Kellie Pickler answered YOUR question!

You ever see someone famous on TV, and they seem very nice and all; but then you meet or speak with them, and they're nothing like that?

Well, Kellie Pickler was truly friendly and warm when I spoke to her Friday afternoon, exactly the way she was while appearing on the fifth season of "American Idol" as a finalist. I could tell she was genuinely grateful and appreciative of the life she's been afforded since hitting it big.

Kellie graciously spoke to me about life on the road, her post-"Idol" fame and the upcoming Hudson Valley Country Fest.

I respected her privacy, though, and didn't ask any questions about her personal life, including her well documented childhood. I did, however, squeeze in a question posed to Kellie by one of her fans. So here is his question, followed by Kellie's answer...

Robb from Poughkeepsie, NY: How has becoming a huge country star changed your life?
Kellie Pickler: I live in Nashville now — I’m originally from North Carolina — so I’ve relocated to Music City. I’ve sort of started my life over. There was really nothing to go back home for. There’s been a lot of filtering of the people in my life. I’ve just now found where I belong I belong. I’m finally happy now. I was so miserable before. I’m around good people and I have a good company and a good team around me.

So there you go, Kellie fans! Robb asked. Kellie answered. Thanks again to everyone who e-mailed me and submitted a question for Kellie.

Be sure to check out the Poughkeepsie Journal in September for the full story on Kellie and her appearance in Fishkill!
