Katey Sagal, everyone’s favorite, sarcastic housewife from Married With Children, is also popular for her musical talents. Fans have waited almost a decade for material, but will be happy to hear that a new record is finally being released.
Sagal explained the reason for the lapse to Billboard, “Probably a lot of writers’ block, and a real busy schedule.”

The star of Sons Of Anarchy has been busy with her television commitments, and has even shared her musical abilities on the show. However, when questioned about her time away from releasing new music of her own, she did not blame her television involvement as the reason. She credits the creators of the show with allowing her character, Gemma Teller Morrow, to showcase her music skills.
“It’s really been awesome. Every season I sing at least one song in the soundtrack. My husband, who writes the show, and Bob, who does the music, came up with great covers for me to do,” Sagal said.
Sagal looked internally when explaining the real reason behind her break from releasing albums, though during that time she was still actively involved in other avenues of performing music. “I love to play music, and I was playing gigs and doing a lot of songs off my other records. I thought ‘I really need to have some new songs.’ I’ve been trying to write, but I realized that I like the process of recording song and finding songs. It kind of came out of necessity of wanting to get to it. I couldn’t wait on myself anymore,” she said.
Sagal has taken to Twitter to promote her new album, Covered, and also to keep her fans up-to-date on public appearances.
