2009 is gearing up to be a big year for Kelly Clarkson.
The American Idol champion will launch a new single, "My Life Would Suck Without You," in January, followed by a new album dropping in March.
Fans of Clarkson ought to be excited for these efforts.
The singer's forgettable 2007 included poor buzz for My December, the scrapping of her tour due to faltering ticket sales and several much-publicized feuds, including one with record boss Clive Davis and another with her managers.
