This Is Country are writing their own album. They have retained their old-time country sound and true lyrics, but injected a contemporary feel. The first two tracks, "Don't Hurt Me" and "Blonde Whiskey Drinker" were released at the end of 2015.
Kelly wrote "Don't Hurt Me" in 1987, but she teamed up with Pete to change a few things, and it came back to life in December 2015.
"Blonde Whiskey Drinker" was written in June 2015 while Kelly was at a bingo hall sipping a glass of whiskey. The song is about a blonde woman who enjoys a whiskey. She does all the normal womanly things such as cooking, housework, and bringing up children, but the one thing on her mind is music.
Both tracks will be available to buy on iTunes from early 2016.
