The Beauty of Song, Part Three: Kellie Pickler

Kellie Pickler is another happy discovery from a TV talent show.

The North Carolina-born country singer was a contestant on the 2006 edition of "American Idol," but she only placed sixth.  That, however, was enough to get the attention of a record label, which signed her later that year.

Her single "Red High Heels" was a breakthrough moment for Ms. Pickler, and it led to other country hits such as "Things That Never Cross a Man's Mind" and "Didn't You Know How Much I Loved You."  Her four albums to date - Small Town Girl, Kellie Pickler, 100 Proof, and The Woman I Am - have all made the top five of the Billboard country album chart.
