Video: Kellie Pickler sings with soldier in Afghanistan on USO Christmas tour

Kellie Pickler selflessly gave up her Christmas holiday to be with the troops in Afghanistan. The country singer was part of the USO tour that shared the music of the holiday season with soldiers in the area. Away from their families and far from home, the star shared some great music on Wednesday for people defending America.

The former American Idol contestant was in the area for several days and she helped bring holiday cheer at the Kandahar Airfield base. Taking time for photographs with soldiers, visiting hurt warriors and performing for the troops, her time was spent cheering on American heros.

“Not every Christmas do you get 2 fist bump a soldier while hanging your feet off the back of a Chinook in Afghanistan,” tweeted Kellie Pickler from her official Twitter account on Thursday. The entertainer shared a picture of her spending a minute with a soldier.

The selfless acts of the country singer remind us all of the importance to remember the troops that are away from their families over the holidays. Making the lives of these soldiers a little more comfortable while on duty is quite a nice holiday present!
