CMT Updates I Love Kellie Pickler Premiere

Comedic Series Starring Kellie Picker and Husband Kyle Jacobs to Debut on Nov. 5

I Love Kellie Pickler, the highly-anticipated docu-comedy starring Kellie Pickler and her husband, songwriter-producer Kyle Jacobs, has been assigned an updated premiere date of Nov. 5 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.

The new premiere date was announced Thursday (Sept. 24).

“When my husband co-wrote a song titled ‘Ain’t No Cure for Crazy’ and said it was meant just for me, I had to wonder,” Pickler said playfully. “We know how crazy our life is with both of us being in the entertainment business and all that it entails while trying to maintain a somewhat ‘normal’ marriage. It’ll be fun to let the rest of the world see into that window of our life.”

“Kellie and I have been together almost eight years now, and we have written songs together and worked in the studio together, but this is a whole new, crazy experience,” Jacobs added. “I hope the cameras were able to capture how much we love each other, how much we love to laugh and how much we love living life with our friends. … To us, our friends are family. That’s who we are and what we want our viewers to experience with us.”

“Since her days on American Idol, Kellie has captured the hearts of many with her pretty smiles, good humor and spirited personality,” said executive producer Ryan Seacrest. “Like Kellie herself, this new show has lots of heart. CMT is the perfect home for this show, which will take audiences on a relatable journey with Kellie and her husband Kyle as they navigate life through work, music, friends and family.”

Recognized and beloved for her fun-loving personality, uniquely hysterical witticisms and Southern charm, I Love Kellie Pickler will follow Pickler as she navigates her madcap relationships with friends, family and the unpredictability of couplehood alongside her husband, her complete opposite.

Pickler catapulted from small town obscurity to become a household name, thanks to American Idol and Dancing With the Stars. Her gold-certified debut album Small Town Girl featured her signature hits “Red High Heels” and “I Wonder.” She followed the success with her self-titled second album which featured her platinum-certified “Best Days of Your Life.” 100 Proof, her third project, showcased both her powerful voice as well as her songwriting prowess and was named by The Washington Post among the best albums of 2012.” Her most recent album, The Woman I Am, was critically acclaimed by the national media.

Last year, Pickler voiced the lead character in the animated Veggie Tales movie Beauty and the Beet and performed eight songs on the official soundtrack album. Earlier this year, she launched her first home goods line, Selma Drye by Kellie Pickler.

A proud supporter of the men and women in the U.S. military, she has completed eight USO tours and was presented the Operation Troop Aid Chris Kyle Patriot Award for the acknowledgement of her unwavering and impassioned support and contributions to the U.S. armed forces and their families.
