Kellie Pickler to Appear at Eagle Mountain Casino
Country music star, Kellie Pickler, is an American country music artist and television personality. She gained fame as a contestant on the fifth season of the Fox reality show American Idol, eventually finishing in sixth place. This Country Music’s Sweetheart will grace the stage at Eagle Mountain Casino on July 13, 2012 at 9 pm.
It starts with star quality, that undefinable but clearly identifiable trait she possesses in abundance. She combines beauty, wit, and humor in a way that has attracted fans from her first days in the national spotlight, and she has proven over and over that there is a great deal of substance under the blond-hair and light-hearted exterior.
Kellie established herself quickly as both a singer and songwriter to be reckoned with, co-writing her first hit, “Red High Heels,” her first gold single. Her debut album, Small Town Girl, produced two follow-up hits – the poignant “I Wonder,” which she also co-wrote, and the light hearted “Things That Never Cross A Man’s Mind.” Together, they propelled the release to near-platinum status.
Her second album, Kellie Pickler, for which she co-wrote half the songs, spawned the uplifting “Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful” and “Best Days of Your Life.” The latter, co-written by Kellie with Taylor Swift, quickly became the biggest hit of her career, rising to the Top Ten and earning gold in digital sales. In fact, the song speaks volumes about Kellie’s life and how close friendships have helped her with the process of turning the ups and downs of her life into compelling art.
“I write what my soul tells me to write,” she says. “I realized the key to writing is just being true and writing what is real. It’s why country music has such an impact. It’s music people relate to because it’s about telling true stories.” She treats her singing the same way.
“I can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t like to sing. It’s a way of expressing who I am, and it’s therapeutic for me. It’s how I express what I’m going through. People release their emotions, their happiness or sadness, in different ways – dancing, painting, running. Mine is singing. That and writing are healing for me.”
“Eagle Mountain Casino is excited to present this very talented country music star,” said Jim Valencia, Public Relations Coordinator for Eagle Mountain Casino. “Her albums and singles have climbed the Billboard Music Charts and she was nominated for “Top New Female Vocalist” at the 42nd Academy of country Music Award.”
