Kellie Pickler To Join Phil Vassar For Special Holiday Tour And New Christmas Single “The Naughty List”

Country music fans know that when the holidays come around that they are in for a treat from their favorite stars. Now, two essential holiday-favorites, recording artist Phil Vassar and country music darling Kellie Pickler, are teaming up this season for a special Christmas tour around the country launching at the end of November and continuing throughout December. Tickets for A Christmas Tour go on sale Friday, July 28. 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 Phil Vassar and Juliana Songs, and co-produced by Vassar and long-time friend Dane Bryan, who also co-produced Vassar’s first Christmas album, Noel.

“I absolutely love Kellie, and am so excited to go on tour with her,” shares Vassar, who has completed a Christmas tour every year since 2009. “She is an amazingly talented lady and everyone who comes to our show this holiday season is going to be in for a fun time!”

Vassar established himself as a holiday-favorite upon the 2011 release of his first Christmas album, Noel. The album was co-produced by Vassar and his longtime friend Dane Bryan and includes covers of holiday favorites such as “Away in a Manger” and “Merry Christmas Darling” as well as witty original songs with “Santa’s Gone Hollywood” and “Big Ol’ Texas Christmas.” Noel also included a fan-favorite version of Vassar’s own “Let’s Make A Little Christmas,” a track that originally appeared on 2007’s Hear Something Country Christmas, which also included Kellie Pickler’s sultry rendition of “Santa Baby.”

“So excited that Phil and I are hitting the road together this Christmas season,” shared the country music recording artist and reality star Kellie Pickler. “Being able to tour with Phil is an amazing honor…he’s an incredibly talented artist.  We’re both looking forward to spreading as much cheer as we can this holiday season!”

Kellie Pickler’s 2007 version of “Santa Baby,” which she performed that year at “CMA Country Christmas,” quickly became a Christmas classic and landed on Taste of Country’s Top 50 Country Christmas Songs. She also notably performed “The Man With The Bag” at the 2013 Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Pickler continues to release hauntingly memorable holiday singles, with “My Christmas Caroline” debuting in 2015 and last year releasing a special version of “White Christmas” – a tune she famously covered with Michael Bublé in 2013 and remains the biggest-selling Christmas song of all time. An avid supporter of the military, Pickler has completed 11 USO tours and spent five Christmas holidays performing for servicemen and women overseas.

Pickler has further celebrated the Christmas spirit with two holiday collections in her Southern home goods line with the Grand Ole Opry, Selma Drye. The collections have included ornaments, festive frames, decorative wreaths, as well as two special one-of-a-kind collector’s snow globes that play Pickler’s versions of “My Christmas Caroline” and  “White Christmas.”

Athena® Bottled Water Kicks Off Breast Cancer Awareness Month With A Private Event In Nashville On Sept. 30 With Amy Grant And Kellie Pickler

Kellie Pickler and Amy GrantAthena® bottled water was created for the cause® in 2003 by a breast cancer survivor who had one purpose:  to win the war against breast cancer. Since then, the bottled water brand has donated $2 million to prestigious organizations to support breast cancer awareness, care, education, and research. Purchased by DS Services of America, Inc. (DS Services) in 2010, the Athena brand has enlisted musical superstars Amy Grant and Kellie Pickler to help the cause by naming them Athena® Warriors – Grant in 2012 and Pickler earlier this year. As Athena® Warriors, Grant and Pickler will both perform at a private, invitation-only “Eat. Drink. Party Pink.” event in Nashville, Tenn. on Sept. 30, 2014 to kick off October as Breast Cancer Awareness Month. During the festivities, Grant will debut a new song, “Welcome Yourself.”  The next day (Oct. 1), that song will be available for sale on iTunes with proceeds donated to the American Cancer Society.

“We are excited to gather in Nashville to hear a great night of music from our Athena® Warriors,” said Tom Harrington, President and CEO, DS Services. “What a great way to kick off Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We are honored that Amy is debuting her song at our event that night, and are so appreciative that she is donating proceeds from its sale to the American Cancer Society.”

 

“Music can be a lifeline for people,” said Grant. “Hearing the right words at the right time can be a powerful and encouraging experience and I hope this song is helpful to many. I am happy to serve as an Athena® Warrior again this year and donate proceeds from this song to the American Cancer Society. We all know someone who has suffered from this terrible disease, and I encourage everyone to do what they can to help raise awareness and funds for research.”

“Breast cancer really hit close to home for me when my “big sis,” Summer, was diagnosed at such an early age,” said Pickler. “I’m happy to say she is now cancer-free. But, so many other women continue to have to fight this disease and even more may not know they need to be aware of earlier detection than previously thought. That’s why I’m excited to be an Athena® Warrior…I want to help raise awareness so we can find a cure.”

