Season 5 American Idol finalist and Season 16 Dancing With The Stars champion Kellie Pickler has been preparing her 4th studio album, the 1st she will release with her new label Black River Entertainment. She recently released her new single, “Someone Somewhere Tonight” to country radio, and it was #3 most added for the country format on Mediabase this week, with nearly 30 adds. Now you can check out the demo of another song she has recorded for her upcoming album!
The song is called “Where Did Your Love Go,” and it is cowritten by up & coming singer/songwriter Kalissa Ewing (who makes her Opry debut this Friday, 5/31) and Rivers Rutherford (who has a long list of hits, including Brooks & Dunn’s “Ain’t Nothing ‘Bout You,” Brad Paisley’s “When I Get Where I’m Going,” Josh Gracin’s “I Want To Live,” Tim McGraw’s “Real Good Man,” and Faith Hill’s “When The Lights Go Down”). It’s a midtempo tune with a slight acoustic pop feel in the music, but the lyrics and vocals are country through and through.
Kellie should excel at delivering the sometimes wry, sometimes hurt, sometimes angry, and always frank post-break up tune, don’t you think?

Kellie has promised that she will be “keepin’ it country” with her new music. As the biggest star on her new label, which took out full page ads in this week’s Billboard Monday and Midweek Country Update and Monday’s Country Aircheck Weekly to promote “Someone Somewhere Tonight,” Kellie certainly seems to have Black River’s full support. Do you think that support and Kellie’s increased star power after her Dancing With The Stars win could translate into a radio hit in a time when traditional country is disappearing off country radio airwaves?
