Changes continue for Kellie Pickler

Tuesday, March 4, 2008 – A few years after being a waitress, Kellie Pickler was nominated for top new female artists in the Academy of Country Music awards Tuesday.

"This is really awesome. A few years ago when I was a roller skating waitress at Sonic I was never nominated as employee of the month but maybe that was because I spilled a lot of the food on the cars. Now I'm doing what I love and to get recognized for it is even more special."

Pickler's current top 20 single, "Things That Never Cross A Man's Mind," is the third hit single from her debut and gold certified "Small Town Girl." The album has yielded the hits "I Wonder," an autobiographical song about growing up without her mother, and her first single, "Red High Heels," both of which Pickler co-wrote.

Pickler spent the first part of 2008 on tour with Rascal Flatts, which ends for her this weekend after shows in Salt Lake City and Las Vegas. She's also been writing and recording music for her sophomore disc.

CD review - 100 Proof Until now, Kellie Pickler has become known in country circles more for her bubbly, Dolly Parton-esque personality than for her singing. Granted, she has had some strong singles, notably the autobiographical I Wonder, but one could be forgiven for lumping her in the pile of most former American Idol contestants who hover in and around country music, but never really make an impact. Somewhere after the release of her sophomore album, however, she started mentioning in interviews that she was ...
CD review - Kellie Pickler At this point, it's a law of television that the results of American Idol are not proportional to post-show success. Past winners are without record contracts, and, among the ranks of former sixth place finishers, Kellie Pickler (aka "Pickles") has gone from waitressing to amassing a handful of pop-country hits at only 22 years old. On her second effort, Pickler spreads her wings beyond vocals to songwriting half the 10 songs. Things kick off with the mighty message song, ...
