Kellie Pickler has a confession: She hasn't really had the chance to put the 'sin' in Sin City.
"I've never been able to go to Vegas and be a tourist," she tells PEOPLE. "Every time I go, I never get to go and play. I hope to get to do that soon – just go and watch a show."
Hopefully that'll be the case this weekend, when the songstress attends the ACM Awards with husband Kyle Jacobs, who's nominated for single record of the year for producing Lee Brice's "I Drive Your Truck." "I'm a huge fan of the song," she shares. "I remember Kyle playing it for me when he first found that song for Lee, and I was like, 'This is going to be a big song.' So I'll definitely be in his corner [on Sunday]."
