Jessica Simpson's Album Is Due Out September 9

Jessica Simpson's long-awaited country album is due out September 9, her father Joe tells Usmagazine.com. "It’s going to be a great year," he told Us at a taping of Pete Wentz's new show F'N MTV in Hollywood Thursday. "It’s 9-9 — she’s into nines this year," he added. "We hope it’s a wonderful joy. It feels really good. She is extremely happy."

The video for "Come on Over," her first single, debuts on her Web site Saturday. "Next week it’ll be on CMT," Joe said. Joe said his daughter — who turned 28 Thursday — is perfect for country music, calling it "the heartland of America. "We forget on the East and West coasts that there is a whole country in between," Joe said. "That’s our home, and that’s Jessica’s home."

Asked why she recorded a country album, Jessica told Billboard earlier this year: "I am a country girl. I grew up in Texas, and country music was what I listened to." Citing Martina McBride, newly single Shania Twain, Faith Hill and Reba McEntire as inspirations, she said, "I think there is a strength in female country artists."
