Kellie Pickler Wins Picture of the Year Honors at 2012 Taste of Country Awards

The image of a newly-shaved Kellie Pickler sitting alongside good friend Summer Miller as Miller prepared to begin her fight against breast cancer proved to be the most memorable of 2012. Pickler’s photo was voted the Picture of the Year by fans in the 2012 Taste of Country Awards, which concluded on January 15.

Pickler’s picture took nearly 39 percent of the vote — four percentage points more than the image of Carrie Underwood planting a smooch on a lucky boy from Kentucky. Tim McGraw‘s buff bod finished third with almost eight percent. Miranda Lambert dressed as Honey Boo Boo was fourth of a field of seven.

The show of solidarity is no doubt what earned Pickler her first-ever Taste of Country Award. “It’s just hair,” she told Ellen DeGeneres on the comedian’s talk show. “We made a pact that we’d shave our heads together … I think it’s important to have a cancer buddy.”

Congratulations to Pickler and her fans for winning this prestigious honor, and continued well-wishes to Miller as she battles breast cancer.
