Country music’s own Kellie Pickler is the leading lady on the cover of Maxim magazine’s special military tribute issue, “Maxim Salutes The Military.” The issue, which hits newsstands on Tuesday, July 31st, features Kellie on the cover and in the centerfold in a 1950′s-style with a modern flare, and an in-depth personal interview on why she loves performing for the troops overseas with her USO Tours. The story, and full photo spread, is live on Maxim.com right now.
In the cover story, Kellie remembers the sacrifices made for her country’s freedom.
“I come from a military family. My grandfather is a retired Marine, and I’ve always had a great deal of respect for anyone who serves our country. It really does take someone special to sacrifice everything. I don’t mean just their lives, either. There are men who are sacrificing the chance to hold their newborn baby!” she says.
The issue will be available on July 31st for the month of August. Check out the cover picture below:
