Country Icon Kellie Pickler Feels Blessed with Successful Career

If you’ve ever wondered the true definition of a Southern belle, look no further than Kellie Pickler. The North Carolina native couldn’t be more thankful for the career she’s built and the people she’s met along the way.

While her career continues to flourish, this country icon takes pride in giving back to her country by participating in 11 USO Tours. In 2015, Pickler received the Operation Troop Aid Chris Kyle Patriot Award in recognition of her unwavering support for the troops.

Light up the holidays with Kellie Pickler & Phil Vassar: A Christmas Tour on Thursday, December 21st, 7:30 p.m. at Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts and don’t miss their new holiday single, “The Naughty List.”
