Kellie Pickler is getting ready to take on Hollywood one veggie at a time.
Kellie will be playing a sweet potato in a new VeggieTales movie called Beauty and the Beet, which premieres October 14.
Beauty and the Beet is an all-new take on the classic fairy tale and Pickler stars as Mirabelle, the sweet-potato lead singer of a family band that meets with unexpected trouble when an angry innkeeper makes them feel unwelcome. As she befriends the Beet and matches his harshness with loving acts, Mirabelle proves that compassion and kindness reap their own rewards. It features seven original songs performed by Pickler, which will be collected on a companion CD that features a special rendition of “Deck the Halls” also sung by Pickler. The holiday album will be released to coincide with the DVD and will be available for download via iTunes.
Fans can pre-order Beauty and the Beet from Walmart now.