 

About Athena® bottled water:    Created for the Cause® by a breast cancer survivor in 2003, Athena bottled water was purchased by DS Services of America, Inc. (DS Services) in 2010. Headquartered in Atlanta, Georgia, DS Services delivers bottled water, brewed beverages, water filtration systems and associated supplies to homes, offices, restaurants, food service organizations, convenience stores and retail locations across the U.S. Purchases of Athena bottled water have raised $2 million to fight breast cancer awareness, care, education and research.

Visit athenawater.com for more information.  Kellie Pickler and Amy Grant with bottles About Amy Grant: Amy Grant’s career spans over 25 years and stretches from her roots in gospel into becoming an iconic pop star, songwriter, television personality and philanthropist. She has sold more than 30 million albums, had six No. 1 hits, and been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In addition to her six GRAMMY Awards, Grant has earned 26 Dove Awards (including four Artist of the Year Awards). Her book, Mosaic: Pieces of My Life So Far, debuted in 2007. Conventional wisdom has it that Grant put Contemporary Christian music on the map. She achieved such breakthroughs as being the first Contemporary Christian artist to have a platinum record, the first to hit No. 1 on the Pop charts, and the first to perform at the GRAMMY Awards. Perhaps her greatest professional accomplishment was to open the door for a flood of other artists in pop and rock to sing about faith and soul and family and still grasp stardom. With that, her legacy as one of the most influential artists of the past couple of decades is assured. Yet her legacy will most certainly reach beyond her music. Several of her friends are breast cancer survivors, and Grant and her husband, Vince Gill, have contributed their time and voices to numerous cancer causes. As an Athena® Warrior, Grant reaches out to women battling breast cancer and to those who love them with quiet determination and true compassion. She sings about love and loss, faith and heartbreak, hope and healing. Her life is as genuine – and as beautiful – as her songs. Visit AmyGrant.com for more information. About Kellie Pickler: Award-winning country singer Kellie Pickler lives straight from her heart. Few can bridge life and art, story and song, so vibrantly and compellingly. Her rise to stardom began on “American Idol,” when she was just 19. A small-town North Carolina girl, who knows her family history made her into the strong, spunky and resilient person that she is today. Pickler’s beautiful spirit and natural good humor won the hearts of countless fans. After placing sixth on “American Idol” in 2006, she went on to record her first album, which produced three Top 20 hits, was certified Gold, and has sold more than 900,000 copies. Since then, Kellie has continued to record hit albums, perform in concert and earn the admiration and affection of countless fans serving as both an inspiration and role model. Her critically-acclaimed third album, 100 Proof, was named Rolling Stone’s Country Album of the Year in 2012. She has participated in seven USO tours thus far, and has worked with multiple charities. In 2013, Pickler competed on “Dancing with the Stars,” which she and her partner, Derek Hough, ultimately won. Soon after, she released her latest album, The Woman I Am. But despite her stardom, she remains a delightful, approachable woman with a wide-open heart. When her best friend, Summer Miller, was diagnosed with breast cancer at age 36 in 2012, Pickler knew she wanted to flight this battle alongside her. A week before Miller started chemotherapy, Pickler shaved her head in solidarity with the friend she calls her sister. She asked Athena® Water to join her in spreading awareness about breast cancer to younger women. Miller is thankfully cancer-free now. In honor of her friend, Pickler proudly serves as an Athena® Warrior and continues to fight for a cure. Visit KelliePickler.com for more information.

Kellie Pickler Partners With The American Lung Association And Unveiling Of LUNG FORCE

Kellie Pickler - photo 130723_Kellie_Pickl#16142EF currentThe American Lung Association, in partnership with national presenting sponsor, CVS Caremark, unveiled LUNG FORCE, a new initiative to make lung cancer in women a public health priority, drive policy change and increase research funding.

According to the Lung Association’s inaugural Women’s Lung Health Barometer, a survey of more than 1,000 American adult women that measures women’s knowledge and perceptions about lung cancer, women’s awareness of lung cancer’s impact is terribly low. Despite being the #1 cancer killer of women, the Barometer revealed that only 1 percent of women cited lung cancer as a cancer that is top–of–mind for them. The reality is that more than 108,000 women in the U.S. will be diagnosed with lung cancer this year and, on average, less than half will be alive next year.

