Black River Entertainment recording artist Kellie Pickler debuted her new single “Feeling Tonight” on SiriusXM “The Highway” this morning. The song, written by Sarah Buxton, Josh Osborne, and Jimmy Robbins, can currently be heard exclusively on SiriusXM. Produced by Kyle Jacobs and Matt McClure, this is the first new music from Pickler since she released her The Woman I Am album in 2013.
“I’m really excited about this song, and I’m looking forward to performing it on tour this summer,” said Pickler.
CMA Music Festival attendees in Nashville will hear “Feeling Tonight” live when Pickler performs on the free Chevrolet Riverfront Stage on Friday, June 12 from 12:45 PM – 1:15 PM. But that’s only the beginning of her CMA Music Festival activities. On Saturday, June 13, she will participate in Q&A and give an acoustic performance on the CMA Close Up Stage in the AT&T U-Verse Fan Fair X located in Music City Center from 11:30 AM – 12:30 PM before moving to the Opry Store booth to sign autographs from 12:30 – 1:30 PM. The Opry Store booth will also showcase products from the “Selma Drye by Kellie Pickler” line of home goods. Later Saturday night, she will perform the National Anthem to kick off the Nightly Concerts at LP Field.
Immediately following the anthem, Pickler will be presented with the 2015 Operation Troop Aid Chris Kyle Patriot Award for the acknowledgement for her unwavering and impassioned support and contributions to the United States Armed Forces and their families. The singer/songwriter has been a strong supporter of America’s military men and women and their families, and has performed on eight USO Tours thus far. This award will be presented by Operation Troop Aid founder Mark Woods and Kyle’s parents, Wayne and Deby Kyle. Pickler is the first recipient of this Award since it was renamed in honor of the late American Sniper and U.S. Navy SEAL.
CMA Music Festival also marks the first week of filming on Pickler’s new reality show, “I Love Kellie Pickler,” which will air on CMT later this year.
