Kellie Pickler performed a cover of “Don’t Close Your Eyes” and her country hit ” Red High Heels” at the Grand Ole Opry tonight.
After her set, Bill Anderson did a short interview with her about her new album. He said he’s been hearing great things about some of the stuff she’s recording. Kellie believes it’s her best work yet.
Anderson said he heard she was going more country with the album. Kellie said she’s really been soaking up the Waylon/Eddy Arnold/Tammy/Hank Cochrane/Dolly records that her grandparents love and was going to go as far back to traditional country as “they’d let” her. (“They” probably meaning the label.)
So, what do you think about Kellie going old-school country? I think it suits her!