The Realities of Lung Cancer
The Barometer revealed 78 percent of women are not aware that lung cancer has killed more women than breast cancer since 1987. The truth is anyone can get lung cancer, even if you’re part of the 86 percent of women who don’t smoke. In fact, two–thirds of lung cancer cases are in those who have never smoked or have successfully quit smoking. These findings underscore the lack of awareness and the need for LUNG FORCE.

“Together we have to make lung cancer in women a public health priority and change our thinking about this disease. We hope that with increased awareness and education, women will join the fight against lung cancer and for lung health,” said Harold Wimmer, National President and Chief Executive Officer of the American Lung Association. “We are proud to introduce LUNG FORCE and honored to have CVS Caremark as a partner in this new movement that unites women to stand together against lung cancer.”

Introducing LUNG FORCE
In its first year, LUNG FORCE seeks to unite women against lung cancer and for lung health, and encourage them to raise their voices for change. Through nationwide efforts, LUNG FORCE will make lung cancer a cause that people care about and act on, educate and empower patients and healthcare providers, and raise critical funds for lung cancer research. Lung Force

CVS Caremark Signs On as National Presenting Sponsor
As part of its continued commitment to healthy living, CVS Caremark, the national presenting sponsor of LUNG FORCE, will support the initiative via an in–store promotion throughout June. CVS/pharmacy customers will have the opportunity to contribute to LUNG FORCE at checkout with all proceeds earmarked to support the movement. Earlier this year, CVS Caremark announced its decision to remove tobacco from its retail stores.

“We are excited to be part of LUNG FORCE and look forward to spreading the word about this movement,” said Helena B. Foulkes, President, CVS/pharmacy. “This partnership aligns with our commitment to help our customers on the path to better health. We believe our customers and employees will raise their voices and rally behind this important women’s health issue.”

Stars Raise Their Voices and Join LUNG FORCE
Lung cancer is a disease that has personally affected actress and author, Valerie Harper and entertainer and country music star, Kellie Pickler. Their experiences motivated them to join LUNG FORCE.

Harper, widely known from television as Rhoda Morgenstern, has recently become a beacon of hope and inspiration for cancer patients. In 2009, Harper was diagnosed with non–small cell lung cancer, and after her tumor was removed, went back to normal life. In 2013, she began to experience strange symptoms that were discovered to be an unusual metastasis of her lung cancer. Given as few as three months to live, Harper decided to set aside the death sentence, work on her treatment and go on living life as fully as possible. More than a year later, she’s still hard at work, guest starring on television shows and actively sharing her cancer experience with millions of Americans. Last week, she testified in front of the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Aging about cancer and called for an increased investment in cancer research funding.

“I feel fortunate that I have been able to defy the odds of this challenging disease given that my mother died of lung cancer although, like me, she never smoked,” said Harper. “And while I have my newfound strength and the opportunity, I want to make lung cancer a disease that people care about and act on. Whether that’s educating key decision makers or working for advances in early detection, I am committed to seeing LUNG FORCE succeed in extending and saving women’s lives.”

When she was 15, Pickler lost her grandmother to lung cancer just one day after she was diagnosed. Pickler’s grandmother played an important role in her life and continues to serve as an inspiration for her work. In her remembrance, Pickler included a song called “My Angel” on her debut album, Small Town Girl.

“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.”

Pickler appears alongside Grammy–nominated singer–songwriter, Jewel, in the first LUNG FORCE public service announcement. The PSA calls on women to understand lung cancer’s impact, share what they know with others, and join the fight at LUNGFORCE.org.

Turn Turquoise to Support LUNG FORCE
As part of the launch of LUNG FORCE and the inaugural LUNG FORCE Turquoise Takeover during National Women’s Lung Health Week (May 11th — 17th) more than 90 landmarks including Niagara Falls (New York) and the Big “G” in Ghirardelli Square (San Francisco) will turn turquoise in support of the women’s lung health movement. At the same time, more than 50 proclamations will be issued by government officials. Americans can show their support for LUNG FORCE by visiting LUNGFORCE.org to take the LUNG FORCE pledge, turning their social media channels turquoise and using the #LUNGFORCE hashtag when sharing posts about the movement. They can also help on the local level by joining a LUNG FORCE Walk in their area to help raise funds for research, advocacy and education.

About LUNG FORCE
LUNG FORCE is a new national movement led by the American Lung Association to unite women against lung cancer, the #1 cancer killer of women. LUNG FORCE has three priorities: 1) Make lung cancer a cause that people care about – and act on; 2) Educate and empower patients and healthcare providers and 3) Raise critical funds for lung cancer research. The American Lung Association’s LUNG FORCE is nationally presented by CVS Caremark. Find out more at LUNGFORCE.org.
