A Little Bit Country

Do you know who Kellie Pickler is? After this week, you probably do. She won the most awards at this week’s Country Music Television awards – three and is a former American Idol star. The reason I mention her is because CMT One Country donates to a charity [1] of the winner’s choice and Kellie has designated the AARP Foundation’s Grandparents [2] program as the beneficiary. Why? Kellie was raised by her grandparents and it’s something she has spoken about frequently as she has claimed the spotlight.
