First, she was the Dancing with the Stars champion. Now she’s playing a sweet potato. This fall, Kellie Pickler makes her debut as a yam named Mirabelle in a forthcoming feature-film length installment of the popular animated children's series VeggieTales , starring alongside Bob the Tomato and Larry the Cucumber.

The former American Idol contestant lends her voice as the lead singer of a family band of sweet potatoes in the winter-themed Beauty and the Beet . Kellie also performs seven original songs in the film which will be available October 14 both on DVD and via iTunes. The songs also will be available separately on a holiday album also due October 14, and including a special rendition of “Deck the Halls.”
