Kellie Pickler has finally found a new home! The country music sweetheart was just announced this morning as the newest addition to the artist roster at Black River Entertainment. The label is already home to Craig Morgan, Due West, Glen Templeton, and Sarah Darling.
Gordon Kerr, CEO of Black River Entertainment, was pretty excited about the announcement. He shares:
“What’s not to love about Kellie? She’s real, she adores her fans, she’s rooted in and committed to country music and she’s genuine. How can you ask for more than that?”
Kellie added exactly why she chose the label for her new home. She left Sony Music Nashville earlier this year.
“In looking for a label partner, I was really drawn to the Black River family because they hold similar values that I do. 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.”
Kellie released her latest album “100 Proof” earlier this year. Only two singles were sent to radio from the album – lead off single “Tough” followed by the title track. “100 Proof” was produced by Miranda Lambert producer Frank Liddell and shows off the real country side of the North Carolina native.
