I wasn’t a big fan of her singing when she competed on American Idol, but I’ve always thought she was gorgeous. Now Kellie Pickler‘s Maxim photos reaffirm my thoughts. A devout supporter of our nation’s military, she chose to honor our troops on this Maxim cover sporting an adorably sexy uniform. I totally want that jacket!
Did you know Kellie just completed her fifth USO tour overseas this May entertaining soldiers across the world?
How awesome! Not only that, but her grandfather is a retired Marine, and she explained that she’s
…always had a great deal of respect for anyone who serves our country. It really does take someone special to sacrifice everything. I don’t mean just their lives, either. There are men who are sacrificing the chance to hold their newborn baby!
I love how much she genuinely appreciates all of the hard work and dedication it takes to serve and protect our country, instead of just being another singer turned model posing on the cover of Maxim with no patriotic background. She’s come a long way since her Idol days, and I have a new found appreciation for her.
Are you a Kellie Pickler fan? How awesome are her efforts to support our troops?
