Kellie Pickler getting animated in her next gig

via CMT News
Kellie Pickler can sing like bird, dances like a ballroom champion (because she is one) and no doubt is going to be perfect in her next venture -- voicing a character in VeggieTales, the wildly-popular children's animated series.

Her character is a talking sweet potato (Really? Not a pickle?) named Mirabelle in the series' new direct-to-DVD feature, Beauty and the Beet. It's a fantastic opportunity for Pickler and should provide loads of fun and inspiration for her, too.

Who knows where this could lead? Although Pickler's voice will be her only presence in Beauty and the Beet, the camera clearly loves her. And she's even admitted having some curiosity about taking on a Broadway role after she and Derek Hough won the Dancing With the Stars competition in 2013.

The sky is the limit for a star of her sparkle. I just love her. Whatever she decides to do -- whether it's music, movies, television, red carpets or simply mingling with a room of fans -- she always does it well and with plenty of heart.

Beauty and the Beet will be released Oct. 14.
