Kellie Pickler to appear on '90210' tonight

Albemarle native Kellie Pickler will make her acting debut Tuesday night on '90210' on the CW Network.

“Well my zip code growing up was a long way from 90210 so it will definitely be acting,” joked Pickler about the role on her web site.

Pickler plays Sally, the country-singing cousin of local cowboy Austin (Justin Deeley), according to her web site. Pickler will also perform her new single “Tough”. The shows airs at 8 p.m.

If you want to see Pickler in person she will be performing at the North Carolina State Fair this year. She will close out the State Fair on Sunday, October 23 in Dorton Arena.
