With nearly 800,000 albums sold on her debut album Small Town Girl, CMA Top New Artist nominee Kellie Pickler is excited to christen the release of her self titled, sophomore album on Tuesday, September 30 when she performs on The Today Show.
Kellie returns to the Today Show where she kicked off her first album nearly two years ago, and she visited the show again last December. On her return visit Kellie said, “The last time I was on the show they were doing a pet adoption segment and a Chihuahua peed on me. I can’t wait to find out what the next adventure will be,” she laughed. “Seriously, I’m so proud of this album, and I can’t wait to share it,” she continued.
Her Today Show performance begins a very busy fourth quarter for Kellie in which she will make numerous national television appearances including a year end stop in Times Square that will reunite her with American Idol host Ryan Seacrest as a correspondent on Dick Clark’s Rockin’ New Year’s. Kellie will also spend October and November on the road with CMA Entertainer of the Year nominee Sugarland.
Driven by the hit single, “Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful,” the new album features five songs written by Kellie including “Best Days Of Your Life,” a song she co-wrote with good friend Taylor Swift. Never one to hide her feelings, Kellie lays bare the hurt from a broken relationship with the searing ballads, “I Just Want Somebody To Love Me,” and “One Last Time.”
