Kellie Pickler Gets a Little Corny

Kellie is this year’s pick for the Shelby Corn Maze.

It may sound a little corny, but Kellie Pickler is the newest face of the Shelby Corn Maze in Shelby, N.C.

And if you think it’s because she is a North Carolina girl, guess again! The Albermarle native got the honor after winning the mirrorball trophy on the previous season of Dancing With the Stars. The maze’s operator, Alice Pyron, said she and her husband decided while watching the show that if she won, she’d be their 2013 face.

The maze occupies eight acres of corn and is set up in two phases. And it must be pretty challenging! Alice took local news station WBTV through the stalks and got lost herself.

Jason Aldean has also been immortalized in the Shelby Corn Maze and, last year, Alan Jackson’s image was captured in the Gull Meadows Farm maze in Richland, Mich. And in 1994, the Iowa State Fair displayed a sculpture of Garth Brooks in butter.
