Breast cancer fundraiser

Pickler teams up with Grant to raise money for breast cancer awareness. The singers will perform at a private event, Eat. Drink. Party Pink,  that is scheduled to take place on September 30th, in Nashville. The event will kick off Breast Cancer Awareness month. Pickler’s sister was previously diagnosed with breast cancer:

Breast cancer really hit close to home for me when my ‘big sis,’ Summer, was diagnosed at such an early age. I’m happy to say she is now cancer-free. But so many other women continue to have to fight this disease, and even more may not know they need to be aware of earlier detection than previously thought. That’s why I’m excited to be an Athena Warrior…. I want to help raise awareness so we can find a cure.

This past trip we were at Camp Spann in Afghanistan, and there’s a little chapel there. It’s nothing fancy, but it has a lot of love, and my whole band and I stayed up one night until 3 a.m., picking with the soldiers who played guitar. We had a picking party. It’s kind of like a songwriter round, and people jump up onstage, pick and play whatever they want, and sing their hearts out. It was really cool to do that in a little chapel in Afghanistan.
