NBC’s Smash Includes Country Smash “Redneck Woman”

New Broadway TV series is throwing some country songs into the mix.

NBC has a new smash with series Smash, about the creation of a new Broadway musical. So the series will be filled with all show tunes, right? Wrong!

Turns out one of the main characters, Karen, is from Iowa. So in the episode Monday (Feb. 20), Karen—played by American Idol alum Katharine McPhee—heads back to Iowa for a baby shower. And she ends up at a local karaoke bar singing the Gretchen Wilson hit "Redneck Woman."

Oh, but that's not all. In an earlier episode, Karen's rival, Ivy, sings a slower version of the Carrie Underwood song "Crazy Dreams."
