Geri Horner has proved her dedication to launching a solo career as a country music artist by signing with Dolly Parton's management, CTK
Geri Horner has signed to country music legend Dolly Parton's management CTK.
The former Spice Girls singer - who was better known as Ginger Spice in the girl group - has been focused on relaunching her solo career for some time now and has landed a new deal with the company based in the home of country, Nashville, Tennessee, after her first stab at a country record leaked last year.
An insider told The Sun newspaper: "Geri was gutted when her first country album leaked last year.
"But some of the tracks were eight years old and she now sees the mishap as a form of cleansing.
"Geri is really excited about her new music. It will have a country theme but there's going to be a pop influence."
The flame-haired beauty previously revealed she was inspired to get back into the studio after riding a horse with her husband Christian Horner - with whom she has one-month-old son Montague - and she is hoping to use the song she sang on horseback for her record.
The 44-year-old beauty - who also has 10-year-old daughter Bluebell with her ex Sacha Gervasi - shared: "I'm back in the studio. Oh my God, I'm so excited. The strangest place that I've done recording is on horseback in Austin, Texas. Christian was ahead of me and I was singing to the horse. If I've got a melody I want to keep it."
Geri - who released a number of singles including 'It's Raining Men' and 'Lift Me Up' following her departure from the Spice Girls - has enlisted the help of some well known songwriters to help re-launch her music career
Geri has been working with Amy Wadge, who co-wrote Ed Sheeran's hit single 'Thinking Out Loud', and Eliot Kennedy - who penned the Spice Girls song 'Say You'll Be There'.
Speaking about working with Eliot, she said: "It's beautiful. Elton John and [lyricist] Bernie Taupin, how they have that collaborative feeling, we've been able to do that."
Geri's new record will be the follow-up 2005's 'Passion'.
