Former “American Idol” contender Kellie Pickler is off the market.

“I’ve met someone now that I’m crazy about and he’s crazy about me, and I couldn’t imagine being with anyone else,” Kellie told radio show “GAC Nights: Live From Nashville.”

The buxom Southern blonde said that while she is head over heels for her guy, she isn’t ready yet to walk down the aisle.

“There’s a sense of reality where you have to be a realist and think, this is something that you’re gonna make a vow to spend the rest of your life with this person and your priorities are gonna change,” she told the show. “Right now, I’m in the point of my life where I want my career to be No. 1.”

And Kellie, who is expected to tour later this year with teenage country cutie Taylor Swift, said she feels too young for marriage.

“I’m not ready — I’m 22, I just started out — I’m not ready to put my husband first,” she said. “[I’ll wait until] I’m to a point into my career where I can say, ‘This can come in second and I’m ready to have a family.’”
