Pickler has remained mostly out of the spotlight in recent months, however, in 2021 she was announced as one of the USO’s Global Ambassadors, supporting the organization’s Give More Than Thanks initiative – a campaign encouraging all Americans to find actionable ways to express their gratitude for the service and sacrifice of our troops and their families.
Pickler is best known for her RIAA Gold-certified debut album Small Town Girl, which was released in 2006. The project included her breakout hits, “Red High Heels,” and “Best Days Of Your Life” and propelled her career to new heights after Idol. Pickler went on to release three additional albums, Kellie Picker (2008), 100 Proof (2012) and The Woman I Am (2013).
She also had a successful run on the talk show Pickler & Ben, which earned five Emmy nominations.
She’s also an actress, having appeared on several films on the Hallmark Channel, including Christmas at Graceland and Wedding at Graceland.
