Bo Gets Back Into the Studio

Bo Bice is looking to do a little breakaway from Clive Davis himself…

Bo is working on an album in Nashville with noted country producer Frank Liddell (Faith Hill, Dixie Chicks). It’s currently scheduled for a mid-September release date, a deadline which forced Bo to cancel three shows. Bo told MTV that he wrote 31 songs for the album and is narrowing them down to the 10-12 that will make the final cut.

“I didn’t have a lot to do with the first record,” Bo told MTV. “It was very RCA and Clive-driven. It was an excellent album, but it was a revolving door of one guy in this week, another guy the next. This time I was here for every aspect [of it], and I’m a lot more comfortable.”

I think that’s a diplomatic slam at Clive, who deserves it for not allowing Bo to put more of his own songs on the CD. They were the best tracks on it…
