Some Hearts by Carrie Underwood

Oklahoma native Carrie Underwood got Nashville's attention in an unusual way—by winning the TV talent show American Idol—but her debut is state-of-the-art mainstream Music City product.

Not that there's anything wrong with that, not when it's this vibrant, heartfelt and energetic. A belter in the Martina McBride mold, Carrie wisely chooses songs appropriate to her age (22), focusing on stories of young people leaving home to chase their dreams and make their own mistakes. She makes a few of those mistakes here, but by and large Some Hearts is a heartening debut.
