Kellie Pickler, former American Idol contestant, spends her honeymoon in Iraq because she didn’t want to skip a scheduled visit to entertain the troops.
Kellie Pickler said that there was no time to change her schedule after deciding at the last minute to marry her husband Kyle Jacobs while on a vacation in the Caribbean, and she was not about to cancel her USO appearance in Iraq for the troops because she felt that would not be right.
When asked by Parade if she regretted the decision she stated, “No, it was just that I had already committed to going over there and I wasn’t going to cancel because that wouldn’t have been right.”
She went on to explain that she would not have changed a thing now afterwards as they both got the experience of a life time.
“Kyle loved it,” Picker admitted. “It was such a great experience for him to be a part of. It’s not every day that you get to be a part of something so big and so special.”
“Out of everything that I’ve ever been able to be a part of, the USO is the one that I’m most proud of and honored to be able to work with. What they’re doing for our military is so great,” she explains.
Jacobs, who is a songwriter and Pickler were married on January 1st 2011.
