Kellie Pickler releases song for grandmother

“If It Wasn’t For A Woman” is available now

Kellie Pickler has released “If It Wasn’t For A Woman,” a song inspired and written in tribute to her late grandmother, Faye Pickler, who raised her and continues to serve as an important inspiration in the singer’s life. Pickler co-wrote the song with her husband Kyle Jacobs and songwriter Brian Bunn. Pickler notably debuted the song with Jacobs on piano during a CMA Music Festival performance earlier this year. The song is available now for download and streaming and currently climbing the iTunes Country chart.

“This song is so incredibly special to me…it means a lot to me to be able to spotlight the love of the woman who helped shape me into the woman I am today,” the country music darling shares of her grandmother Faye, who passed away from lung cancer in 2002. “One of the most beautiful things about this song is that this is real life in a song. I think so many people will identify with this sweet story.”

Kellie Pickler’s CMT docu-comedy series I Love Kellie Pickler, is about to wrap it’s third-season, with her and her husband’s “sweet and silly shenanigans” (Entertainment Tonight) continuing the show’s successful streak of high ratings. The hit television series follows a “hilarious and so vivacious” (Hollywood Life) Pickler and her husband songwriter/producer Kyle Jacobs, and debuted in November 2015, propelling the network to its highest premiere with adults since 2012 and women since 2008. I Love Kellie Pickler returned for its third season in August of 2017.

Pickler also recently debuted as the host of new Nashville-based daytime talk show Pickler & Ben co-hosted by media personality Ben Aaron. The show, directed by the award-winning Joe Terry (The Oprah Winfrey Show) launched nationally on September 18th to milestone ratings and ranking No. 1 in the time slot in the Nashville market. Pickler & Ben is produced by Grammy Award-winning superstar Faith Hill, co-founder of Happy Street Entertainment, Lisa Erspamer, and president and CEO of Sandbox Entertainment Jason Owen in partnership with The E.W. Scripps Company.

This Christmas, Pickler is teaming with pal Phil Vassar for the joint A Christmas Tour. The 13 date trek kicks off at the end of November and runs through December. In honor of the tour, Pickler and Vassar teamed up to release a new Christmas single this holiday season called “The Naughty List,” written by Vassar and Juliana Songs.
