In June 2008, she joined close friend Carrie Underwood, a long-time vegetarian, in giving up eating meat. Pickler says she first decided to go vegetarian for health reasons, but a TV ad that vegetarian Pamela Anderson did for animal rights group PETA piqued her curiosity. "One night I couldn't sleep and I was up and just Googling random stuff and I'm like, 'Hmmm, PETA.' I saw all the videos and I just thought it was horrible. It's animal cruelty. A lot of it has to do with knowing what happens to the animals and it really bothered me and so I will not eat meat." Pickler has stated that she is a fan of NASCAR.

List of Kellie Pickler's performances on American Idol [show] Semifinals February 21, 2006 – "How Far", Martina McBride The judges agreed that her vocal performance wasn't the best, but cited her personality as a primary reason she would go far. February 28, 2006 – "Something to Talk About", Bonnie Raitt The judges were complimentary and felt it was an improvement over the previous week. March 7, 2006 – "I'm the Only One", Melissa Etheridge The judges were complimentary. Judge Simon Cowell called her a "naughty little minx," or sex kitten ("like a nice, bad girl.") Pickler misunderstood the comment as him calling her a mink. Simon also said she was "interesting" and stated, "I kind of prefer you to last year's winner actually." Finals March 14, 2006 – "Blame It on the Sun" by Stevie Wonder Pickler received poor reviews from judges. Cowell said it was boring and did not like how she looked. He said it looked like Dolly Parton. March 21, 2006 – "Walkin' After Midnight" by Patsy Cline The judges enjoyed her performance and said it was her comeback performance from the week before. March 28, 2006 – "Suds in the Bucket" by Sara Evans The judges were not so impressed with her song choice. Randy said "this song wasn't exciting enough for your voice… I think maybe you're better than that, it just didn't show enough for me for you. I didn't get the song choice, I don't know." Paula said "you're way better than that song choice. It didn't show your range, it didn't show your personality, you're so much better than that." Cowell said she chose a "gimmicky, rodeo, lassoing, whatever novelty song." However the song by Sara Evans was a top hit on the country charts and Simon didn't seem to be familiar with it or like country music in general. April 4, 2006 – "Fancy" by Bobbie Gentry and later remade by Reba McEntire The judges thought she did very well in her home genre and was the best of the night. April 11, 2006 – "Bohemian Rhapsody" by Queen The judges thought she was brave choosing that song and did a good job. Cowell said that "on paper" it would seem like a disaster for her to do that song, but he thought she pulled it off and gave a good performance. April 18, 2006 – "Bewitched, Bothered, and Bewildered" by Ella Fitzgerald The judges thought that it wasn't the best of the night and that she did well in the beginning but by the middle it got pitchy and ahead of the music. Pickler exclaimed "I butchered it!". Seacrest told her that she "nailed it" at rehearsal. Judge Paula Abdul liked her shoes and judge Randy Jackson said her dress was "awesome". April 25, 2006 – "Unchained Melody" by Al Hibbler, Les Baxter, The Righteous Brothers, and many other artists (Eliminated) Jackson said there were pitch problems but liked the falsetto. Abdul said that she adores Pickler and said that America has fallen in love with her, although she failed to raise the bar as far as her singing was concerned. Cowell thought that it was a never-ending song that was bland, monotonous and said she was like a robot with no heart during the performance. Pickler was in the bottom two with fellow contestant Paris Bennett and was eliminated. Other March 1, 2007 & April 8, 2009 - Special guest on American Idol.
