The Winner Is

Previous Nashville Star winners have launched their careers with an album of mostly new material, but Angela’s debut is mostly taken up with studio versions of the songs she covered during the TV season. Angela’s likeably gritty voice sounds even better in a recording studio than it did on the Star stage, so her versions of chestnuts like “When Will I Be Loved” and “Do Right Woman” are perfectly pleasant. But while The Winner Is makes a decent souvenir, it also delays the moment that we’ll get to hear Angela make an artistic statement all her own.
