Kellie Pickler is getting emotional for her fourth studio album.
The “American Idol” alum and “Dancing With the Stars” champion’s new album debuts on Monday (Nov. 11), and the country singer promises that “The Woman I Am” will be heartfelt and personal, and will feature three tracks she co-wrote, including one with her husband, producer Kyle Jacobs, that she calls autobiographical.
“I’ve made records where I’m trying to make everybody else happy and say what other people want me to say. That was miserable,” Pickler tells Rolling Stone. “If you go in and you’re honest, people will either like you or not. You can’t please them all, so you might as well be happy with it yourself. It’s your face on the cover. You can’t change who you are to please other people.”
