Officially, the first day of winter is today, December 22nd, and for self-proclaimed beach-girl Kellie Pickler, snowy days aren’t really her favorites — but give her just the right amount of the white stuff, just for a little while, and that’s a winner of a winter for Kellie. 

“Honestly, I’m not a big snow person, but I don’t mind snow for a couple days. I don’t like just a little snow. I think it needs…if it’s gonna snow, it needs to just snow. At least snow enough where you can sled and build snowmen. So, if it’s gonna snow for just a couple days, I’m good with that. I don’t want it to stay forever, though, ’cause I love warm weather. I’m more of a beach bum.”

Speaking of warm weather and the beach, happy New Year’s Day wedding anniversary to Kellie and hubby Kyle Jacobs, who were married in the balmy climes of the Caribbean this past January 1st!

Kellie is currently gearing-up for the release of her long-awaited third album, titled 100 Proof, coming January 24th! You can pre-order yours from your favorite music stores, including HERE on iTunes, where you get an immediate download of the title track with your pre-order — and the iTunes album also includes the exclusive bonus track, “Arm Candy.”
