Kellie Pickler and her husband Kyle Jacobs tied the knot in the Caribbean in January 2011, but they celebrated their honeymoon in a much less traditional location — Iraq.  The new couple flew there so Kellie could entertain the troops just days after getting married.

“It was so romantic!” Kellie tells Parade with a laugh.  “No, it was just that I had already committed to going over there and I wasn’t going to cancel because that wouldn’t have been right.”

Kyle really enjoyed the trip in the end, and Kellie plans to embark on more USO tours in the future.  She says of the soldiers serving abroad, “”What they’re doing for our military is so great.  I’ve loved taking a little piece of home to our troops in Iraq or Afghanistan.”
