Kelly Clarkson Unveils New Album Cover, Release Date, Celebrates CMA Nominations

Kelly Clarkson’s 5th album ‘Stronger‘ will be released on October 24th, 2011. Kelly revealed the artwork for her new album as well as the release date on her website. Her new single ‘Mr Know-It-All‘ has just been serviced to radio stations and is available digitally as well, and has already started charting on the Billboard Charts within a few days of its release.

Stronger‘ follows her 2009 Billboard # 1 smash ‘All I Ever Wanted‘, that spawned a handful of hits including the Billboard # 1 hit ‘My Life Would Suck Without You‘.

In addition to the release of her new single, Kelly also gets a surprise in the form of 2 nominations at the 2011 Country Music Awards for her duet with Jason Aldean ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay‘, including Single Of The Year and Musical Event Of The Year. ‘Don’t You Wanna Stay‘ peaked at # 1 on the Billboard Country Charts, becoming Kelly’s first Country # 1 hit.

This is the second time Kelly graced the upper reaches of the Country Charts. She previously peaked at # 2 with a remake of her own pop classic ‘Because Of You‘ with country legend Reba McEntire. Now that was one monster duet! And check out Reba looking absolutely stunning in the video with Kelly!

Can’t wait for ‘Stronger‘!! Definitely one of the most anticipated albums of the year!
