I wasn’t much of a Kellie Pickler fan during her sixth-place run on season 5 of American Idol — she lost me at “What’s a ballsy?” — and her latest video for the maudlin ballad “I Wonder” probably isn’t going to change that. The clip kind of reeks of, “Hey! Let’s save money by shooting Kelly getting off her tour bus, getting her makeup done, and doing a sound check the next time she’s in Nashville. Oh, and let’s get a kid — any kid will do — to play a sort of spectral mini-me.” Not particularly original or interesting, but on the plus side, Kelly seems to have traded in the hideola ’50s housewife curls she was sporting in her most recent Idol results-show appearance, and believe it or not, I’m actually not minding the song. That Pickler kid, she’s a classic trier. And who doesn’t like a trier?
