    Concert review: country singer Kellie Pickler performs in Huntington, New York

    On Aug. 9, country singer and American Idol alumna Kellie Pickler performed for her fans in New York at the Paramount Theater, situated in Huntington, Long Island.

    Pickler opened her set with “Little House on the Highway” and continued with “Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful” and “Makin’ Me Fall in Love Again.”

    “How are you doing?” Picker asked the crowd. “Thank you so much for coming out tonight.”

    She dedicated “Tough” to the tough chicks in the house and delivered an acoustic rendition of the traditional-sounding “Stop Cheating on Me.”

    It was followed by “Where’s Tammy Wynette,” “Things That Never Cross a Man’s Mind” and her previously unreleased “Lucky Girl.”

    Pickler paid homage to several traditional country artists that inspired her by singing an acapella verse of Hank Williams’ “My Bucket’s Got a Hole In It,” Loretta Lynn’s “You Ain’t Woman Enough” and George Jones’ “White Lightning.” She noted that Melinda Schneider’s “I Wanna Be Married (I Wanna Be Single Too)” is one of her husband’s least favorite songs, but since he was not at the venue tonight, she sang the sassy, up-tempo vocal.

    She continued with the power-ballad “Didn’t You Know How Much I Loved You” and she sang the highlight vocal of the evening on a stool, the emotional yet autobiographical “I Wonder,” which was well-received.

    Pickler closed with “Small Town Girl” and “Best Days of Your Life,” which she co-wrote with global singing sensation Taylor Swift. She returned for an encore performance of the fan-favorite “Red High Heels.”

    The Verdict

    Overall, Kellie Pickler was gracious towards her fans; however, in multiple instances throughout her show, especially when she performed her ballads, the band’s loud instrumentals overpowered her vocals. In addition, she took the stage almost thirty minutes late and her entire concert was a little over an hour long, which seemed rather short for most concertgoers. Nevertheless, she deserves credit for paying tribute to the traditional country artists in her set, since not many contemporary musicians do so these days.
