She’s gone from small-town girl to the top of the country charts, and now singer-songwriter Kellie Pickler is bringing her hits to the Mystic Showroom stage Thursday, April 25, at 7:30 p.m.
Pickler first gained national attention in 2005 during the fifth season of American Idol, finishing sixth and signing a recording contract that led to her 2006 debut album, Small Town Girl. Her first album produced the hit singles “Red High Heels” and “I Wonder,” and Pickler’s self-titled follow-up album included the Billboard Top 10 hit “Best Days of Your Life.” She has also been a prominent supporter of the United Service Organizations, and has completed six USO tours to date. Rolling Stone magazine named Pickler’s latest album, 100 Proof, one of the “Best Country Albums of 2012,” saying it “may be the best traditionalist album of the year,” and hailing her “perfect balance of throwback twang and contemporary sheen.”
Tickets to see Kellie Pickler at 7:30 p.m. Thursday, April 25, in the Mystic Showroom are available for $39 and $49. Contact the Mystic Box Office at 952-445-9000 or go to mysticlake.com for more details.
Born into an unstable family in North Carolina, the aspiring singer was raised by her grandparents who encouraged her singing talents and provided her the strength to become a country starlet. Following high school, Pickler became a beauty queen and participated in Miss America and competed for Miss North Carolina in 2004 before auditioning for American Idol in 2005. Pickler auditioned with Martina McBride's "A Broken Wing" and she was immediately heralded as a frontrunner. While Pickler didn't win the competition, she was signed to BNA Records and toured along the American Idols LIVE! Tour 2006 which tested her live performance chops.
Picker debuted her first single, "Red High Heels", in 2005 which earned her a nomination for "Breakthrough Video of the Year Award" at the CMT Awards. She then released her debut effort, Small Town Girl, which topped the Billboard Country Albums chart. Pickler co-wrote five songs on the disc including the autobiographical tearjerker, "I Wonder". The album was eventually certified Gold and Kellie Pickler tour dates were slated on the opening stage of Brad Paisley's Bonfires & Amplifiers concert tour. In 2007, Pickler was awarded the Songwriter Award for "Red High Heels" by ASCAP and in 2008, she received the same award for "I Wonder" which also won three statues at the CMT Music Awards.
Pickler released her sophomore album, Kellie Pickler in 2008 which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Country Albums chart. The album featured the hit single, "Best Days of Your Life", which became her first top ten track and earned Pickler a Platinum plaque. The single was co-written by country superstar, Taylor Swift, who is also a good friend. Kellie Pickler tour dates were scheduled on the opening stage for Taylor Swift on the Fearless Tour in 2009. Currently, Pickler is in the studio putting the final touches on her third album. A new single, "Tough", was released in June, 2011 and will certainly be her next hit. Kellie Pickler tour dates are currently scheduled across the US. She is country music's sweetest and most sincere singer.
