    Carrie Defends Scotty McCreery against being "too country"

    Carrie Underwood defended her fellow Idol in a recent Australian interview, addressing comments that Scotty McCreery’s music is “too country.”

    She said, "I really don't understand that terminology at all... 'Too country,' what is that? I've been criticized for being 'too pop.' Everybody is too something it seems like, but the format is doing pretty good so obviously nobody is too anything. It's exciting to turn on the radio and hear traditional country and then hear Rascal Flatts and Keith Urban, which are a completely different sound. I personally don't want to hear the same song over and over again."

    I love the way Carrie defended him, she sounded so eloquent and professional and she totally killed the haters argument. And I love the picture of her in the article, she looks so pretty

    Carrie is so kind to stand up for so many of her fellow artists. It doesn't appear they have any sort of relationship, but it says so much about Carrie's character that she defended Scotty.

    It seems most artists can't win in country music; Lady A, Rascal Flatts, Carrie, and their peers are "too pop," yet Scotty is "too country?"
    The critics need to make up their minds.

    I actually think the critics may have expected him to have more of a contemporary country feel to his debut album, so they feel the need to criticize him. Perhaps they think he sounds too "old" or is singing songs too mature for his age, because traditional music seems to lean towards those aspects, but it's difficult to say.

    Oh well. No artist can please everybody; if Scotty's proud of his album that's really all that matters.

    She is now able to be the person who she never really had to defend her against the critics when she was fresh off Idol. She took a lot of crap from people who thought she "took a shortcut", "didn't pay her dues", "was too pop".... Finally she has the ability to stand in front of people like Scotty and Lauren and say, "back off, these are my babies!"
