Country singer and reality star Kellie Pickler could be standing by her man on the Great White Way soon! The American Idol finalist and Dancing with the Stars champion told Country Weekly that she’d be interested in combining her love of singing and dancing for the Broadway stage in a Tammy Wynette musical.
“Since the show I’ve been wanting to do Broadway so bad just to throw together two of my passions – dance and music. I want them to do like a Tammy Wynette Broadway musical! I know Dolly Parton has her Broadway shows and I think if anybody lived a country song, it’s Tammy.”
Pickler is a big fan of Wynette, even recording a track entitled, “Where’s Tammy Wynette” for her third-studio album, 100 Proof. While no biographical-musical has been announced (producers are you listening?), Pickler says she’d also be game to be the name on everyone’s lips as Roxie Hart in the Broadway production of Chicago. “That would be amazing! I’ve watched that movie a million times. I know it by heart.” Hacha!
