Country singer and "Dancing With the Stars" winner Kellie Pickler wants to perform on Broadway, according to CountryWeekly.com.

Pickler, who, partnered with dance coach Derek Hough, won the Mirror Ball Trophy on "Dancing with the Stars," said in an interview with Country Weekly, "Since the show I've been wanting to do Broadway so bad just to throw together two of my passions — dance and music. I want them to do like a Tammy Wynette Broadway musical! I know Dolly Parton has her Broadway shows and I think if anybody lived a country song, it's Tammy."

Pickler also said she would like to perform in another Broadway musical. 

"Derek [Hough} was like, 'You need to be Roxie in Chicago,'" she said to Country Weekly. "That would be amazing! I've watched that move a million times. I know it by heart."

Pickler, who reached the top 12 on "American Idol" in 2005 has released the albums "Small Town Girl," "Kellie Pickler," "100 Proof" and "The Woman I Am."
