Born and raised in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma, actress/songstress Kristin Chenoweth goes back to her country music roots with her new album Some Lessons Learned, to be released on Sony Masterworks on September 13th.
Her debut single "I Want Somebody (Bitch About)" is a tongue-in-cheek song about finding unconditional love. All of the songs on Chenoweth's new album are very personal and explore her life experiences as a woman. The single will be available for sale on May 31st.
The music video for "I Want Somebody (Bitch About)" takes place in a retro hair salon and makes its debut on Country Music Television (CMT) on June 6th. During that week, Chenoweth will be very involved in Nashville's annual Country Music Fest. She is set to appear on the 2011 CMT Music Awards and perform on the finale of CMT's Next Superstar.
Some Lessons Learned was produced in Nashville by the legendary Bob Ezrin (Peter Gabriel, Kiss, Pink Floyd). This is also Chenoweth's fourth album on Sony. "Look at my recording career and it's kind of funny. It's all so different!" said Chenoweth, who counts Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Trisha Yearwood, Reba McEntire and Linda Ronstadt among her major influences. "This album is more along the lines of what I grew up singing, like the music I sang in church in Oklahoma. When I was hired at 19 to sing at Opryland in Nashville, that's what I wanted to do. I never anticipated my career going in all these great directions -- which I'm grateful for! I'm finally getting to do what I want."
Some Lessons Learned is the culmination of a natural progression for Chenoweth as a recording artist. She singles out the title track "Lessons Learned" and says, "It's about what we learn and how we learn -- and what we do with it."
