When I talked to Kellie Pickler
last week, she told me what the new year means to her. Usually, it means another blissful year of being Mrs. Kyle Jacobs.
“The new year is our anniversary. So normally, Kyle and I would celebrate that, and we were planning on going to the
Caribbean for our second anniversary. But my baby sister Courtney is due with a baby in January, so this year we’re just staying
home in Nashville and waiting. I’m on sister call. Or, ‘Aunt Kellie’ duty,” Pickler told me. “Because the baby could be here
any minute and I need to be close so I can get to the hospital.”
But even with her Aunt Kellie duties, she’ll still
have time for a New Year’s resolution, right? She’s not so sure.
“To be honest, we shouldn’t wait until the new year
to make changes in our lives if we need to. You should do it immediately. And not procrastinate. But I’d be the pot calling
the kettle black,” she said with a laugh.
