Kellie Pickler, who will be performing in Tooele in July, announced today on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" that she and her dance partner, native Utahn Derek Hough, will dance to a very special song on Monday night's "Dancing With The Stars."
In honor of the show's theme of the week, "Most Memorable Year," Pickler chose to dance to one from 2011 the year she married her husband Kyle Jacobs. Pickler and Hough will dance the rumba to "Say I Do," a romantic ballad written by Jacobs for Pickler shortly before their wedding day. To top it off, Jacobs will perform the song in person on the show Monday night with the help of the "Dancing With The Stars" house band. "It's going to be an 100 percent emotional moment, and I'm just hoping I can keep it together," Jacobs sain in a press release. "Kellie's doing so well on the show, and she's having so much fun. The fact that she's dancing to this song, our song, means so very much to both of us." When asked how Jacobs feels about his wife dancing with Hough each week, Pickler sweetly told Ellen, "My husband knows he's always going to get the last dance."
