Kellie Pickler performs a new song called “Rockaway” at a recent concert. Kellie co-wrote the tune with Barry Dean and Brent Cobb.
Kellie, currently putting the finishing touches on her 3rd studio album, tells Taste of Country, “I’m really excited about the direction we’re taking,” he says, “I’ve been able to work with some amazing musicians and writers. We’ve had so much fun in the studio. It’s really been such a blessing. It’s really been an incredible experience so far. We are very close to wrapping this whole thing up. We’ve still got the photo shoot and the artwork and what not, and then it will be ready to set out on the shelf after they distribute it all and make all the copies. I’m excited.”
“I really hope people dig the direction we are headed,” she continues. “There’s lots of fiddle, lots of steel, and some of my favorite instruments. So I’m happy with where we are and where we are headed.”
Kellie is set to shoot the music video for her current single, “Tough” next Tuesday.
What do you think of Kellie’s new “old-school” vibe? It’s cool that she’s sticking to her roots, rather than heading in the pop/country direction.
