She is just a small town girl...

The Mr and I snuck off to the Yamhill County Fair and Rodeo in McMinnville, Oregon last night just to see Kellie Pickler in person and ofcourse, hear her sing. It was a fun time, Except we had to stand the whole time and I'm boy am I paying for it today. I'm having a real problem with the standing upright for long periods of time, I think I've got a nerve pinching.
Kellie was in her usual form a whole lot of country with a sweet touch of witty and by her own admission a tad bit of A.D.D., She was loving Oregon from what I could tell and expressed her appreciation repeatedly for so many fans coming out to see her. She seemed really genuine, I like that about her.
I looked around a bit and there was quite a few there to see her. She mentioned winning the 3 awards through CMA, and also told us this was a vote through fans only to win them, Yay for her.
Kellie in the beginning brought out her new puppy dog, and Marianne your gonna love this, it was a little bitty Chihuahua. Black and white, spotted like a cow so she name it

Moo Moo
I went to her Myspace to get the picture of it, I'm sure she took it herself because she had only had the pup a couple days and she got it here in Oregon somewhere.

These are pictures from the concert and if you didn't have a camera like mine I'm sure you'd have only gotten a blur. The lighting was terrible for pictures, These were my best shots of many let me tell you. I learned something about my camera through my own trial and error last night. I figured out all by myself how to take these kinds of pictures in the dark with no tripod. Anybody with camera experience knows that's a real task. So Enjoy and I'm proud to bring them to you.

Even though I was a Hicks Chick in the Season 5 of American Idol,...I've yet to see him, I wish her well, She is gifted and has a new album coming out in September. We heard a few preview songs from the album and "Throwing rocks instead of rice" was a catchy sorta funny song about a girl crashing her ex-boyfriends wedding. Listen for it.

5 Left A Love Note :):

Ah yes, Kellie Pickler. This is the girl who Shark wondered if she ate lead base paint chips during her infancy.

Well she has great taste in dogs!!

I love little MooMoo.

I have no idea who this person is but I'm happy you enjoyed the concert. Good job on the pictures.

I've lost interest in American Idol after the 4th season, so I guess that explains why I don't know her, but Moo Moo is a great name for a black and white pooch!

Oh, I really like Kellie Pickler. I happened to click on your site and that caught my attention. I enjoyed this post a lot, and of course the little doggie....I am a dog person.
Thanks for a great post...I will stop in again.

Oh you lucky lucky dog!

(You too for getting to see Kelly!)

I never went for the soul patrol.

Too much energy out the sides...
