It’s hard to believe that only a year has passed since Kellie Pickler joined the Hallmark Channel family, in 2018’s Christmas at Graceland. She quickly followed that with the sequel, Wedding at Graceland (a part of the network’s June Weddings programming event), in which she reprised the role of Laurel Couper (opposite Wes Brown as Clay Sheppard). Now Pickler is back, stretching her acting wings in her third Hallmark movie, The Mistletoe Secret, opposite Tyler Hynes and Patrick Duffy, only this time she’s not Laurel.

Hopefully, those characters will get to come back in another sequel down the road.
