LOS ANGELES (AP) - Bubbly blonde American Idol finalist Kellie Pickler has landed a record deal with country label BNA Records and 19 Recordings, the label founded by Idol creator Simon Fuller.

First up for the 20-year-old North Carolina native, whom Idol judge Simon Cowell once deemed a "naughty little minx," will be a single scheduled for release in September. Her debut album will arrive Nov. 14. "I've always dreamed of getting a record deal, so now my dream has come true!" Pickler said in a statement released Monday by Sony BMG, parent company of the Nashville-based BNA.

Pickler is currently on the American Idols Live cross-country tour and "will record the album in between tour dates," according to the statement.

Her twangy rendition of Patsy Cline's Walkin' After Midnight can be heard on the American Idol: Season Five compilation CD.

Other Idol alums signed to 19 Recordings include fellow season-five finalist Chris Daughtry and past winners Kelly Clarkson, Fantasia and Ruben Studdard.

This is just so wrong. We are living in a world where Kellie Pickler is getting a record deal before Elliott and Paris. However, I can see why they signed her. And before I get murdered here....depending on what kinds of songs they put out I can see Kellie selling more than Katharine

With her putting out a country album... I am quite sure she'd outsell Katharine.

Oh yeah, she's totally cut out for the country scene and can handle it. I'm sure she'll do just fine.
Not sure how many kudos to give her though, since I figure pretty much anyone could outsell McPee, lol.

Great news!
Elliott does have a record deal. Apparently he was on TRL talking about recording his album. Nothing official has been announced, but it doesn't sound like he signed with Clive.
There's also rumors that Paris has a deal with J Records. An official statement hasn't been made either.
