WARREN, N.J., April 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Flonase® Allergy Relief is helping an unlikely team realize they are greater than their allergies. Allergy sufferer and country music sensation Kellie Pickler will challenge social media stars, The Eh Bee Family, to try their hand at country music and learn from the best as they travel to some of the worst allergy cities in the U.S. Like Pickler, matriarch of The Eh Bee Family, "Mama Bee," and her son, Mr. Monkey, are plagued by allergies, but are determined to be greater than their watery eyes and runny noses.
The team will kick off the two-week road trip in New York City on April 18 before Pickler guides The Eh Bee Family south to five allergy-ridden U.S. cities. The Eh Bee Family will end their journey on April 30 in Austin, Texas, where they will reconnect with Pickler at the iHeartCountry Festival.
"Growing up in North Carolina, it was a constant battle to get my allergies under control. Then I moved to Nashville and my allergies just got worse," said Pickler. "I don't have time for allergies to get the best of me, especially because of how much I travel. With the help of Flonase®, I'm able to be greater than my allergies and put my energy into things I love doing – performing country music all over the world and enjoying the great outdoors."
Along with Pickler, The Eh Bee Family will post their Greater American Road Trip experiences and allergy-fighting tips on social media.
"Our family loves to be spontaneous, have fun and live in the moment. But sometimes our allergies can get in the way of doing the activities we love, especially for me and my son," said Mama Bee. "Thanks to Flonase®, we're ready to face our allergies and head out on the road trip adventure of a lifetime through some of the most allergy-ridden cities in the U.S."
