Skylar Laine Planning to Make a Really Country Album

Skylar Laine

Many people were shocked when country spitfire, Skylar Laine was voted off of American Idol last week, but Skylar wasn’t one of them.  She confessed that she had a gut feeling she was going home Thursday night and she’s not completely devastated because she is a huge fan of Miranda Lambert and Kellie Pickler, both of whom did not win when they competed on Nashville Star and American Idol, respectively.  Skylar says, “I want to follow in their footsteps,” and she tells USA Today she’s just looking forward to getting to Nashville to begin working on an album … a really country album.  “I don’t want to be pop at all,” she says.  “I want steel guitar, honky-tonk songs, real country music. What it really is. Talkin’ about guns and all that kind of stuff.”  Although no official deals have been announced yet, there was little doubt that Skylar would end up in Nashville with a record deal after American Idol.  Even Carrie Underwood tweeted, “You’re amazing, girl! Now hurry up and get to Nashville!”
