River Entertainment continues to expand its artist roster by signing
fan favorite, Kellie Pickler. “What’s not to love about Kellie?” asks
Gordon Kerr, CEO of Black River Entertainment.  “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?”
 
“In
looking for a label partner, I was really drawn to the Black River
family because they hold similar values that I do,” shares Pickler. 
“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.”
 
Doug
Johnson, VP of A&R at Black River, sees Kellie as the total
package.  “Kellie Pickler –great singer, captivating performer, the
heart and soul of what makes our format incredible and authentic.  Deep
roots plus relevance equals a true artist.  Anyone who loves country
music deserves to turn on their radio and hear Kellie Pickler.  I am
honored to have the opportunity to help share her music with the world.”
 
Hailing from Albemarle, North Carolina, Pickler signed with 19/BNA Records in 2006 and released her debut album, Small Town Girl
The album sold over 800,000 copies worldwide and produced three
singles, “Red High Heels,” “I Wonder,” and “Things That Never Cross a
Man’s Mind.”

2008, Pickler released her self-titled sophomore record featuring
country radio hits “Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful,” “Best Days of Your
Life” (Pickler’s first Top 10 and Taylor Swift co-write) and “Didn’t
You Know How Much I Loved You.”
