Kellie Pickler

Kellie Pickler was raised primarily by her grandparents, Clyde Sr. and Faye Pickler, in North Carolina. A former high school cheerleader, Pickler auditioned for Season 5 of ‘American Idol’ in Greensboro, N.C. — she sang Kelly Clarkson’s “Since U Been Gone” and Martina McBride’s “A Broken Wing” — and ultimately finished sixth in the competition. Post-’Idol,’ Pickler signed with 19 Recordings / BNA Records and released her debut single, “Red High Heels,” in September 2006. She put out three albums on the label — ‘Small Town Girl,’ ‘Kellie Pickler’ and ’100 Proof,’ with the first two going to No. 1 — before signing with Black River Entertainment and releasing ‘The Woman I Am’ in 2013. The same year, Pickler was crowned the winner of Season 16 of ‘Dancing With the Stars.’ In 2012, she very publicly showed her support for her friend Summer, who was battling breast cancer, by shaving her head on ‘Good Morning America,’ and has continued to fundraise for the cause in various ways.

Kellie Pickler Talks Upcoming Reality TV Show: ‘We’re Pretty Normal’

Kellie Pickler is set to star in a new reality TV show, tentatively titled I Love Kellie Pickler, which will debut this fall. The show, which will focus more on Pickler's personal life with her husband Kyle Jacobs than her life as a singer, is being produced by Ryan Seacrest. But while Pickler has already spent plenty of time on the small screen, first on Season 5 of American Idol, then taking home the mirror ball trophy on Dancing With the Stars in 2013, she says that people may be surprised to see who she really is behind the scenes.

Even in the Digital Age, Albums — Especially Vinyl — Still Matter

In the digital age, music is often talked about in terms of singles and MP3s, not full albums and records. It's common for artists to put out new releases digitally before releasing physical copies, or to simply skip a physical release all together. However, over the last several years -- whether because they think they're cool, they like having something tangible to show for their money or they think the sound quality is superior -- many music fans have been flocking to vinyl ... and many artists are thrilled to supply them with what they're after.

They love their pets fiercely and with utter devotion, like they're part of the family (which, as any pet owner will tell you, they are). And even though country stars have incredibly taxing schedules, featuring plenty of public appearances and long tours, they still make time for the furry friends in their lives.
