I want to convey the message that pride in our country is not blind faith in America…It is humble confidence in the values that the United states was founded upon.
Los Angeles, CA (Vocus) October 27, 2010
2008 Miss America Winner Kirsten Haglund, who frequently appears on Sean Hannity’s Great American Panel (Fox News Channel), announces the release of her debut EP, American Pride. The EP will be available everywhere on October 26th through Nautilus Records, and features songs that deliver a message of modern patriotism.
Inspired by her grandfather, who served in WWII and her father, a former member of the United States Air Force and the Army Reserve, Kirsten Haglund seeks to inspire her own generation with a renewed enthusiasm for the U.S. The songs of American Pride seek to transform the negative connotation associated with nationalism and revitalize patriotism. Kirsten says, “I want to convey the message that pride in our country is not blind faith in America…It is humble confidence in the values that the United states was founded upon.” She hopes her music will remind her generation of the rugged individualism that gives American citizens the will and strength to make a positive impact on the world.
Calling upon the talents of KD Cosmic songwriting duo Kathleen Lantos and David Cochrane, Kirsten Haglund enriches the songs with her angelic vocals. This valuable partnership gives Kirsten the opportunity to encourage her generation to continue to believe in the U.S. as a place of hope, freedom and the home of dreamers seeking a better life.
Since winning Miss America, Kristen Haglund has traveled around the World working with the Armed Forces and the USO. She has also served as Goodwill Ambassador for Children’s Miracle Network and was a spokesperson for Zerosmoke ©. Most recently, Kristen has become an advocate for increased awareness of eating disorders as a public health priority, speaking at Harvard University, the National Press Club and for the United States Congress. She is also a frequent contributor to Sean Hannity’s Great American Panel (Fox News Channel). Kirsten is currently finishing her Bachelor’s degree in Political Science in Atlanta, Georgia and is signed to Nautilus Records.
