Her debut contained many great songs and some superb performances. Her second was more to the pop side of country. Her third is as country as could be and her best so far. It is full of attitude, great country songs, great vocals and great backing. It starts with the excellent Where's Tammy Wynette and that has the great line 'i feel torn between leaving him and killing him'. Unlock that honky tonk has a great beat. Stop cheatin me has the old classic country feel. Tough is another highlight. Other highlights include the moving Mothers Day......powerful. The album is full of great songs and a lively and sensitive production. Highly recommended. One of the albums of the year?

Firstly what a great review by Mr Martinez ,full marks to you sir for stating what a superb COUNTRY music cd this is. Previous albums by the modern breed of country girls are far too much rock and shouting orientated . I have played this cd 4 times today and yes there are a couple of tracks which blast a bit but the majority are excellent. One of my favorite country songs ever is "I wonder" and there are a couple of tracks on here that get close to it (but not surpass it).
Very well done to Kellie on a marvelous variety of songs. More of this type of country please,Carrie and Taylor (who?) please take note.
Track 7 is my favourite song "Mothers Day" followed by track 11 "The Letter".
Please purchase this album if you liked artists like Loretta Lynn and Catherine Britt,will USA play this on there country radio stations,I think not as they are obsessed with male rocky singers who sound all the same and lack good songs.
You will not be disappointed if you appreciate fine lyrics and excellent singing and traditional country music.
One to note for the furture "Samantha Novacek" from last weeks usa idol,the finale note but one "Your's" WOW.

Pickler's third studio album finally finds the country girl in her stride. From the opening honky-tonk trio; to the deeply personal 'Mother's Day' and 'Letter'; to the beautiful 'Rockaway' and '100 Proof': this album is a testiment to what country music SHOULD be all about in 2012. An album hasn't sounded this fresh since Lee Ann Womack's 'There's More Where That Came From', and certainly takes on Eric Church's 'Chief' to boast the finest collection of songs since LAW's 2005 release.

Much as Womack, Pickler isn't enjoying much radio-attention of late, as programmers opt for the sappy, pop productions cater made for the teenage audience. I'd be surprised if they embrace an actual COUNTRY record, but heck, even if they don't, it doesn't matter. This is better than anything they'll play in their top 40 spins.

If you only dabble in one country release this year, let it be this.

Kellie makes a complete departure from her previous albums to make a traditional country music album,
while still giving it a modern commercial feel.

Some of the strong old school sound can be heard with songs such as Where's Tammy Wynette, Unlock That Honky Tonk and Stop Cheatin' On Me.
While the more commercial sound can be found with Turn on The Radio And Dance, Rockaway and Mother's Day.

Produced by Miranda Lambert's producer Frank Liddell and Kellie having co-written half of the album 100 Proof showcases what Kellie Pickler is really all about, and that is singing real country music.
Even if ,like myself, you're not a fan of the traditional stuff 100 Proof will have you converting!

Prime Cuts: Stop Cheatin' On Me, Tough, Turn On The Radio And Dance, Rockaway.

The singles released from the album were Tough and the title track, but my favourite tracks are Unlock that honky tonk and Little house on the highway. Another great song is Where's Tammy Wynette?, Of course Kellie knows where Tammy is, but it seems that Kellie misses Tammy's music. It occurs to me that if there are young singers out there who like to sing plenty of sad songs, they might have trouble getting airplay on American country radio these days; they might have a better chance in folk or Americana, but I digress.

This a great album, although I see that it didn't sell anything like as well in America as her two previous albums, which is a pity, because there is so much to like about this album.

Great album-a very grown up Kellie gives her vocal talent to what I can only consider her best album..
I like all the tracks and every one seems to have some real meaning-in these days of mass produced country for the wider audiance-this is a real refreshing change.
Not that I dont like a lot of the mass produced stuff !! its just nice to hear a real album thats not trying to fit a sterio type..
If you like old style country with a modern feel you will love this..
Thanks to all involved for getting this cd an inspiring and confident move..
More of the same please..

I love all of Kellie Pickler's albums but this one is the best so far. She is by far my favourite of the 'new' country singers from the last few years. Her music is most definitely country while still sounding modern. She is the only one of the modern country singers I could say is 100% country. It's hard to explain but she is sort of modern traditional country. I know that makes no sense.

My favourite song is 'Where's Tammy Wynette'. All the songs are equally good but this one is my favourite becuase it 'name-drops' the greatest singer in the world ever... Tammy Wynette!! It is so good to hear that she is still remembered by todays country artists. Thank you Kellie.

Her best album to date,as if she wasn't impressive enough beforehand. Where as her last albums were very impressive but not exactly full on country and could be argued as Kellie not doing what she should be,this is kellie's passion for country done to perfection.
With her own hand in several of the tracks,she is clearly a talent that deserves a lot of credit. Maybe some of it will sound to nice for some,but with a voice as stunning as this,i'd say she gets away with it. So this is kellie doing what she does best,country. At less than 35 minutes,it's short,but it's all good,get it for 100 percent proof.

Purchased this item based entirely on Amazon reviews in an attempt to broaden my CD collection away from 1970's rock.
What can I say but I put it in the car player and played it all the way through enjoying it all the classic country dilemmas of unfaithful men etc. I have now read that she was winner of an American talent show but this should not be seen as a negative factor -she has the voice, the talent and a good band and production team
If I win the lottery I would ask Ms Pickler to come and gig in the garden for my family and friends
