100 Proof marks Kellie Pickler's ticket to the big leagues. Eschewing country-flavored pop for a more traditional sound, Pickler's Southern twang thrives -- and has never commanded as much attention. The tender "Long As I Never See You Again" highlights her lower register as she gently coos over an acoustic guitar. "Where's Tammy Wynette" is a sassy slice of old-school where she ruminates, "I stay torn between killing him and loving him/ He stays torn between neon lights and home." Other highlights include "Unlock That Honky Tonk," "Stop Cheatin' on Me" and "Little House on the Highway."
