to catch her at her goofiest as she laughed and tried to keep warm in the slight August chill.

"It's cold and the best way to beat the cold is to dance," she said. "The only problem is that I'm not very good at it. But I'll do it anyway." More...

REVIEW: Detroit

Chesney, friends pull off stadium show

The Flint Journal First Edition

By Doug Pullen

DETROIT - "We love playing here," Kenny Chesney said near the end of his revved-up Ford Field show Saturday night. I don't think he was just saying that.

The two-time Academy of Country Music Entertainer of the Year has been selling out arena dates in Detroit for the last few years, but he'd never attempted anything here as big as a stadium show before. Like everything else tried by the 38-year-old Tennesseean, it paid off with a sellout crowd of nearly 45,000 and a six-act, 61/2-hour spectacle. The event deftly showcased country's heir apparent to Garth Brooks and an emerging new guard, including Gretchen Wilson, the night's most pleasant surprise, and last year's "American Idol" winner, Carrie Underwood, the genre's most scrutinized new face.

The awesome scale of the show - at the level to which rock fans are accustomed - was not lost on the artists.

Opener Jake Owen said it was his first time performing in a stadium, and Underwood had a little difficulty working the 60-foot wide span. "We've got a big stage here; kinda gets me out of breath here trying to run across it," said the rail-thin singer.

"This has got to be the biggest building I've played in my life," marveled Dierks Bentley, who added later, "This isn't a concert. This is an event."

That summed it up. With tickets selling for $65 and $81, Chesney and his handlers seemed intent on giving a lot of bang for the buck.

Owen set the tone with a short but spirited performance that got a big cheer for the Saginaw reference in his debut hit, "Yee Haw." Blaine Larsen followed, his tradition-drenched country going over better than the jersey of new Detroit Lions quarterback Jon Kitna he donned late in his set.

Underwood had the richest voice of the night...
