I’m going to make this week’s playlists “for the ladies.”  Yesterday started off with the great Ella Fitzgerald in the pure jazz realm.  Today, in the world of country, I’ll go more modern and play some Carrie Underwood.

To be honest, I really haven’t followed much of the American Idol-type reality shows on television.  In fact, I’ve hardly EVER watched any of them in the entire history of the shows.  For one reason, there’s just become too many of them — the market’s saturated.  How do you tell them all apart?  I must say, though, that Carrie Underwood was a pretty good choice by the American Idol viewing public.

There are such a slew of new names and faces in the country music scene, it’s hard to know who’s who without a program.  The big question surrounding all of them is just how much staying power will they have?

When I say “staying power” among the women of country music, I’m talking about the likes of Patsy Cline, Tammy Wynette, Loretta Lynn, Emmylou Harris, to name just a few — the ones who’ll be around for a very long time.

I’d say that it’s a safe bet that Carrie Underwood has that kind of “staying power.”  If she hasn’t faded by now, it’s not going to happen.  She just continues to ride high on the charts, and that’s a good thing.  She’s definitely got the talent.
