Kellie Pickler's self-titled sophomore album to drop September 30

Kellie Pickler's Sony BMG Nashville record label has announced the former American Idol fifth-season finalist's self-titled sophomore album is scheduled to drop September 30.

"I'm so excited and proud of the new album.  I've learned so much since the first album," said Pickler. 

"The material on the new album is part small town girl, but also a reflection of the experiences I've had over the last two years. I've matured, some, seen a lot more of the world, and naming the album Kellie Pickler says, 'This album is me, this is who I am and where I am.'"

The lead single of Pickler's second album -- "Don't You Know You're Beautiful" -- was released last month.

Additional songs include "Best Days Of Your Life," which she co-wrote with pal Taylor Swift while on the road last year; and "Rocks Instead Of Rice," which Pickler penned with "Before He Cheats" writers Chris Tompkins and Josh Kear.  "Rocks" looks at a woman at the wedding of an ex-boyfriend.

The self-titled sophomore effort is produced by Chris Lindsey, with Pickler contributing to the creative process by working on arrangements, instrumentation and song selection -- a process that, due to her participation in Idol's 2006 summer tour, she wasn't really involved with on her debut album.

Pickler's debut album -- "Small Town Girl" -- dropped on Halloween 2006 and has since sold nearly 800,000 copies. 

The Idol fifth-season sixth-place finisher recently won three 2008 CMT Music Awards and has also expressed interest in appearing as a Dancing with the Stars seventh-season celebrity participant.
