Kellie Pickler Has Broadway Dreams
There’s no stopping Kellie Pickler, as she just keeps getting better and better. First, the singer earned sixth place on ‘American Idol’ during Season 5. Then, she took home the top prize on Season 16 of ‘Dancing With The Stars.’ Now, she has an even bigger dream — Broadway.
The 27-year-old blonde beauty proved on this season’s ‘DWTS’ that there’s more to her than just vocal chops. She can dance, too. Pickler is now dreaming of showing off both talents while in the Broadway limelight.
“Since the show I’ve been wanting to do Broadway so bad just to throw together two of my passions — dance and music,” she revealed (quote via Country Weekly). “I want them to do like a Tammy Wynette Broadway musical! I know Dolly Parton has her Broadway shows and I think if anybody lived a country song, it’s Tammy.”
Pickler’s DWTS partner Derek Hough supports her ambitions, but can see her in another role. “[He] was like, ‘You need to be Roxie in ‘Chicago,’’” she recalls. “That would be amazing! I’ve watched that movie a million times. I know it by heart.”
Pickler doesn’t have any down time right now, though, so she’d have to carve out room in her schedule for a major undertaking like a Broadway musical. She has a few tour dates through March and is a busy bee promoting her newest album, ‘The Woman I Am.’
If you want to catch Pickler while she’s on the road, she has a few concerts coming early this year. A full list of tour dates are on her website.
