The 12-track LP The Woman I Am opens with her current single “Little Bit Gypsy” and closes with the poignant ballad “Someone Somewhere Tonight.” Peppered in between is the gritty “Ring For Sale,” the twangy “Buzzin’ and the memorable “Selma Drye,” making for an overall versatile release.

Her fourth studio album, Pickler co-wrote three of the songs including the title track, which she wrote with her husband, Kyle Jacobs.
Pickler told Rolling Stone earlier this year that her album will include autobiographical stories.
“I’ve made records where I’m trying to make everybody else happy and say what other people want me to say. That was miserable,” she said. “If you go in and you’re honest, people will either like you or not. You can’t please them all, so you might as well be happy with it yourself. It’s your face on the cover. You can’t change who you are to please other people.”
The Woman I Am was produced by Luke Wooten and Frank Liddell and will be released on November 11.
