jessica simpsonJessica Simpson: Bona Fide Country Chick

Sacramento, Calif. (RUSHPRNEWS) AUGUST 26, 2008–With her new album “Do You Know” scheduled to hit stores September 9th, Jessica Simpson is pulling out all the stops to make her transition to country music a success.The “Come on Over” babe gave a rousing concert in Sacramento, California last night (August 25), looking sexy in a lacy white cleavage-baring top underneath a western-style plaid shirt with a pair of hip-hugging jeans and her usual cowboy boots.

And last week Jess joined the Country Music Association, another move to show the industry that she’s not just a flash in the country music pan.

A Simpson pal told press, “She was very sweet and seemed happy to join the organization. Being a member makes you part of the industry. It’s great for networking.”

As for the could-be controversy surrounding claims that Jess’ boyfriend Tony Romo has been calling his ex-girlfriend Carrie Underwood, Simpson is passing it off as nothing more than media hype.

“People are just trying to make a story out of nothing. I respect her and hopefully she respects me. We’ve just dated the same guy-that’s it!”
