If you are looking for a very good alternative to American Idol or Grease: You’re The One That I Want and if you think that E.R. jumped the shark a few years ago… tune into the USA Network on Thursday nights at 10PM Eastern for NASHVILLE STAR!
The 5th season of Nashville Star began tonight with ten uber-talented country music singers. Don’t get me wrong, I’m a big fan of Idol… but there is more natural singing and performing talent in the ten Nashville Star singers than most of the American Idol wannabees combined.
Two of my early favorites based on the first show…
Angela Hacker – a Mom chasing her life-long dream after working hard to support her young boy. She has a great voice and reminds me of Bonnie Raitt but with a softer and more intense emotion.
David St. Romain – a fellow Louisanian! I thought David was the best male performer tonight and had the most mature singing voice, despite his baby face. Outstanding.
An honorable mention for first impressions goes to Dustin Wilkes – former US Marine. Think the looks of Keith Anderson combined with Billy Currington and the heart and soul of Darrell Worley.
A great first show this season.
