Kellie Picker’s devotion to the USO runs deep CMA

We absolutely adore Kellie Pickler. But don’t be fooled by her blonde locks and million-dollar smile, there’s so much more to this beauty.

Kellie knows the harsh realities of life, and she’s not afraid help those who are stuck in difficult situations. She once shaved her head in solidarity with a friend who was battling cancer, and she’s jumped at every opportunity she has had to do a USO tour.

In fact, she’s jumped at nine opportunities.

Kellie joined her pal Craig Morgan to talk about their USO experiences at the 2016 CMA Music Festival. While she and her husband actually eloped, they didn’t really plan the timing too well. Directly after their tied the knot, they had to spend their honeymoon on a USO tour since she had already committed to it and wasn’t about to cancel.

“The joke was we got the honeymoon bunker,” she laughed before turning serious. “You don’t know how good you’ve got it until you’re taken to some of these places in the world. It’s the same world, but it’s a different world. There’s right and there’s wrong and it just feels so right for me to do these.”
