It is a bit difficult to believe it has now been a decade since Kelly Clarkson won American Idol. Since that time she has released five studio albums, all have reached the top 3 on the album chart, and 10 top 10 singles on the Billboard Hot 100. It does seem like a greatest hits collection makes sense at this point in her career. Greatest Hits, Chapter 1 will be released November 19, 2012, just in time for Christmas gift giving. It will be preceded by a single titled "Catch My Breath" that should head to radio next week and will be available for digital purchase beginning October 16, 2012. The new song was co-written with Jason Halbert and Eric Olson. Kelly Clarkson says about the song, "This song represents who I've been, what I've felt, and where I'm headed as not only an artist but as a 30 year old that is now smart enough to know that it's time to stop, catch my breath, and be proud of not only what has been accomplished but of all the people that have helped me become the woman I am today."
