In the long, storied up and down relationship I've had with Kellie Pickler, I've always been excited to talk to her or see her.  C'mon, can you blame me?  So, as I awaited her presence, with one last break left in my show and mere minutes before she took the stage to turn the Opry pink, can you here my excitement when she arrived?

Listen to the interview and then check out some other Kellie moments from the past.
