We know Kellie Pickler is awesome, but then she does something like this and we are reminded just how awesome she truly is.
The country star spent the holidays in the Middle East with our troops on another USO tour, marking the seventh USO tour for Pickler.
Her nine-day tour was part of the USO’s “Every Moment Counts” campaign. The campaign was launched to bring appreciation and awareness to the everyday moments that our troops and their families miss. Visit www.USOmoments.org to send a thank-you to our servicemen and women, and find out how you can help.
Pickler tweeted: “Not every Christmas do you get 2 fist bump a soldier while hanging your feet off the back of a Chinook in Afghanistan.”
Thank-you is really not enough for our troops’ service and sacrifice, but we will still say it…. THANK-YOU!
And thank-you to Kellie Pickler for spending Christmas overseas and helping to bring them some joy and a bit of home.
There’s a new song to add to your Country Music Christmas collection.
Kellie Pickler has recorded the Christmas song, “The Man With The Bag.” The tune was co-written by Harold Stanley, Irving Taylor, and Dudley Brooks, and made popular by Kay Starr in the 1950s. Several artists have covered the song throughout the years, and Pickler has now given us her take on it.
“The Man With The Bag” will be available for download on November 25th! We love all things Pickler so we can’t wait. Here is the iTunes link: https://itunes.apple.com/nz/album/the-man-with-the-bag-single/id735078454.
It’s hard to believe that Kellie Pickler was once just another country singing contestant on American Idol. Since her days of trying to impress Simon Cowell and being confused by calamari, Kellie has charmed the music industry with tons of accolades, won Dancing with the Stars, crisscrossed the country on huge tours and released three successful albums.
On November 11, Pickler will release her fourth studio album, The Woman I Am. The release marks her first album with new label, Black River Entertainment. The album clings close to her musical roots of traditional country with hints of today’s hottest trends. Produced by Frank Liddell and Luke Wooten, it’s sure to appease long-time Pickler fans while also winning over a ton of new ones.
Country fans have already heard two of the album’s 13 tracks, the punchy album opener “Little Bit Gypsy” and the heartfelt closing ballad “Someone Somewhere Tonight.” In between, the album takes listeners on an impressive journey through cheating, falling in love, forgiveness and vulnerability.
Track #2, the sassy “Ring for Sale” (co-written by Chris Stapleton and Jim Beavers) is a tongue-in-cheek ode to a cheating lover. This isn’t your typical woman scorned song, but tells the tale of a cheating fiancée and his resourceful ex, who plans to make a pretty penny from selling the ring. “Act right now before he finds out,” Pickler sings, “And I’ll throw in the dress for free.”
The musical journey continues with the swinging vibe of “Buzzin’” before venturing into the ballad territory with the album’s title track, “The Woman I Am.” The track, co-penned by Pickler and her husband, Kyle Jacobs, is a definite standout on the album, an ironic mix of confidence and vulnerability that laments the duality of a woman. “Sometimes I cry at night, fall to pieces with Patsy Cline,” Pickler laments, “Man, I miss songs like that, that’s just the woman I am…”
As the album continues, we fall in love with “Closer to Nowhere” before paying homage to Pickler’s spitfire of a great grandma, “Selma Drye.” Another highlight comes in the form of “I Forgive You,” as Pickler admits there’s “no whiskey to numb the pain” before coming to the realization, “Only one thing left for me to do, I forgive you.”
As the album winds down, there’s the fun and flirty “Bobbie and Clyde,” the rousing “No Cure for Crazy” and “Tough All Over,” which once again hits on Pickler’s vulnerable side. Consider this track Part 2 to “The Woman I Am.”
If you’re already a Kellie Pickler fan, this album will remind you why you fell in love with the singer. If you’ve been on the fence about Pickler in the past, this album should win you over with its diversity, touching vulnerability and true country sound.
One thing is for certain, after listening to The Woman I Am, we feel like we know Kellie Pickler for the woman she is.

“I was doing an interview. And a gentleman said, ‘So, if I were to tell someone who doesn’t listen to country music and is not familiar with you to get one song off iTunes to download that kind of describes you in a nutshell, what would it be?’ I thought and then I said, ‘I don’t think I’ve written it yet, but I’m going to,’ and my husband and I wrote it that night.”

Kellie Pickler appeared on Good Morning America earlier today to help kick off “GMA Goes Pink” in support of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
By her side this morning was one of Kellie’s best friends, Summer. Summer was diagnosed with breast cancer last year, and Kellie had joined her friend in shaving her head in support and solidarity. Over a year later, we are so happy that Summer is doing well now. Kellie posted on her Facebook page that Summer has a few rounds of chemotherapy left, but is cancer free! Amazing news… stay strong, Summer!
Breast Cancer awareness is a cause near and dear to my heart. My amazing mom passed away from this terrible disease in July so this is all very personal to me.
Kellie is and always has been a class act, and she has all of our respect. Thank-you Kellie and GMA for helping to bring awareness!
Watch Kellie’s GMA appearance and performance of “Someone Somewhere Tonight” below. The song will be included on her new album, The Woman I Am, which drops on November 11th.
For all of the Breast Cancer fighters and survivors out there, you are amazingly strong & keep fighting!
Kellie & Summer last year:
Country and denim go hand-in-hand, so it’s no surprise that Kellie Pickler loves her jeans!
In the new US Weekly, the country sweetheart models the latest denim trends in an exclusive photo shoot.
Pickler tells US:
“I’m obsessed with jeans. I mean I grew up country! … I could never be one of those trophy wives who wears evening gowns around the house. I’m a casual kind of gal!”
Here are a few beautiful images from the shoot, and make sure you check out the latest issue of the magazine on stands now!
Pickler’s fourth album, The Woman I Am, drops on November 12th!
Country sweetheart and one of our favorites, Kellie Pickler, has released her new single, “Little Bit Gypsy.”
The song is set for Pickler’s upcoming fourth studio album, which is expected to be out later this year through Black River Entertainment. The track was co-written by Pickler’s husband, Kyle Jacobs, with Tammi Kidd Hutton and Fred Wilhelm, and produced by Frank Liddell and Luke Wooten.
“Little Bit Gypsy” is the follow-up to the breathtaking “Someone Somewhere Tonight.” From ballads to high energy, Pickler can do it all.
The Dancing With The Stars champ shared: ”It’s a fun song and the lyrics are clearly me. My husband wrote it, and he didn’t really know what he was signing up for when we got together. I love that it starts off, ‘Boy, there’s a few things you need to know about me before you let your sweet heart get in too deep.’ And, ‘Little Bit Gypsy’ is a fun song to sing in our shows too.”
Kellie is currently finishing up her upcoming album and performing on tour. For more info and tour dates, visit www.KelliePickler.com.
