Also beginning today, the lyric video for the single makes its exclusive debut on Artists. CMT, the recently launched CMT Artist Platform, and can be viewed HERE.

Written by Walt Wilkins and Davis Raines, “Someone Somewhere Tonight” is a song about the human spirit as well as the power of love and redemption. 

“It’s a crazy world out there,” says Black River Entertainment’s VP of A&R, Doug Johnson.  “Ups and downs. Light and darkness. The best any of us can ask is for a true soul mate to share it with. Kellie infuses this amazing song with truth, hope and a roller coaster of emotions. I believe her!”

“This may be my favorite song I’ve ever recorded, and I am so proud to share it with my fans,” said Pickler. “I think we can all relate to this message of hope found in ‘Someone Somewhere Tonight,’ which is what makes it so special to me.”
