Doug Johnson, VP of A&R at Black River, sees Kellie as the total package. “Kellie Pickler –great singer, captivating performer, the heart and soul of what makes our format incredible and authentic. Deep roots plus relevance equals a true artist. Anyone who loves country music deserves to turn on their radio and hear Kellie Pickler. I am honored to have the opportunity to help share her music with the world.”
