Kellie Pickler 150About Kellie Pickler:  Kellie Pickler grew up immersed in country music in the small town of Albemarle, North Carolina with the words of Tammy Wynette, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn, and Dolly Parton shaping her musical footing.   At the age of 19, she gained fame as a contestant on the fifth season of “American Idol.”  In 2006, she signed with 19 Recordings/BNA Records and released her debut album, Small Town Girl, which has gone on to sell more than 900,000 copies worldwide and produce three hit  singles: “Red High Heels,” “I Wonder,” and “Things That Never Cross a Man’s Mind.” She followed that in 2008 with her self-titled sophomore record, featuring country radio hits “Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful,” “Best Days of Your Life” (co-written with Taylor Swift and her first Top 10), and “Didn’t You Know How Much I Loved You.”  Having established herself as not only a powerful vocalist but also a songwriter, Pickler released her third studio album, 100 Proof, in 2011 to huge critical acclaim. The album was named the No. 1 Country Album of The Year by Rolling Stone and was listed on “Best of 2012” lists by Washington Post, Rhapsody, AOL’s The Boot and more. In spring of 2013, Pickler partnered with dance coach Derek Hough and won the Mirror Ball Trophy on “Dancing with the Stars.” On Nov. 11, 2013, Pickler released her new album, The Woman I Am, on her new label home, Black River Entertainment. She co-wrote three songs on the album, including the title cut. The album, which has received much critical acclaim, contains her new single “Closer to Nowhere,” as well as her recent hits “Little Bit Gypsy” and “Someone Somewhere Tonight.” Pickler is also an avid supporter of the U.S. military, having recently completed her seventh USO Tour in December 2013.
