Kellie Pickler’s bland Small Town Girl conjures no superlatives. In fact, it’s awfully hard to take the project seriously because of the (presumably) crass commercial motives behind it: Blond, twangy American Idol winner Carrie Underwood sold 4 million albums, so blond, twangy Idol contestant Pickler should do the same. But while Underwood’s voice is rich, round, and passionate, Pickler’s is a wisp. The songs do nothing to advance her image: The single ”Red High Heels” (”I’m about to show you just how missin’ me feels — in my red high heels”) is meant to evoke Shania Twain. It barely summons Carrie Bradshaw. She even references her Idol calamari flub. Pickler’s not without talent — she proved herself such a lively and even astute presence on The View this summer. Which, come to think of it, does conjure a superlative: She’d be the best singer on that show.
