The rumor mill had it right! The country world will be well represented this year on Dancing with the Stars, as both Kellie Pickler and Wynonna Judd were announced as part of the new cast of celebrities.
The cast of the new season was revealed Tuesday on Good Morning America.
“This is something I said I would never do,” Wynonna tells ABC. “I’m trying to get back to my original weight of eight pounds and six ounces…. It’s the year of doing things you’re scared of!”
Kellie will be the first former American Idol wannabe to shake her moneymaker on the show.
Kellie and Wynonna will compete against Olympic gold medalist Aly Raisman, comedians Andy Dick and D.L. Hughley, figure skating legend Dorothy Hamill, actor Ingo Rademacher, Baltimore Ravens star Jacoby Jones, reality TV star Lisa Vanderpump, boxing champion Victor Ortiz and Disney star Zendaya Coleman.
Season 16 of Dancing With the Stars premieres March 18th on ABC.
