EILEEN CAREY/Let It Go:
When you gotta make a living, it’s a long way from being one of the Ray Charles Uh Huh girls to being the ambassador for Super Cuts, but since Carey’s act is built around been there/done that and owning it while passing on the wisdom, it’s all good is the watch word here. Her messages don’t hit you over the head, and since Charles liked country music so much, it shouldn’t be such a stretch finding the transplanted Ohioan to LA tracking her music in Nashville. All that and she still has time to cover ‘Walking on Sunshine’. A worthy successor to the divorcee pop pioneered by Dory Previn et al in the 70s, somebody has to chart the course for the rest. This certainly won’t take the guys away from March Madness but the girls have to be doing something in the meanwhile.
