She sings, she dances and she co-hosts like a pro: Kellie Pickler is well on her way to doing it all!

Yesterday (June 18), Kellie sat in the hot seat on ABC’s The View, filling in for Barbara Walters and Joy Behar. The often hilarious, but also introspective, country singer contributed her thoughts on “hot topics” like nude bridesmaid boudoir photos and her appearance on Dancing With the Stars. She also updated the audience on the health of her friend Summer, who is being treated for breast cancer and is doing very well. Kellie also performed her beautiful new single, “Someone Somewhere Tonight.”

Singing, dancing, hosting . . . what’s left for Kellie to conquer? “I’m always going to be a country music singer, first,” she tells Country Weekly. “But I’d love to follow in Reba McEntire’s footsteps and pursue Broadway, TV and film.”

You’re well on your way, sister!
