Mickie James recently spoke about the TNA Knockouts division and her music career. Here are the highlights…
Her music career: "I released my first album in 2010, and went back in the studio earlier this year to record an E.P of six songs. But we've kind of been picked up, so we're in the process of just going back into the studio to finish the album, we'll release a single later this year and January for the album.
I've just signed with E1 music, and have them behind me and supporting me in this whole thing, you know…I'm starting to see the light, you know what I mean? I can see it starting to come into fruition. It's just been constant working at it, and it's obviously still baby steps, but this new album is slammin'. Even I can sit back and listen to it and go 'wow' this is awesome. From the musicians, to the producers, we have some of the best players in the world, it's going to be awesome and I can't wait to share it with everybody. I know I'm a country girl, but this is southern rockin' country... I just hope that people love it. So hopefully that should be out in January, and we're looking to coincide with the TNA tour when we come back. Who knows, I might do a CD release party when I'm back over here. We're in talks to try and work all those things out…I'm just really excited about it."
Her opinion of the TNA Knockouts division: "Well, there's a lack of Mickie James. It's cool, change is always inevitable and its part of the growing curve of the industry. With change comes new adversary's and storylines and character development. Who knows what's next."
