Hope this blog finds you well and gearing up for a fun summer!!
I am just getting back to LA and settling in a bit. As you may or may not know, I was in Gallatin (my home town) where I did a performance for Volunteer State Community College, I went to NY, and then to Mexico. Three weeks on the road makes for a lot of luggage and laundry! If you have a history of alcohol abuse or drug abuse or dependency, be sure to let your doctor know as modafinil can adversely affect you. page. This drug is only to be taken by adults with sleep problems and should not be prescribed for children. Ambien.
The show in my hometown was pretty fantastic. It was such a treat to go home and do a show for the people who have known me all my life and encouraged me along the way. It was an emotional night as I was proud of myself and overwhelmed by the support. It was like everything up that point all made sense as I reflected on my journey. Not only was I presented the Key to the City, the college started a music scholarship in my name. That was pretty awesome!
After that show I was off to NY for a couple of very important meetings with Disney/ABC. I’m sure you’ve heard the news that I will be a part of a new daytime talk show premiering on ABC daytime in Jan 2012. (Happy Birthday to me!) The show is tentatively called, “The Revolution”. I will be co-hosting with fashion expert, Tim Gunn and fitness guru Harley Pasternak. Hosting a TV show has been a (long-term) goal of mine since American Idol. Eight and a half years later, here I am. Writing this in a blog is very surreal. I just can’t believe it! The day I received the news I was completely blown away and shocked. So I am very excited to share this news with you and thank you for all of your encouragement and support over the past several years. I hope you enjoy the show!
Once I left NY I went to Mexico where I performed for Club Atlantis at the Club Med in Cancun. I had never been to Cancun and I must say it was breathtaking and I sure needed a few days of down time to relax and chill. That’s exactly what I did. It was fantastic. After a few days of rest, I must admit I was eager to get back to work.
I know you all are asking, “What about the music?” Well, I am so glad that you asked. LOL. I recently started a new company called I AM Entertainment. I am proud to announce that I will be releasing my music as an independent artist this time around under the company. I know that you are anxious to know when the new music is coming and it is coming very soon. First, I want to ask you a question, “Would you cast your vote to help me and my team determine the next radio single?” Of course you would, right? Well, this is what we are doing, in a few weeks my team will be launching a voting campaign via Facebook. We will be posting 3 audio clips of my new songs that you, the fan, can vote for. Which ever song you vote for the most will be the next song at radio. I encourage you to get as many people as you can to go to the fan page and vote for the single, the more the better, right? I hope you are as excited as I am! I have been writing music for the past year and I can’t wait to see and read your comments. If I know one thing about my fans…. you are honest!!!! That’s what I love about you the most! So with that being said, let’s get this party started. Thanks for your patience and support. Thanks for making me a successful recording artist. Let’s get another hit on the charts!
More news to come, stay tuned!!!!
Nothing like a little video from the olden days with some our favorite quotes from her Idol days…”I thought you were sexy, you suck,” “You’re gonna make me cry, really, seriously,” and “You can sang.”
Kim stops at News Channel 5 in Nashville to talk about her upcoming concert at the Volunteer Community College on Sunday April 17, in her hometown of Gallatin.
Some very exciting news to share with you. Kim will co-host a new show for ABC with the working title The Revolution, a daily show about health and lifestyle transformations. The show comes from J.D. Roth and 3 Ball Productions, who also produce The Biggest Loser, MasterChef, and the upcoming ABC series Extreme Makeover: Weight Loss Edition.
The Revolution will focus on helping viewers make positive changes in many areas of their lives, from relationships, food, family, style, home design, finance, and more. The show will be hosted by a team of experts as well as rotating guest contributors. The team will be led by fashion consultant Tim Gunn of Project Runway fame, and also includes Locke and celebrity trainer Harley Pasternak.
The new lifestyle show will premiere in January of 2012, and will likely air in one of the time slots vacated by the long-running ABC series All My Children and One Life To Live, both of which were canceled today.
“While we are excited about our new shows and the shift in our business, I can’t help but recognize how bittersweet the change is,” said Brian Frons, President Daytime, Disney ABC Television Group . “We are taking this bold step to expand our business because viewers are looking for different types of programming these days. They are telling us there is room for informative, authentic and fun shows that are relatable, offer a wide variety of opinions and focus on ‘real life’ takeaways. A perfect example of this is ‘The View’ and that factored into our decision. ‘The Chew’ and ‘The Revolution’ are in the same vein and will be great additions to the line-up, with ‘The View’ serving as an ideal foundation from which to launch these programs. They will also provide enormous opportunity for the creation of ancillary businesses and growth.”
