Kellie Pickler says she hopes to have her fourth album out by the fall. While the new collection will include some originals, she tells Rolling Stone she’s tapped Nashville’s songwriting community for material. She says, “There are so many songwriters, and I think there a millions of songs in Nashville that are classic hits that are just sitting on a shelf collecting dust and people need to hear them. I love digging way back into old catalogs and whatnot, and finding those hidden gems.”
Kellie has been splitting time between the recording studio and the dance studio while competing on ABC’s Dancing With the Stars.
Kellie Pickler says she teases her husband Kyle Jacobs about getting ripped on Dancing With the Stars...
“I’m excited about getting ripped. I keep joking with him saying I’m going to after the shows I’m going to start entering these muscle women contests and do the women’s weightlifting competitions. He’s like, ‘Awe, baby I don’t want you to be able to pick me up.’ I’m going to be doing arm curls with my husband.”
Kellie and dance partner Derek Hough are Dancing With the Stars semifinalists. A new winner will be crowned May 21st.
