Kellie Pickler is not afraid to show off her bikini body. The former "American Idol" contestant is off on a girl's holiday at the beach, and she shared a photo of herself in a tiny bikini that is stirring up some buzz for herself this week. The Spread It shared the photo and more about her trip on July 17.
Pickler has come a long way from her time on the reality competition series. She has released several albums, and she is still out promoting her 2013 release, "The Woman I Am." She is still touring for the album, but she did take a break to enjoy some fun in the sun with her female friends. She shared several photos of herself on Instagram over the weekend, and it is safe to say that Kellie is looking great. She looks happy too in these new photos.
There really is not anything for Kellie to be sad about now though. The singer turned 28 last month, and she spent the day with her husband, according to E! Online. The singer even shared a cute photo of her and the hubby on her Instagram. She is married to Kyle Jacobs, and the pair celebrated their birthdays together at the end of last month. Pickler's touring schedule had recently kept the couple apart, but that is how it is when you are in the music business. She said the following about her husband in a recent interview:
"My husband Kyle changed my life. He is my sanctuary and my safe place to come to. We write together and we work together some and he brings out the best in me … He makes me a better person and a better artist."
Picker's career began when she appeared on "American Idol" season five. It has been a long time since her time on that reality show stage, but she has appeared on television again in recent years. She had a small guest-starring role on "90210" before that show ended its run last year. Pickler also appeared as herself on "Nashville" on ABC. That series is returning to the network for season three in the fall.
She is taking on a new role as well. Picker's voice talents are featured in the next Veggie Tales movie. Pickler voiced a yam for the film titled "Beauty and the Beet." She is not only voicing the character for the animated feature, but she recorded several songs for the soundtrack of the film, according to The Boot. Her character, named Mirabelle, is a singer in a family band.
As for the new bikini photos featuring Pickler, this is not the first time the singer has shown off her hot body. She shared another set of bikini photos in Sept. 2013. Pickler was able to get into such great shape when she appeared on "Dancing with the Stars" during season 16. Derek Hough was her partner for her turn on the dance floor. The reality series is preparing for season 19 currently.
Music is still Pickler's first love though. Pickler revealed that her country music inspirations include Tammy Wynette, Dolly Parton, and Loretta Lynn in an interview last month. Fans should expect to hear more of her music in the years to come.
