“A Little Bit Gypsy & A Lot Fabulous!”

– Larry Emdur, The Morning Show

Australian Music Fans have fallen in love with US Country superstar Kellie Pickler, who has been in Australia over the past week performing as a special guest on the Toby Keith National Arena Tour as well as performing at CMC Rocks The Hunter last Sunday.

Kellie Pickler has five Top 20 Billboard hits in the US to date, as well as being a three-time CMT Music Award winner, CMA & ACM Nominee, US Dancing With The Stars Winner and popular television personality.

Her latest album The Woman I Am, featuring the Australian Country #1 Single ‘Someone Somewhere Tonight’ and current local single ‘Little Bit Gypsy’  debuted at #1 on the iTunes Country Sales charts in Australia last November.

This week The Woman I Am returns to the iTunes Country Album Chart Top #10.  

Pickler will perform at Allphones Arena in Sydney tonight (March 18) and Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne tomorrow night (March 19) before returning to the US.

This morning she performed her latest single ‘Little Bit Gypsy’ live on Channel Seven’s The Morning Show. Click Here to see that performance plus her performance on Radio National Breakfast with Fran Kelly.

Pickler will co-host the CMC Rocks the Hunter TV Special, airing next month and the show will also feature performances from her incredible live set at the festival.
