Release date: March 2009
All I Ever Wanted is the fourth studio album by American pop rock singer-songwriter Kelly Clarkson, released on March 6, 2009 in Australia and Germany and the United States on March 10. It was her second album to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200. All I Ever Wanted has been certified Platinum in Australia and Canada and Gold in United Kingdom and Ireland.
