She's the bestselling digital artist of all time not only because middle-schoolers buy that way but because her hold on that group is total: Has there been a point of consensus as strong since moonwalk-era Michael Jackson? She's tasteful Nashville country filtered through R&B-loving pop and pop-punk as Top 40 digests it, but with a personal and compassionate streak; a good role model for a phenomenally famous young person and a great POV lyricist, plus more proof that kids are kinder and more feminist than adults credit. If we sing her at weddings some day, you can bet it won't be premature ones.
Tuesdays, Wednesdays, 7 p.m. Starts: June 14. Continues through June 15, 2011
