Kellie Pickler and Kree Harrison Make Pact to Get Matching Tattoos
“American Idol” finalist Kree Harrison has caught the attention of a few Country stars. Kacey Musgraves is rallying behind her and “Idol” judge Keith Urban says he thinks she’s “definitely a contender” to win. They’re not the only ones on ‘Team Kree.” Kellie Pickler is too.
“She’s one of my good friends,” Harrison tells E! Online. “She’s a doll. I adore her. She’s literally the sweetest woman. She’s inspiring in so many ways.” The pair met in Nashville a couple of years ago through a mutual friend.
Pickler is also the perfect person to give Harrison advice about how to handle the instant fame that ‘Idol’ brings. ”More so than anything, [she said], ‘Stay true to who you are,’” Harrison reveals. “I’ve gotten that a lot because I am a humble person, and that’s not going to change. It won’t, just because I’m surrounded by such amazing people in my life that wouldn’t let me.”
The two even spend their downtime together. ”She’s come and met everyone [at Idol], too,” Harrison says. And it seems Pickler has grown particularly fond of another unaffected country singer from the South. “She loves Janelle [Arthur]. They remind me a lot of each other. They’re both really witty.”
While Harrison is sitting as a favorite on the hit FOX show, Pickler is also dancing her way to winning the mirror ball trophy on ABC’s “Dancing with the Stars.” And the two are voting for each other as well! “We’ve decided that if we win, which I know she’s going to win ‘Dancing With the Stars,’ we’re going to go get matching tattoos!”
Tune in to FOX tonight at 8 p.m. EST to see if Harrison will be moving on to next week. In addition to the results, Carrie Underwood will take the Idol stage to perform her new single “See You Again,” and Casey James will also perform his new single “The Good Life.”
