It’s been 73+ years since Irving Berlin’s original recording of “White Christmas” was released, however it remains the biggest-selling Christmas song of all time. Its longing and coziness has especially been embraced by U.S. servicemen and women serving overseas, and with their sacrifice in mind, USO supporter and receiver of Department of Defense 2016 Spirit of Hope Award Kellie Pickler recorded and released a new version of the holiday standard, available now here.
“I just love the rich history of this holiday song and the fact that the lyrics serve as such a reminder of home for so many serving our country who are not able to be with their families during the holidays,” said Pickler. “I hope this version will take them home.”
To commemorate its release, Pickler’s Selma Drye home goods line will feature a collector’s item, a limited edition “White Christmas” snowglobe. Shop the line here. Pickler recently completed her 10th USO Tour, and her CMT docu-series, I Love Kellie Pickler, just wrapped production and its second season. For more information, please visit kelliepickler.com.
