Rolling Stone, Washington Post, Rhapsody, AOL’s The Boot and More Name Pickler’s 100 Proof “Best Of 2012”
2013 Promises New Music on Black River Entertainment  
NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Spearheaded by the release of her critically-acclaimed album 100 Proof in
early January and rounded out with the signing of a new record deal
with Black River Entertainment in October, the year 2012 has meant tons
of excitement and career momentum for country music songstress Kellie Pickler
Now, as the nation’s top music critics reflect on what a year it’s been
with their “Best Of 2012” album nods, Pickler celebrates the merriment
of the season with coveted placement at the top of Rolling Stone’s “Best Country Albums of 2012” list, No. 7 on Washington Post’s “Best Music of 2012” list, No. 2 on Rhapsody’s “Top 30 Country Albums for 2012,” and No. 6 on AOL’s The Boot “Best Country Albums of 2012.”
Fans can expect 2013 to also be an exciting year for Pickler as she
gears up to release a new single from her forthcoming new album.
Alongside their top rating, Rolling Stone wrote, “100 Proof may
be the best traditionalist album of the year. Pickler wraps her big
lustrous voice around old-fashioned honky tonk, rollicking road stories
and big ballads, all produced with a perfect balance of throwback twang
and contemporary sheen.” Critic Chris Richards from the Washington Post added,
“Pickler uses that big voice to sing big songs about no-good men,
absentee parents, the ghost of Tammy Wynette and her own backbone, which
suddenly sounds as if it were made of aerospace-grade
titanium.” Lastly, AOL’s The Boot says, “Kellie included what
are perhaps the most personal songs of her career, ‘Mother’s Day,’ and
‘The Letter (To Daddy)’, on the project, wearing her heart on her
musical sleeve.”
Before the music critics’ end-of-year verdicts were revealed, CMT’s Editorial Director Chet Flippo agreed, “100 Proof is
probably the best pure country album in recent years. There are raw and
troubling songs, painful personal truths and family sorrows laid bare.
But there’s also an indomitable human will to survive and even rejoice
in that survival.”
100 Proof is available in stores and online, everywhere music is sold.
