Kellie Pickler returned to the Grand Ole Opry last night for the first time since her win on Dancing With The Stars, performing “Someone Somewhere Tonight” live. She was surprised with a welcome home party and lots of goodies after she performed!
Here is Kellie performing her new single “Someone Somewhere Tonight” last night during the Opry’s 2nd show of the night:
Now watch one of the surprises greeting Kellie after she opened her set by singing “Stop Cheatin’ On Me” from her critically acclaimed album 100 Proof (hint: she got more than a few of these during her run to the Dancing With The Stars championship!):

Backstage, the Opry threw Dancing With the Stars winner Pickler a lavish welcome-home party that included a cake shaped like a mirrorball and #10 cupcakes. The Opry gave her a commemorative print celebrating her DWTS win, and the Nashville Convention and Visitors Bureau presented her with a key to the city of Nashville — a piano key, that is.
According to Music Row mag the backstage celebrations include Kellie’s DWTS partner Derek Hough, Kellie’s manager Larry Fitzgerald, and representatives from the Opry, the Nashville Convention and Visitors Corporation, and her label Black River Entertainment. Check out a couple of backstage pictures of Kellie and some of her commemorative gifts:
