    Carrie Underwood wails away at Staples

    Carrie Underwood very well may be the most powerful vocalist in all of country music – not just right now, when she’s considered the reigning queen of the genre by Billboard and others, but of the last decade or two, which has provided a dearth of powerhouses and too many bland Shania Twain knockoffs. Her only real challenger to that greatest-singer throne is her primary forebear, the estimable Martina McBride, whom she emulates all too frequently yet whose high-flying glory notes amid big ballads Underwood tops with ease.

    Admiring fans and critics alike have recognized the staggering capabilities of this sweetly endearing Oklahoma native, who turns 30 in March, since she ran away with the fourth season of American Idol in 2005. But she keeps proving her potency alongside other developing skills (like songwriting, most noticeably on her latest disc, Blown Away) with each new tour, as illustrated by the flashily effective outing that stopped for a near sell-out Tuesday night at Staples Center. (It arrives at San Diego’s Valley View Casino Center on Saturday.)

    “Eight years ago,” she reflected a third of the way into her performance, “I took my very first plane ride ever to Los Angeles. And I think you know what happened after that.”

    Yes, we do: Underwood not only towered over her competition that year, she quickly emerged as the most viable candidate from that game show to achieve lasting success. Indeed, it has been heaped on her in spades, her mantle already full of awards, her string of chart-toppers the most of any female country artist (beating Reba McEntire), the demographics of her audiences still widening.

    I'm not quite sure how to feel about this review. It seems like the reviewer enjoyed the show, but then complains a lot about Carrie's lack of diversity (which...what? Carrie is probably the single most diverse artist out there these days. She can sing anything, and has proven it.)

    I liked the review! It seems the reviewer has even convinced (maybe even reluctantly) himself/herself that Carrie Underwood is the next best thing to peanut butter.

    No seriously, it seems the reviewer IN SPITE OF HIMSELF/HERSELF has found himself LOVING our Carrie! And he/she even rates her above all the stars before her!
