Radio station, Y98, reports that American Idol winner Kelly Clarkson is ready to release her new album after the new year. Her first single is “pure pop”, they report, and will be out January 5th! I can’t wait to hear it. Kelly’s forays into country music have been fine, but I have been missing Kelly the Pop Singer!
“It’s good, it’s so good!” said Kelly about the unnamed artist. “The song is so kind of out of the box for both of us, but kind of in our lanes.”
Kelly refused to drop even a clue about this mystery male crooner, but she did say, “It’s an amazing singer, and everyone loves him!”
Next up for Kelly, other than cuddling with her baby daughter River Rose, is her first annual benefit concert, Miracle on Broadway, taking place at Nashville’s Bridgestone Arena on Saturday, December 20. The proceeds will be donated to local Nashville charities.
“I had this idea randomly, and I thought maybe other people wanted to do it. I got so excited,” said Kelly. “Everyone mostly said yes,” Kelly enthused, “I kind of feel like I’m way cooler than I thought I was!”
Reba, Trisha Yearwood, Garth Brooks, Ronnie Dunn, Kacey Musgraves, Paramore’sHayley Williams, Charles Esten, Meghan Trainor, Kix Brooks and Martina McBride are scheduled to perform.
