Kellie Pickler says 'American Idol' made her dreams come true

Country music star discusses new reality show


"American Idol" recently announced that this upcoming season will be its last and one of its most famous contestants - Kellie Pickler - is eternally grateful to the show.

"I was so blessed to be a part of the show," she told FOX & Friends. "It changed my life. It takes people that never in a million years have that opportunity. It makes your dreams become a reality. It did mine."

And if the producers come calling to have her back for a swan song the 28-year-old country star said she would love to return to the stage. 

For now fans can catch her on the upcoming CMT reality show "I Love Kellie Pickler" co-starring her husband, songwriter Kyle Jacobs. Pickler says the show will be fun and that she wants to "bring people joy."
