"I drink Rockin' Refuel's lean line of drinks because they have the perfect amount of protein that I need to refuel after a workout with fewer calories, plus they taste great," said Pickler. "Staying in shape while on the road touring isn't easy but it's essential when you're performing every night, so I make sure my tour bus is always stocked before we head out."
Pickler is the latest addition to Team Rockin' Refuel, joining football star Patrick Willis, professional basketball player Deandre Jordan, elite triathlete T.J. Tollakson and professional lacrosse player Brendan Mundorf. As a Team Rockin' Refuel member, she will be featured in a national campaign for Rockin' Refuel's lean product line, and will be partnering with fellow team members on upcoming social media activations.
"We're very excited to have Kellie Pickler join Team Rockin' Refuel," said Shamrock Farms Director of Brand Management, Blake Atkinson. "Like our professional athletes, she understands that staying healthy and fit requires the right amount of daily protein to keep her muscles and body in shape. And our lean line of protein beverages, with their fewer calories and carbs, are geared more towards active females so she's a perfect fit."
