Blonde bombshell Kellie Pickler is no stranger to the annual ABC special CMA Country Christmas. Her choice this year was her new single “Man With The Bag,” a remake of the 1954 holiday tune by Kay Starr.

Kellie’s version is bubbly, jazzy and a lot of fun. Above is an short Instagram of the performance. The video isn’t great, but the audio is terrific. We’ll post the full video as soon as we have it. “Man With the Bag” was released as a single by Pickler earlier this year, so if you were a fan of her Marilyn Monroe-esque performance, download it now.

During her pre-performance interview, Pickler was talking about her favorite holiday foods and she had an interesting answer — “fried okra.” That sounds delicious to us, but her husband Kyle Jacobs wasn’t quite sure what to make of that. Heh.
