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!):

Brian Mansfield of USA Today also reports:

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:

    I wonder if Kree is bummed she didn’t win and now they won’t get those tattoos!

    I’m going to download that song, it’s beautiful, and she sang the crap out of it. Go Kellie….I wish I had one of those DWTS paddles, lol. So glad she had that moment.

    Kellie keeps getting better with time and the more she has creative control.
    I think she’s great.
    I was hoping that Kellie would be on more talk shows, etc. after winning DWTS. I only saw her on a couple. So I am especially happy that the Opry did something for her.

    Good for her. She has always been a firecracker. She deserves all the success in life that comes her way.
