    • Kellie: (On how close she was to not auditioning for "American Idol") My grandpa and I went to Greensboro, N.C., together for the audition. There were like between 8,500 and 10,000 people there at the coliseum. I'm not going to lie. We sat down and everyone around us was doing vocal warm-ups and practicing their song. And I was really intimidated. Not just a little intimidated. I was very intimidated by everyone around me. And I looked at my grandpa and I stood up and said, 'Come on, Grandpa, let's go. There's no way in the world they're going to give me a second look!' And he said, 'Kellie, what have you got to lose?' And I said, 'You know what? Nothing. All I have to lose is that job at Sonic, so I'm just going to stay and wait it out.' And thank God I did because look at what I would have missed out on. So, you should never doubt yourself because you never, ever know what's around the corner.

And then the biggest guy in the band came out dressed in drag, with red stilettos and a blond wig - he was supposed to be me.

  • I love Kellie Pickler, then again, what person with a heart could hate her?

    The cute little country blonde hails from small town Albemarle in North Carolina. She sure looks good in a pair of red high heels, and still manages to make you cry with her emotion packed songs on "Small Town Girl." I just know Kellie will be embraced by the country music industry. She also has charm and wit that will take her far in life.
  • Awesome artist with a wonderful voice!

    Oh, such an awesome artist! When I first heard her hit "Red High Heels", I loved that song! When I first heard OF it, I thought it was going to be a stupid song, but when I heard it, I thought it was an awesome song. I gotta tell ya, "Red High Heels" is a hit that you'll want to hear again and again and again. Her second song "I Wonder" was just simply touching as well.moreless
