Life has definitely changed for Kellie Pickler. The former "American Idol" contestant says it wasn't easy to leave her friends in her tiny hometown of Albemarle, NC and move to Nashville, Tennessee.
But the beauty school drop out says she's enjoying theexperience.
Pickler has released an album and is touring with Brad Paisley.
She was nominated for a new female vocalist award at the Academy of Country Music Awards.
The 20-year-old is even eating new food, including raw fish.
Picker told a Charlotte television station she's --not-- worried about rumors of plastic surgery. She says it's only important to be happy with your look.
Pickler is single but believes she'll settle down in a relationship if it's meant to be. Otherwise, she'll settle down with a bunch of cats.
