Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth, whose new TV pilot, "GCB," was recently picked up by ABC as a mid-season replacement, makes an appearance at the Fifth Avenue Barnes & Noble in Manhattan Sept. 13 to celebrate her latest, just-released solo recording.
Chenoweth will autograph copies of "Some Lessons Learned" at 12:30 PM at Barnes & Noble, 555 Fifth Avenue at 46th Street. The CD is now available on the Sony Masterworks label.
Her debut single, "I Want Somebody (To Bitch About)," a tongue-in-cheek song about finding unconditional love, was released May 31.
"Some Lessons Learned" was produced in Nashville by Bob Ezrin. It features songs by Diane Warren, Desmond Child, Tom Douglas, Hillary Scott, Jodi Marr, Victoria Shaw, Dolly Parton, Eric Bazilian, Gary Burr and Shane McAnnally. Chenoweth herself contributed two songs, "What Would Dolly Do?," written in honor of her hero Dolly Parton; and "Mine to Love," about a woman who struggles with an emotionally unavailable man.
The CD marks Chenoweth's fourth album on Sony. In a previous statement the Tony and Emmy-winning actress said, "Look at my recording career and it's kind of funny. It's all so different!...This album is more along the lines of what I grew up singing, like the music I sang in church in Oklahoma. When I was hired at nineteen to sing at Opryland in Nashville, that's what I wanted to do. I never anticipated my career going in all these great directions — which I'm grateful for! I'm finally getting to do what I want."
