BNA Records artist Kellie Pickler will get summer started by hosting Westwood One’s America’s Opry Weekend Summer Kick-Off Special on Memorial Day weekend. Pickler will spin tunes about sunshine and summertime, several of them live cuts from the Opry stage.
Among the songs listeners will hear are her own “Best Days of Your Life,” Brad Paisley’s “Water”; “American Honey” from Lady Antebellum; “Til Summer Comes Around” by Keith Urban and Kenny Chesney’s “When the Sun Goes Down.”
