    Here is a story about Kelly putting her fame to good use.

    American Idol Visits American Soldiers

    Country music star and former American Idol contestant Kellie Pickler shares the stage with Pvt. Andrea Mixon, 703rd Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, Fort Stewart, Ga., during Kellie’s hit ‘Red High Heels’. Pickler visited Forward Operating Base Kalsu, Dec. 8, to help boost Soldier morale by singing six of her songs. .

    FORWARD OPERATING BASE KALSU — Though she may be best known for her red high heels, country artist and former American Idol contestant Kellie Pickler traded her heels for something a little more comfortable in order to visit the troops on the ground in Iraq.

    On Dec. 8, Pickler visited Forward Operating Base Kalsu to lend her voice to help boost Soldier morale.

    Pickler, whose visit was part of a six-day tour throughout Iraq, said she volunteered to perform at smaller bases like Kalsu that are often overlooked by performers.

    “It is nice to come and bring a little bit of home to the Soldiers,” Pickler said.

    To bring that piece of America here for the holidays, Pickler sang six songs, including her top-40 hits, ‘I Wonder’ and ‘Red High Heels’.

    Helping perform those songs were two 703rd Brigade Support Battalion, 4th Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division Soldiers, Pvt. Andrea Mixon and Sgt. Tiatiana Rieloff.

    Both military police said they were huge fans of Pickler and enjoyed a chance to interact with one of their idols.

    “It’s the first time I’ve laughed since I got here,” Rieloff said after singing back-up.

    While also singing back-up, Mixon said she was glad her role put her in the limelight when a film crew focused in on her act.

    “It got me on TV,” she said.

    Pickler said she will bring back plenty of memories from her tour.

    Known for incorporating personal memories into her music, Pickler said a major reason she writes and sings country music is because it’s a genre that allows her to write such songs. It is also a major reason why several Soldiers said they enjoy her music.

    Sgt. 1st Class Jennifer Williams, S2, intelligence section non-commissioned officer in charge, 2nd Brigade Combat Team, 3rd Infantry Division, said she enjoys Pickler’s music because it tells stories that everyone can relate to, and was pleased that she visited Kalsu.

    Pickler said she plans to incorporate memories of her Iraq visit, including Kalsu, into future music.

    “Gosh, it is just amazing what you see over here,” she said.

There were also many wet eyes when she sang it at the CMA Music Fest this past June, & that's a tough thing to acheive during a stadium show.
    I caught a replay of this on tv the other day. I was never a Pickler fan when she was on AI, so I haven't been following her career, but this song caught my attention in a big way. It was very good and she sounded great. Way to go, Kellie.

    Kellie took a big chance recording this song to begin with. It could have so easily come off as a cheesy pity party. Instead, her down-home charm and sincerity makes her delivery of the song incredibly touching. You can just see it in her eyes and hear it in her voice that she's really talking to her mom. Good for her for taking the risk. It's paid off for her.

    Kellie Pickler to Debut New Single at ACM Awards

    Kellie Pickler fans have yet another reason to tune into the Academy of Country Music Awards May 18 on CBS — their favorite songstress plans to debut her single “Don’t You Know You’re Beautiful” from her upcoming album.

    “I’m so excited to be performing on the show and doubly so, to be debuting the new single,” said Pickler, who is nominated for top new female at the show. “It’s such a great song, with a positive message and it’s different than any other song I’ve recorded before.”

    The single ships to radio in June, and Pickler’s sophomore album will be in stores later in the year.

    I know! I never liked short hair look on her, and it looks like she's keeping it. She's facially stunning nonetheless.

    The lower half of her body looks photoshopped to me. Like a cartoon. Maybe it's the lighting. But she's a hottie!
    One of these days I'll stop being sensitive. Until then, I'll continue to be devastated on a daily basis. Life breaks my heart.
