Listen to Kellie Pickler on iHeartRadio

Kellie Pickler has a new album on the way.  The country star tells she's taking control of the project, describing it as "Kellie country, for sure." Pickler doesn't say just when the album will be released, but adds that she's currently working on the disc while she's on "Dancing With the Stars." 

Kellie is emerging as one of this season's top competitors on the ABC reality show. 

She also has something special coming up this week.  She revealed on Friday's "Ellen DeGeneres Show" that she and partner Derek Hough will be dancing the rumba to "Say I Do," an original song her husband, Kyle Jacobs, wrote for their wedding. 

Kyle will also be on hand to perform the song for Kellie and Derek's dance on Monday's "Dancing With the Stars," airing at 8:00 p.m. Eastern.
