Can you believe it’s been 10 years since Kelly Clarkson won American Idol?!?? I can’t either, but the musical journey is faaar from over according to Clarkson herself!
Clarkson is set to give her fans even more of what they’ve wanted since the day she won – and that’s more music! Clarkson is scheduled to release a CD compilation of the best she’s got entitled “Greatest Hits – Chapter 1″ in November. The album will also include some new music according to a blog she posted on her official website.
“…It’s been a decade now since I won American Idol. Sometimes it feels longer because although it has been exciting that was a lot of pressure to have as a 19 year old girl. To own a company, lead an organization as a business woman, and be able to create music I’m proud of has been tough, but inspiring, for me. To celebrate the strength and longevity that my fans, friends, and family have supported me with I wrote this song “Catch my Breath” with one of my best friends that has seen me through everything. This song represents who I’ve been, what I’ve felt, and where I’m headed as not only an artist but as a 30 year old that is now smart enough to know that it’s time to stop, catch my breath, and be proud of not only what has been accomplished but of all the people that have helped me become the woman I am today. The song will be part of my first ever greatest hits (!!) coming in November. Thank you everyone that has been a part of my career and life. Here’s to another decade of passion and fun! I hope you like the song…its coming next week!”
It’s been quite a journey for the songstress beginning with the single she released after winning the first season of American Idol…”A Moment Like This”
And she hasn’t stopped since…as seen by the success of her most recent release “Dark Side” which has been seen over 11 million times on Youtube…
Just think of the hit songs that she’s put out in between those two…
“Because of You”
“Since You been Gone”
“Behind these Hazel Eyes”
“Don’t You Wanna Stay” with Jason Aldean
“Mr. Know it All”
“My Life would Suck Without You”
Wow. She may have to make it a double CD release!
