Kellie Pickler Wants A Tammy Wynette Broadway Musical

(Radio.com) When Kellie Pickler won Dancing with the Stars last year, fans found out that the North Carolina singer was not only a top-notch vocalist but a skilled dancer as well. So to hear that she's now interested in possibly taking her talent to Broadway actually makes sense.

Pickler told Country Weekly that ever since her appearance on Dancing with the Stars, she's "been wanting to do Broadway so bad," which would allow her to "throw together two of my passions dance and music." And not just any Broadway production, she has a clear idea in mind for what she thinks would make for an epic production: the life and music of the late Tammy Wynette.

"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."

That's actually a pretty solid idea. Wynette's life story is a colorful one, as she grew from the only child of a struggling Mississippi farmer's family into a full-blown country music legend. She recorded multiple landmark singles and, ultimately, earned a place in the Country Music Hall of Fame. Her signature song "Stand By Your Man" is among the best-known country singles of all time. more on this story
