OFFSTAGE: Little Big Town Rooting for Kree Harrison

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

We already know what Keith Urban thinks of American Idol contestant Kree Harrison. He has told her, “You have something amazing in your voice that, literally, my arms get covered in chills when you hit certain notes,” and “Oh, Kree. You are such a natural born singer, and it’s so beautiful to watch you sing.” And he has said her voice is authentic and believable, so, he digs her. And now Little Big Town is drinking the Kree Kool-Aid. “She is an artist, and I am so happy that she is getting a chance to use her gift on a broader platform and for people to hear her,” said the band’s Karen Fairchild. “If those American Idol judges are smart, they will keep her on the whole way. We have to vote for Kree, we just have to. She deserves this chance to shine, it is her moment.”
