The year was 2007. And while Kellie Pickler was just a curious American Idol finalist from North Carolina with a country accent, her talent at the CMA Awards blew everyone away!
She wrote this personal song about her mother. The pain and emotion apparent in this beautiful performance was so incredible that people took notice, and she went on have smash hits, such as “Tough” and “Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful.”
You have to see this extraordinary performance:
And she is still showing her talents, while giving back to her country. She has been busy touring the world performing for our troops through the USO.
Great job, Kellie!
