Kellie Pickler to Wed Songwriter Kyle Jacobs
Kellie Pickler is getting married! The country beauty announced Wednesday that she is engaged to Nashville songwriter Kyle Jacobs.
June 15, which is normally is a sad day for Kellie as it’s the birthday of her late grandmother, quickly turned into one of the happiest days of her life when Kyle popped the question. “I remember saying to Kyle, ‘Baby it’s like I’m dreaming — but if this isn’t real, I’m going to be very upset!’” Kellie tells People magazine.
Kellie and Kyle met shortly after the singer’s breakup with Nashville Predators player, Jordin Tootoo, in 2007. Kellie says that Kyle’s love quickly took away the fear of getting married and gave her confidence in being herself. “He makes me feel so, so great about myself,” Kellie tells The Boot. “I feel so beautiful when I’m with him. He always tells me he likes me better with no makeup on and sweatpants. He makes me feel the most beautiful when I’m with him. As long as I’m healthy, then he is fine with whatever I wear.”
Kyle has co-written several huge country hits, including Garth Brooks‘ ‘More Than a Memory’ and Tim McGraw‘s latest single, ‘Still.’ “He is very talented,” Kellie gushed to The Boot about her future groom. “I have so much faith and belief in him. I think he’s going to be around for a long time in the songwriting industry.”
On Kellie’s latest album self-titled album, there are also a handful of songs written together by the happy couple. “It’s great when you are able to write with someone you are also in a relationship with and have intimacy with,” Kellie explains. “We have so much in common. It’s nice to take our love into the studio. He’s such a wonderful person.”
