I'd definitely say Mean is one of her most Country songs though, definitely pretty inspired by The Chicks. But yeah, overall it's not super Country outside of the songwriting. I don't think her debut is bad by any means, the songwriting is there and it has gems like Cold As You, A Place In This World, Our Song, etc. But her vocals were just super underdeveloped and not it at the time dd. That's why I'm most excited about hearing the re-recording for that one. Yeah Speak Now is fantastic, it's honestly probably still my favorite (a lot for sentimental reasons but the quality of the album is SOLID). Pre-folklore, I'd say it was overall the finest display of her songwriting talent.
