I don’t really like rumors. And, I’m fairly sure celebrities don’t much care for them either. But they’re always out there. The latest, according to the San Francisco Chronicle, has Kellie Pickler “secretly” dating Kid Rock. Now, the fact that it’s being reported in a San Francisco newspaper (and pretty much all over the Internet) takes a little of the “secrecy” out of the budding romance. But here’s what they’re saying about it.
Kid attended the CMT Music Award in Nashville on June 16, accompanied by Sheryl Crow. But the Globe reported that he was really there to be close to his new love, Kellie Pickler. A source told the publication that “The romance between Kellie and Kid has been the worst-kept secret in Nashville.” OK, in that case, could I have a comment from Kellie, please.
Insiders said that Kellie was talking about Kid Rock in a radio interview when she said, “I’m seeing someone. I got a man. He’s a great, great guy. We’ve been seeing each other for over a year.” She said that? Ok, let’s back up a year.
In October 2008 – that’s 8 months ago, right? Kellie was dating Kyle Jacobs, singer, songwriter, musician and producer. She said in an interview in September, that he was her biggest fan, and that he wrote two songs for her self-titled album (which debuted on Sept. 30, 2008).
But, in a Sept. 22, 2008 interview with Hazel Smith, Kellie did say (about Minnesota native Kyle): “He’s really a great guy, but no sound of wedding bells." she laughed. But that was back in September. As recently as last week she referred to Kyle as “Love” when she used Twitter to wish him a happy birthday.
So, are Kellie and Kid Rock dating? Probably … but that doesn’t necessarily mean they are dating each other. I could honestly write in this blog that Country and George Strait are married … we are, but not to each other. (Oh, come on now, that was funny – smile with me.)
If any of you haven’t seen Kellie in concert yet, she puts on a great show. Check out Kellie’s web site. She has a lot of shows up on her schedule right now, and there are quite a few with that extra icon next to “Buy Tickets” that says “Win Tickets.” If you’re close enough to any of those areas, you might want to click that little win icon and try your luck. I know I would. She will be doing the North Carolina State Fair in Raleigh on Oct. 17 – but we have a lot of time to talk about that one.
I’ve had a lot of Kellie videos up here over the past few years – so let’s stick up one of the Kid this time. It’s the one most country fans know him for … and the one a lot of country deejays seem to really like. Here’s Kid and “All Summer Long.”
Enjoy your Sunday. I’ll talk to you soon. i had an absolutely fantastic time at Aaron Tippin’s concert Saturday night! Be looking for pictures and a little review of that show real soon. The man is amazing. Talk to you all real soon.
