Kristin Chenoweth - Some Lessons Learned

Kristin Chenoweth, a.k.a. one of my favorite female vocalists, released a new album this week -- the country-tinged Some Lessons Learned. I am LOVING it. I thought I'd share a bit of a preview here --

Kristin talks about the making of the album:

The music video for "I Want Somebody (Bitch About)":

And last but certainly not least, the music video for "Lessons Learned" (oh how I love this):

Fun! Kristin is an Oklahoma girl! My husband went to the university she went to (Oklahoma City University) it has a really strong musical theater program. I tease him his degree was in computer science with a minor in tap dancing ;)

Oh my goodness, Ruth! I am so glad you featured this album. Everything I've seen Kristin in, she is just great. This album has me really curious - since I'm going out shopping tomorrow, I'm hoping to find it. =)

@Heather - HAHA! That is awesome! ;)

@Rissi - I hope to get around to a "formal" review post -- but until then I couldn't resist the clips. If you are going to buy a physical CD, check out Target -- their version has 2 bonus tracks. :)

Rissi said...

Thanks for the "tip," Ruth. The plan is to go to Target, so I'll have to check it out. (Bonus stuff is always cool!) I would rather have the physical CD (or anything for that matter, i.e., books, movies). I've even managed to *gasp* surrvive WITHOUT an iPod. Although I do and can purchase MP3 downloads on Amazon.

Ruth, my first introduction to Kristin was in "Wicked", but you know what, you have made me want to listen to thank you! I will get the CDs before I buy the MP3s

Did you ever see Kristin in "You Again?" For some reason, she totally cracks me up in that movie. I do wish she had sung in some scene though.

Oh, I did my review of "Jane Eyre." I hate telling people to check out my blog....but you should tell me what you think ;-)

Unknown said...

@Rissi - ME TOO (no iPod, that is)!!! :) Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on KC's new album!

@Ella - Oh I LOVE WICKED! Such a great show. My intro to Kristin was actually her album 'Let Yourself Go' (which is AMAZING) - and from there I sought out all subsequent albums and Broadway music.

I haven't seen 'You Again', I will have to check it out! She is too funny. I LOVED her in the short-lived TV show 'Pushing Daisies' (where she did get to sing a couple of times!).

Off to check out your blog -- never ever apologize for link recs! ;)

Rissi said...

I bought a copy of Kristin's album today (@Target!), so thanks for reminding me about it, Ruth!

Your mention of "You Again" makes me want to see that movie again, Ella - and "Pushing Daisies" was a wonderful, wonderful show. What was ABC thinking when they cancelled it!?

Unknown said...

@Rissi - Oh, you're welcome -- hope you enjoy it!

Speaking of Pushing Daisies -- I was rewatching my DVDs earlier this year, and while I think the charm of the show might not have lent itself to longevity, I do so wish they'd been given the opportunity for a third season to really wrap up some of the storylines a little less hurriedly.
