Kree Harrison is part of this years “country wave”, along with the already previewed Jimmy Smith and some others you’ll see in future previews. She’s not quite the Carrie Underwood of the group, she’s more like a Sara Evans/Michelle Branch hybrid, which could be cool. She plays guitar.
She has previously appeared on the Rosie O’Donnell show when she was 8 years old. She was briefly signed by Lyric Street Records when she was 12.
Lauren Alaina did really well her season. Country girls can do just as well as the boys can sometimes. If she makes the top 10, I expect big things from Kree. Like Jimmy, they both have the pipes to back up their vocal runs. I expect a decent portion of the top 10 to be country, thanks to the infusion of Keith Urban into the judging panel.

9 To 5 (her version of Dolly Parton’s song… it’s a bit different)
