Thanks to country music superstar Kellie Pickler, this week I was able to do something I never thought I’d do in my life – interview a celebrity from a truck stop in West Virginia. It was an awesome interview and she was so sweet and fun to interview, even if I was travel-tired and a little star struck.
Oddly enough, my fiance and I were headed back to Ohio from Charlotte, North Carolina; not too far from where Kellie Pickler grew up. The charismatic Pickler is one of the few still-successful American Idol contestants and has found continued success with 4 albums under her belt, a 2013 win on ABC’s Dancing With The Stars and now, an upcoming fifth album and a new movie.
I grew up an hour east of Charlotte. In my small town, the best place to eat was my grandma’s! – Kelly Pickler
Kelly voices a new character to the Veggie Tales entourage, Mirabelle. The story, Beauty And The Beet, is similar to Disney’s Beauty And The Beast but with a Veggie Tales twist and the classic Veggie Tales lessons for kids.
All of [the Veggie Tales] movies have such a beautiful message… I love that, and it’s age appropriate for everyone. It’s a story about unconditional love and kindness.
With so much awareness about bullying in schools, this seems like the ideal message for kids and with a superstar like Kellie Pickler involved in this new project, it’s sure to be a hit with families.
Look for Kellie’s new album releasing after the new year.
