Home / Music News / "American Idol" Castoff Skylar Laine Plans to Make "Real Country Music" in Nashville


Skylar Laine got the boot on American Idol Thursday, but she’s already certain of her next career move.  After she wraps up her time on the American Idol tour this summer, Skylar is headed to Nashville.

In a conference call Friday, Skylar said, “I want to make real country music, you know, like honky tonk songs — the good old country stuff.  That’s what’s gonna make me happy, and that’s what comes out when I write.”

If you watched her Idol performances, you know Skylar was heavily influenced by Miranda Lambert.  She revealed Friday that Justin Moore is another one of her heroes too.

Skylar says, “I would love to do a duet with both of them and writing with both of them, so hopefully one day I will be able to.”

The top four contestants continue on this Wednesday night at 8:00 Eastern on American Idol.
