We are sending out a huge congrats to Kellie Pickler and her husband Kyle Jacobs. The Department of Defense honored the couple with its Spirit of Hope Award on Wednesday September 28th.
The award is presented annually to distinguished Americans and organizations whose patriotism and service reflects that of Mr. Bob Hope. Recipients have contributed time, talent or resources to significantly enhance the quality of life of service members and their families serving around the world.
This isn’t Kellie’s first honor, she has also received the first-ever Operation Troop Aid Chris Kyle Patriot Award, given from the parents of the slain Navy SEAL during the 2015 CMA Music Festival, and in 2013 she received the Heart For The Warrior Award from the USO of North Carolina during the Salute to Freedom Gala.
We love the work Kellie does for our military men and woman. Be sure to catch Kellie on “I Love Kellie Pickler” on CMT!!
