Kellie Pickler is a native of Albemarle, N.C. She competed on American Idol in 2006 and was suddenly nationally known as the blonde roller-skating waitress from the local Sonic. Although she did not win, Pickler did sign a major label record deal with BNA Records.
In September 2007, Kellie released a version of the christmas song “Santa Baby” for a Christmas country compilation. It reached No.6 on iTunes Holiday Songs.
On October 15, at the ASCAP Awards in Nashville, Kellie received a songwriter award for “Red High Heels”.
At the CMA Awards on November 7, 2007, while Kelly performed her second single I Wonder, she broke down and started crying, receiving a standing ovation from the audience. The applause lasted for one minute and many believed it to have been the best performance of the night.
