Kellie has always been a vocal supporter of breast cancer awareness and research. In the past, she’s participated in the annual Opry Goes Pink event, and even shaved her head to support her friend, Summer, who was diagnosed in 2012.
This year, she’s raising awareness in a pink fashion once again! Kellie will be releasing “The Woman I Am” on special limited edition pink vinyl, available starting on September 30 to celebrate Breast Cancer Awarencess month in October.
All proceeds will go to Gilda’s House, a community-centered home for those dealing with cancer, in memory of comedian Gilda Radner. To pre-order the limited edition, pink vinyl, click HERE.
Kellie has teamed up with Meow Mix® cat food to kick off "It's Meow Time," a fun campaign inviting cat lovers, cat parents, and fans to create their own version of the iconic Meow Mix jingle in a professional mobile sound booth all to benefit the Food Bank For New York City. On Aug. 13, Kellie will be in the Big Apple to sing the iconic 30+ year-old jingle in Columbus Circle.
"Being a cat lover and previous cat parent myself, I am really looking forward to my turn of remixing the iconic Meow Mix jingle in the sound booth," said Kellie. "And, I hope we have a lot of other cat lovers and parents join us in this campaign because the more recordings, the more meals Meow Mix will donate to the Food Bank For New York City."
For every jingle recorded in the sound booth Meow Mix will donate 100 meals to the Food Bank For New York City to help less fortunate families feed their family felines.
The Meow Mix sound booth will be open August 14-16 at different hot spots throughout New York City including Washington Park/NYU, Penn Station/Macy’s and Union Square. Come join Kellie in the fun on Wednesday, August 13th starting at noon at Columbus Circle in New York City.

Kellie has joined forces with the American Lung Association to unveil LUNG FORCE, a new initiative to make lung cancer in women a public health priority.
According to the Lung Association recent survey of 1,000 American adult females, women’s awareness of lung cancer’s impact is terribly low. Despite being the #1 cancer killer of women, only 1 percent of women cited lung cancer as a cancer that is top–of–mind for them.
Kellie lost her grandmother to lung cancer when she was just 15 and only one day after she was diagnosed. Kellie's song "My Angel" from her debut album, Small Town Girl is in dedication to her grandmother.
“One of the hardest things I’ve had to experience was losing my grandmother to lung cancer,” said Pickler. “Not only was she a loving, strong, and gracious person, she was also the woman that I called ’mom.’ I support LUNG FORCE in hopes that others won’t have to lose such amazing women in their lives.”
