KELLIE PICKLER Wednesday, July 22 - 7:00 pm There are many ways to describe Kellie Pickler, with spunky, beautiful, talented and charismatic just scratching the surface. But there is one word that ties them all together and brings them to life. Kellie Pickler is real. Few people speak or sing so transparently from their hearts. Few can bridge life and art, story and song, so vibrantly and compellingly. "My life is a country song," she has said on occasion, and no one who knows her or has watched her career evolve from her days as a breakout presence on American Idol would argue in the least. Over the course of three albums, hundreds of concert appearances, and a breathtaking 2013 win on ABCs Dancing With The Stars, she has earned the admiration and affection of countless fans, serving as both inspiration and role model. Now, with the release of her latest album, her first for new label home Black River Entertainment, she takes yet another long step forward. The project reflects her continuing growth as an artist and as a person. It features the instrumental talents of many of Nashville's best musicians and songs from some of the city's most talented writers, as well as some she wrote herself and with co-writers including her husband Kyle Jacobs. "This album is just Kellie Country," she says, and for a working definition we need look no further than what she wrote for the project. "When I write a song," she says, "I just write about who I am and where I've been, where I am and what I'm going through, or about people who have had an impact on me." The results here include the title track, "The Woman I Am," an honest look inside Kellie's worldview, "Bonnie and Clyde," a look at relationships with a sly nod to the well-known outlaw couple, and the truly remarkable "Selma Drye," which Kellie wrote about her pistol-packing, snuff-chewing great-grandmother.Save
