Its Time for Nashville Star! Who's the First to be Safe?

Nashville Star – We’re down to nine . . . Who is staying and who is going home?

Tonight is family night on Nashville Star . . . do we have a theme?

Who’s first to go through?

Ashlee Hewitt is the first to be safe . . . .

Ashlee wants to sing “Don’t Stop Believing” by Journey. She and John Rich are talking to her about playing piano and guitar for this number. Sounds like a tall order, but I bet this one can figure it out.

Here she goes on the piano . . . and she’s off the piano and onto the guitar . . . Huge points to Ms. Hewitt for her multiple instrumentation . . . . her voice is still not winning me over, but there’s no denying the girls gives great stage . . .

Jewel – Liked the instruments and the singing, but thinks that she is still way too clinical. Needs to stop thinking.

Jeff – Compares her to Barbara Mandrell . . . I think he was positive . . . not really clear on what else he is saying (channeling his inner Paula Abdul)

John – Thinks she did great and that she is on a slow steady climb to the top of this competition.

Next up, Ashlee croons "Help Me Make it Through the Night" – Much more purely country performance . . . very good steady vocal. Shortened version – perhaps giving them a blip to perform actual country music.

Here’s a thought . . . why don’t they have them sing actual country music during the show . . . . just a thought . . .

You said that you THINK Jeff was being positive when he compared Ashlee to Barbara Mandrell? For someone to be compared to Barbara Mandrell is the ULTIMATE complement. It is an honor. He was comparing her to Barbara Mandrell because when she (Barbara) performed she played an unthinkable amount of instruments during her shows. All I know is Ashlee should be extremely proud of that comment.
