Thursday, August 26, 2010
– TV actress Jennette McCurdy released her first country music release, "Not That Far Away," a digtal EP available as of Aug. 17 through iTunes. Playing the sassy Sam Puckett on the Nickelodeon TV series iCarly, McCurdy is also a singer/songwriter who has wanted to launch a career in country music.
McCurdy co-wrote three of the four tracks on the EP including the title track which she wrote with Rachel Proctor and Blair Daly and all of the tracks were produced by Paul Worley (Lady Antebellum).
McCury is currently working on her debut album. She has collaborated with Lady Antebellum's Dave Haywood and Charles Kelley and co-written with Jessi Alexander, whose credits include Miley Cyrus' The Climb, Liz Rose, who also writes with Taylor Swift and Luke Laird, who co-wrote two chart topping hits for Carrie Underwood.
McCurdy says her approach to creating her debut album was simple: "I really wanted to just be honest to myself, stay true to myself with every song and deliver a CD that I felt reflected who I am as a person and tell the stories of my life because I feel that that's what people will relate to the most. Country music strikes a chord in people's hearts that makes you think 'wow. I know exactly what they're talking about. I felt that before.' I wanted people to be able to feel the same thing and I felt that could only be accomplished if I really wrote what I knew."
