Country music entertainer Kellie Pickler will be making her Hallmark Channel this holiday season! More details on the television movie here!

Country music songstress and Pickler & Ben talk show co-host Kellie Pickler is set to star in a Hallmark original movie titled Christmas At Graceland. The television movie will premiere during the channel’s annual Countdown to Christmas which starts on October 26th.

Here’s the premise of the project:

“In ‘Christmas At Graceland,’ Laurel (Pickler), a Chicago-based business executive travels to Memphis to secure one of the city’s oldest family-owned banks. While in Memphis, Laurel reunites with an old flame Clay, a local music promoter with loftier aspirations. Though Laurel tries to keep her eye on the prize of the business acquisition, Clay is very persuasive reminding her of the days when they were a performing duo on the brink of stardom. Now Laurel’s focus turns to the home of the Blues and dreams of making music again.” 

As the title would suggest, Elvis Presley‘s Graceland does serve as a main backdrop for the story. The film will even shoot location at the historic home and its soundtrack will feature many of the songs made famous by the icon. Filming is set to kick off on July 9th.

“Not only are we thrilled to take viewers into one of America’s most beloved private residences, home of the late, great Elvis Presley, we are also thrilled to put the soundtrack of Elvis’ legendary career behind our romantic holiday movie,” shared Michelle Vicary, Executive Vice President, Programming & Publicity, Crown Media Family Networks.

Congrats to Kellie and we look forward to seeing her in the lead role! In celebration, enjoy Kellie’s 2007 cover of “Santa Baby” below.

“Santa Baby” Lyrics

Santa Baby,
Just slip a sable under the tree
For me
Been an awful good girl
Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa baby, a ’54 convertible too
Light blue
I’ll wait up for you, dear
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight
Think of all the fun I’ve missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed
Next year I could be just as good
If you’ll check off my Christmas list
Santa Baby, I want a yacht and really that’s not
A lot
Been an angel all year
Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa honey, one little thing I really need
The deed
To a platinum mine
Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex
And checks
Sign your ‘x’ on the line
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight
Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tif-fa-ny
I really do believe in you
Lets see if you believe in me
Santa Baby, forgot to mention one little thing
A ring
I don’t mean on the phone
Santa Baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry, tonight
