Two country ladies will be releasing new albums one week apart in November, and they each revealed their respective album covers this week!
Season 5 American Idol finalist, Season 16 Dancing With The Stars champ, and traditional country flag-waver Kellie Pickler is up first with the November 12th release of her 4th studio album, The Woman I Am, produced by Frank Liddell and Luke Wooten. It’s her first album with her new label Black River Entertainment. The album will include lead single, “Someone Somewhere Tonight,” (which Kellie performed emotionally on Good Morning America “Little Bit Gypsy”(which is currently #57 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart), and a full complement of traditional-leaning tracks, several of which Kellie has cowritten, discussed, and/or performed (you can read about them/check them out here).
Now, here’s the album cover for Kellie’s The Woman I Am:
Meanwhile, Season 4 Voice champ Danielle Bradbery releases her self-titled debut album, which is produced by Brett James and Dann Huff, on November 19th. She says via press release:
It feels like I just walked off The Voice stage so it’s crazy to think I’m about to release my first album. Nashville has been so welcoming to me throughout this entire process and I couldn’t be more proud of the music we’ve created. I am so excited to get all the songs into the hands of the fans who gave me this amazing opportunity in the first place!
Danielle’s debut album include her debut single “The Heart Of Dixie” (currently #38 on the Billboard Country Airplay chart and #34 on the Country Aircheck/Mediabase airplay chart) as well as a selection of country/pop songs, several of which she has already debuted live (check out performances and demos here and here). Danielle is set to make a guest appearance on the CW’s The Hart Of Dixie, appropriately enough, and join country superstar Brad Paisley’s tour for its November dates as a support act.
What do you think of the two album covers, and how do you think each album will do in the market? Are you excited to buy one or both of these female country albums?
