It’s been over three years since Kellie Pickler was in the top 10.
Now she’s ready to start 2012 off with another hit single. Kellie has been up and down over the last few years, but her latest single has heart, passionate, and plenty more to offer country radio. Check out 100 Proof.
100 Proof – Kellie Pickler
The first sentence is a little misleading. Kellie Pickler has been a country hit maker for going on six years. Her singles have always done well on the charts. All have made the top 30 on the country charts. And you can ask any artist and they’ll confirm that hitting the top 30 is no easy task.
Now, Kellie is back with her second single off an upcoming album.
100 Proof will be the title track from the new album due out later in 2012. The single is sure to be a hit in the next few months. The song is sultry, seductive, and oozing with burning passion.
I think 100 Proof could be a return to the top ten for Kellie. I have to admit, though that I thought her last couple singles were worthy of reaching the top ten as well. This time around I think people will connect with this track. There is plenty to like. 100 Proof is about the love between two people. They are crazy for each other. They feel each other’s pain. They feel each other’s pleasure. It’s all about enjoying the moment with these two. They want to spend every minute of their lives together, but they don’t look past what’s happening right now. They’re too busy enjoying each other.
Songs like this are tough to gauge on the radio charts. Sometimes they really hit home. It takes the country audience being in the right mood for something like 100 Proof to hit. I think there could be a big audience for this track and we could be hearing more of Kellie in the new year.
I think it’s a great thing.
