Kellie Pickler’s ‘Dancing With the Stars’ Goods Invited to Country Music Hall of Fame
If you’ve been awestruck by the gorgeous costumes on ABC’s hit show ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ now is your chance to get up close and personal with recent winner Kellie Pickler‘s dancing attire. She graciously lent the Country Music Hall of Fame her finale costume and mirror ball trophy just in time for summer tourists.
Beginning Wednesday (July 3), Nashville’s iconic museum will recognize Pickler’s win with a special exhibit on the second floor of the site. If you think back to the exciting finale, the ‘Someone Somewhere Tonight’ singer-turned-dancer-extraordinaire wore a flirty two-piece chiffon ensemble studded with rhinestones, and it helped her land a perfect score and the Season 16 championship. The CMHoF will also house the singer’s coveted mirror ball trophy.
For the show, Pickler was paired with professional dancer and choreographer Derek Hough, whose sister Julianne Hough is also a country music entertainer and dancer. Pickler is certainly not a stranger to televised competitions, as she was a finalist on ‘American Idol’ in 2006.
As the excitement from ‘DWTS’ begins to dissipate, the songstress is focusing on her music with a new album, due this fall. However, it seems that she’s not leaving her dancing shoes behind forever, as her dancing partner Hough is rumored to be starring in her new music video.
While Pickler’s presence at the Country Music Hall of Fame is to be expected due to her successful career, she likely never guessed a dancing costume would land her in the home of America’s music!
