It takes place in Nashville where Pickler will co-host with New York City journalist Ben Aaron. The new show will cover lifestyle topics including cooking, entertainment, home decor, gardening, beauty, and fashion. Disney/ABC Home Entertainment and Television Distribution will distribute the show nationally and Scripps will debut it in 20 of its 24 television markets.
Kellie Pickler was a contestant on American Idol at the age of 19, where she finished in the top 10. She has produced four country music albums and won the Mirror Ball Trophy in 2013 on the ABC’s hit show “Dancing with the Stars.” Her CMT docu-comedy TV series “I Love Kellie Pickler” first launched in November 2015 and will return for its third season this summer.Ben Aaron earned three Emmy Awards as a features reporter for “New York Live” on WNBC. He has stories on YouTube that have millions of views, too. His wife, Ginger Zee, is a chief meteorologist for “Good Morning America” and he will team up with her this month on a new DIY Network renovation show!
The new television show does not have a name yet, but Hill is definitely excited about her latest undertaking, “Kellie is very much southern while Ben is everything New York; complete opposites but together their chemistry is magic and our viewers are going to love them.” She says that the daytime talk show will bring southern charm and inspiration to viewers. Also, top tastemakers in many areas will guest star on the show to give their expert insight. Get ready for its debut on September 18th!
Faith Hill is currently on the road with husband Tim McGraw for their Soul2Soul Tour. The duo is racing up the charts with their most recent hit “Speak to a Girl,” and even made an appearance on the soundtrack for the movie The Shack, which features McGraw in a small acting role.
Faith Hill shares executive producer credits with two other producers, Lisa Erspamer, the former executive producer for the Oprah Winfrey Show, and Sandbox Entertainment president and CEO Jason Owen.
“Our vision for this show is to deliver the best of lifestyle content with two very talented and charismatic hosts,” says executive producer Erspamer. The staff is excited to combine an entertaining show with a one-of-a-kind shopping ability, so viewers will be able to buy items they see during the show.
