Remember When Kellie Pickler Was Miss Stanly County?

Subscribe to Taste of Country on

In 2004, Contestant No. 6 won the Miss Stanly County, N.C. pageant and moved on to compete for Miss North Carolina. Recent video shows Kellie Pickler competing in the swimsuit competition, evening dress and talent portions as well as participating in a brief Q&A in front of an adoring audience. 

Unfortunately, Pickler’s beauty pageant days ended with only the county crown, but the experience definitely prepared her for the competition on ‘American Idol.’ One could argue her version of Martina McBride‘s ‘Broken Wing’ sealed the win for her, but a platform that emphasized high moral character certainly helped. Watch Pickler accept the crown here after you finish with her competition video.
