Country singer Kellie Pickler blazed her way to fame on the 2006 season of American Idol, where she won judges and voters over with her powerful voice, sweet country drawl, and down-to-earth attitude. At her 2013 live performances, Kellie continued to prove herself an impressive performer, treating ticket buyers to her strong vocals and notable stage presence as she belted out old favorites and new songs from her 2013 album The Woman I Am. Propelled by popular singles "Someone Somewhere Tonight" and "Little Bit Gypsy," The Woman I Am landed No. 1 on the Independent Albums chart and marked her fourth consecutive Top 5 release on the Top Country Albums chart.
Kellie is no stranger to talent competitions — before Idol, she participated in local singing contests and beauty pageants, including the Miss North Carolina competition. Although her primary focus has always been music, she has also proven herself a talented dancer, winning the 16th season of Dancing with the Stars in 2013. After appearing on the American Idols LIVE! Tour 2006, Kellie released her debut album Small Town Girl, which featured the hit songs "Red High Heels" and "I Wonder." Her self-titled follow-up was released in 2008, reaching No. 9 on the Billboard 200 and earning her several more hits including "Don't You Know You're Beautiful" and "Makin' Me Fall in Love Again." With the release of The Woman I Am in 2013, Kellie delivered another strong batch of songs, garnering universal acclaim and building anticipation for her 2014 live concert dates.
