What are we grateful for this year? Kellie Pickler's stunning voice!

Standing atop the NHL float in a gorgeous Badgley Mischka gown at Macy's 87th Annual Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, Pickler belted out her hit single "Little Bit Gypsy" off her most recent album. It's been a busy week for Pickler as she also performed the song on Dancing With the Stars' finale on Monday.

The country cutie's fourth album The Woman I Am was released earlier this month and quickly reached the fourth spot on Billboard's Top Country Albums Chart.

The American Idol alum recently chatted with E! News about her new album, which she worked on with a  very special person in her life. "My husband [Kyle Jacobs] and I co-wrote some of the songs on the record, which was really neat to be able to collaborate together," she said.

After her performance at the big event in New York City, the Dancing With the Stars champion posted a sweet message for her fans on her Twitter.

"Happy Thanksgiving!" she wrote. "I'm blessed to have your unconditional love, support, & friendship!! Much love to you all! Xo."

And when she wasn't singing, Pickler was busy making new friends at the parade. She posted a photo of herself with workout guru Richard Simmons, with the cute caption, "My new partner in crime." 

And Simmons was equally as smitten, writing, "Met and fell in love with Kellie Pickler today."

Other special guests at the big event included Ariana Grande, Jimmy Fallon, Austin Mahone, Pete Wentz, Cher Lloyd and more.

Teen sensation Mahone performed his hit single "Banga Banga" and later tweeted, "That was so much fun!!! My face is frozen tho."
