She became famous on the fifth season of American Idol, as a contestant. That was back in 2006. She finished in sixth place, but that hasn’t stopped her. She has a few hits since then and today, June 28 is her birthday. Kellie Pickler was born in Albemarle, North Carolina.

She was raised by her grandparents and considers her grandfather as her major influence. When she graduated from her high school, North Stanly High School in New London, North Carolina, she was a beauty queen and a cheerleader. She also worked as a waitress at a Sonic Drive-in, but now instead of delivering food orders, she’s delivering some great songs.

Here's one that seems to be a ladies' choice - "Red High Heels."
