Colton Pack is back by popular demand at 7:30 PM. At 9:00 PM, Kellie Pickler will take the stage. There are many ways to describe Kellie Pickler, with spunky, beautiful, talented and charismatic just scratching the surface. But there is one word that ties them all together and brings them to life. Kellie Pickler is real. The former “American Idol” contestant saw great success with her first album, Small Town Girl, which produced three Top 20 hits, beginning with “Red High Heels”. She followed with Kellie Pickler, which produced four chart hits, including the Top 10 “Best Days of Your Life,” which she wrote with friend and then touring partner Taylor Swift. Her third album was 100 Proof, as pure a country album as mainstream artists make in Nashville these days. Rolling Stone said it “may be the best traditionalist album of the year.” With her latest release, The Woman I am, she is poised for another breakthrough.
