This week’s Women Crush Wednesday goes to…Kellie Pickler! Kellie Pickler hasn’t stopped moving since her American Idol days. After coming in 5th place on the singing competition, she released 4 albums, won Dancing With The Stars, toured the world and is co-starring with her husband in their own reality show, I Love Kellie Pickler.
Her debut album, featuring ‘Red High Heels’, sold more than 900,000 copies. In 2011, her third album was named the Number 1 Country Album of the Year by Rolling Stone. One of her most popular songs, ‘Best Days Of Your Life’, is off of her 2nd album. One of the co-writers on this song was Taylor Swift, who is also featured in the music video.
Pickler is a huge supporter of the U.S. Military. She often tours military bases putting on free shows for soldiers and has also been known to send deployed soldiers care-packages and other goodies. When she isn’t supporting the military, she is raising funds for St. Jude’s Children’s Research Hospital and visiting patients.
The docu-series, I Love Kellie Pickler, debuted in 2015. Season three began just a few weeks ago, but you can find the newest episodes on CMT on Thursday nights at 11 pm.
