As if Kellie Pickler wasn’t already the cutest thing on two legs, last night confirmed it for me. Kellie not only performed at the Grand Old Opry last night. Which…trust me…was a treat in itself. But she also debuted her new line of home goods named after her pistol of a great grandma…Selma Drye.
Before you read the details of the amazing night you need to know two important things: This stuff is really darling. No…seriously. It will look great in a variety of different homes. And two, when you purchase anything with Turquoise…proceeds go to help battling Lung cancer in honor of Kellie’s grandmother. And that’s AMAZING.
Nashville- (April 14, 2015)- The Grand Ole Opry launched its first artist-curated merchandise collection– Selma Drye by Kellie Pickler home goods collection– at a special launch party backstage at the Grand Ole Opry House tonight. The collection of home goods, inspired by Pickler’s great-grandmother Selma Drye, includes Pickler’s touch on unique frames, candles, pillows, dishes, aprons, canisters and select furniture pieces. Pickler was on hand between performances on two Opry shows last night to talk about her great-grandmother Selma Drye and how she inspired the various items in the collection.
“When you get a house, it takes a while to make it feel like a home,” said Kellie Pickler. “My great-grandmother had a simple, loving touch that made her house a home like no other. It’s really nice being able to take things I know she would have loved and create a line inspired by her.”
“When we began thinking about working with artists on curated Opry collections and spoke with Kellie about the opportunity, we immediately fell in love with the stories she told of her great-grandmother, Selma Drye,” said Kim O’Dell, the Opry’s Director of Retail. “We knew the way Kellie described Selma’s unique style and authentic way of living was perfectly in line with the types of product experiences true to the Opry. We’re excited to work with Kellie, and more artists in the future, all of whom will have their own influences and unique connections to the Opry.”
Selma Drye by Kellie Pickler is available online at www.Opry.com and in the two Grand Ole Opry retail stores in Nashville, TN (The Opry Shop at the Grand Ole Opry House and Opry Originals at 300 Broadway).
