As proof that magical moments continue to happen on the Grand Ole Opry stage after ninety years, country cutie Kellie Pickler recently took the stage to pay homage to one of her greatest musical heroes: Tammy Wynette.
Maybe it’s her drawl or the sweet look in her eyes, but Pickler mastered this rendition of “Stand By Your Man” this past April, when she was on hand to launch her own home goods collection at the Grand Ole Opry. The “Selma Drye by Kellie Pickler” collection, which includes everything from frames to candles to dishes, is available online and at the two Grand Ole Opry retail stores in Nashville.
“When you get a house, it takes a while to make it feel like a home,” said Pickler said in a recent press release. “My great-grandmother had a simple, loving touch that made her house a home like no other. It’s really nice being able to take things I know she would have loved and create a line inspired by her.”
“When we began thinking about working with artists on curated Opry collections and spoke with Kellie about the opportunity, we immediately fell in love with the stories she told of her great-grandmother, Selma Drye,” added Kim O’Dell, the Opry’s Director of Retail. “We knew the way Kellie described Selma’s unique style and authentic way of living was perfectly in line with the types of product experiences true to the Opry. We’re excited to work with Kellie, and more artists in the future, all of whom will have their own influences and unique connections to the Opry.”
