It was announced today (10/8) that Kellie Pickler has signed a recording contract with Black River Entertainment.
“From our initial meeting, it was clear to me how much the entire team respects the artists’ musical vision, and I’m really looking forward to getting back into the studio to record and release new music to country radio,” said Picker.
“Anyone who loves country music deserves to turn on their radio and hear Kellie Pickler,” said Doug Johnson, VP of A&R at Black River. “I am honored to have the opportunity to help share her music with the world.”
“She’s real, she adores her fans, she’s rooted in and committed to country music and she’s genuine,” praised Gordon Kerr, CEO of Black River Entertainment. “How can you ask for more than that?”
Pickler has spent the past 6 years with 19/BNA Records for whom she released three albums after appearing on American Idol. Her 2006 debut album, Small Town Girl, sold 800,000 copies and contained the breakout singles, “Red High Heels,” and “I Wonder.”
In 2008, the Albemarle, North Carolina native released her self-titled sophomore record featuring the Taylor Swift co-write and first Top 10, “Best Days of Your Life.”
Pickler co-wrote six of the 11 tracks on her current Frank Liddell and Luke Wooten-produced release, 100 Proof, which she is currently touring to support. She returns to co-host Anderson Live today (10/8) alongside Anderson Cooper, establishing herself as the only co-host to appear twice in history of the show.
Black River is also home to recording artists Craig Morgan, Sarah Darling, Due West and Glen Templeton. The company operates the newly renovated Ronnie’s Place and Sound Stage recording studios, Black River Records, Black River Publishing and Black River Management.
