Kellie Pickler wowed TV viewers with her fancy footwork on ABC's Dancing with the Stars earlier this year -- she even won the coveted mirrorball trophy.  So you might expect Kellie's country concerts to include some choreography, but she tells ABC News Radio those elaborate dances don't fit her down-home country hits.   

Kellie says, "No, I mean, we're ballroom dancing, so I'm not gonna break out the Argentine tango in the middle of 'I Wonder' or 'Red High Heels.' It just doesn't go together. It doesn't make sense."

Instead, Kellie's focused on performing music from her new album, The Woman I Am .  However, she isn't saying never when it comes to using her dancing skills in concert. 

"I wanted to get out there and sing my song," Kellie says, "Maybe down the road, if I'm able to build a bigger production and want to, then maybe I would venture into that."

As for her new album, Kellie describes it as "Kellie Country," saying, "[It] may be the most 'me' album that I've created yet."

Look for Kellie to promote The Woman I Am with performances on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and CBS's Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson Wednesday. She's also slated to perform on ABC's The View Tuesday, November 26.
