Shelby Corn Maze looks like Kellie Pickler

SHELBY, NC (WBTV) - Alice Pyron and her husband started operating corn mazes in the fall 12 years ago, as a way to make a little extra money for their chicken farming business.

Each year, more than 7,000 people make their way in and out of the 8 acres of twists and turns cut into a corn field.

But this year, Alice thought of a new design. "We were watching dancing with the stars, and said if she makes it, we're going to put her in the maze," Alice said of the idea to use a likeness of country music star Kellie Pickler.

A company that designs and builds corn mazes came in and with a top-secret process, put the image of Pickler to corn.

From the air, it looks beautiful and even easy to navigate.

But we found, on the ground things are a little different. Check out the video to see our efforts to make our way in and out in one piece.
