Kellie Pickler Sophomore Release in September

Posted by Webb on 07/21/2008



Kellie Pickler’s sophomore release will be her self-titled album on due out Sept. 30.
Kellie told Country Standard Time, "I'm so excited and proud of the new album. The material on the new album is part small town girl, but also a reflection of the experiences I've had over the last two years. I've matured, some, seen a lot more of the world, and naming the album Kellie Pickler says, 'this album is me, this is who I am and where I am.'"
The lead single is "Don't You Know You're Beautiful", and is about women finding inner beauty in a world emphasizing physical beauty. Other songs include "Best Days Of Your Life," a song she co-wrote with Taylor Swift while on the road together last year. Swift also sang background vocals on the song.
The album will also feature "Rocks Instead Of Rice," a tongue in cheek look at a woman at the wedding of a former boyfriend and how much more gratifying the experience would be if the guests were throwing rocks instead of rice.
Pickler is touring this summer. She also will co-host and perform on the CMA Music Festival: Country's Night to Rock, which will air on Sept. 8 on ABC.
