Best Rock & Roll Performance By A Country Artist on American Idol – Todd’s Top 5

Scotty McCreery

Country has been well represented over the years on American Idol with artists like Casey James, Laren Alaina, Bucky Covington, Josh Gracin, Kelli Pickler, and of course, Carrie Underwood.  I was very happy to see Scotty McCreery win a couple years ago and it was cool to have Kree Harrison in the finals this season. What I like to seen on American Idol is the country singers rocking it just a little bit. I’m like Donny & Marie. I’m a little bit country and I’m a little bit rock-&-roll. I have compiled my top-5 list of the “Best Rock & Roll Performances by Country Artists”.

5. Kree Harrison – Don’t Play That Song

I have to be honest, I didn’t watch American Idol every week this season, but I did see this performance by Kree and it knocked me out.

4. Scotty McCreery – You’ve Got A Friend

I was so happy when Scotty McCreery won American Idol.   He didn’t do many rock performances during his season, it was mostly country.  However, I did love his version of Carol King’s classic.

3. Bucky Covington – Fat Bottomed Girls

One of my favorite episodes ever was when Queen acted as the mentor.  I remember liking almost every performance.  One that really stood out was Bucky. It was his best performance of the year.  Sorry the video isn’t the best quality.

2. Phil Stacey – Wanted Dead or Alive

Phil who?  Phil Stacey tried to be a country star for a while, but it never really worked out.  I believe the pinnacle of his career was the night Jon Bon Jovi showed up to American Idol.  It was by far my favorite episode of all time.

1.  Carrie Underwood – Alone

Carrie Underwood had so many good performances the year she one, but this is the one where I knew with out a doubt she would be a superstar.  This video still gives me chills when I watch it.
