  2. She’s All About Family

    “What’s not to love about a beautiful, sweet and funny girl from Albemarle, NC! She loves her grandparents and adores her little brother, and now has a handsome husband to look at. I’ve watched little Kellie Pickler since her Idol days and she has blossomed in to a wonderful entertainer, but has remained very humble and sweet. Most of all that girl can make me laugh!” – Donna H.

    “When her friend had cancer she shaved her head in support. Her fame has not changed her, she is still a down-to-earth southern lady.” – Tina L.

  4. She Helps People

    “She is the cutest and most of all sweetest person ever. She makes me laugh and makes my heart feel so much lighter. She is like the brightest star in the sky at night. I take care of my mom with Alzheimer’s and it gets rough, but she has always made me laugh which is so very important. I want her to know that she helps people so much, and I just love her to pieces. Her show is definitely going to be my favorite show, which I will watch over and over.” – RaDonna C.

Her charity work is also quite impressive! Love her to pieces!” – Michelle K.
