Kellie Pickler recently performed a cozy concert at the Sound Kitchen in Nashville for RAM Country Live on Yahoo! Music, a series which is committed to creating intimate and exclusive concert experiences with the biggest artists in country music.

Taste of Country is pleased to share this exclusive photo from the gig of the bubbly blonde singer, as well as her performance of her new song ‘Where’s Tammy Wynette?’ Before launching into the song, the always perky Pickler reveals that one of the reasons she fell in love with the country genre is because of Wynette. It makes the song (and this performance) feel that much more personal.

In a chat with Yahoo!, Pickler revealed that her country roots are as strong as ever and that she wanted to embrace them fully when she recorded ’100 Proof,’ her latest LP. “I wanted to make a traditional sounding country record and I did not produce but I did, you know, get a little bossy,” she said about asserting herself during the process. Sometimes, a country gal has to put her cowboy boot-wearing foot down.

The singer also shared her experiences with RAM Trucks, which are a bit inherently country. She said, “I’m so excited to have been able to partner up with RAM Trucks. We have this amazing show that were gonna be putting on – The RAM Jam in December. I was given a truck to drive for the year and we’re auctioning of the truck and giving the proceeds to a charity of my choice and I chose Wounded Warriors Project.”
