American Idol Winner Fantasia Releases Country Soul Song “Ugly”


When I heard American Idol season three winner Fantasia Barrino sing her new single “Ugly” during the American Idol finale, I was surprised how much I enjoyed it.

According to the ever-resourceful Windmills Country on Twitter, the song was co-written by Nicolle Galyon (“Automatic,” “God Made Girls,” “We Were Us”) and Audrae Mae (“Little Red Wagon,” “Heartbeat Song”). It was previously on-hold by Little Big Town for their Pain Killer record, but sadly not selected.

However, we’re thankful that the song fell into Fantasia’s hands, as her powerful voice certainly breathes life into the track’s lyrics. While I’d have loved to hear a Little Big Town version of this killer song, I’m glad we’re hearing Fantasia’s take.

And although I don’t expect this to crossover into country radio, it’s a powerful track that’s sure to become a standout in Fantasia’s catalogue for years to come.
