Kellie Pickler’s Bold Mission to Rescue Chickens

Get Ready for the Premiere of I Love Kellie Pickler

Get ready to find even more reasons to love Kellie Pickler.

With one big red carpet, rescue chickens and workouts with bales of hay, we’re about to get some major insights into her reality on CMT’s I Love Kellie Pickler.

Pickler and her husband Kyle Jacobs recently sat down with CMT’s Cody Alan to talk about their new reality series and reveal a few clips from the show. From the looks of things, it’s going to be hysterical.

Like her response to her husband’s confused reaction the moment she arrives home with a cage full of chickens — four instead of the originally planned two.

“You don’t understand what these chickens have been going through,” she explains to him. “They were in like, a … chicken brothel.”

How can you not love this girl? I want to be friends with them. I want to go over to their house and eat barbecue and watch football and pick guitar around a fire in their backyard. I could get used to that.

But that would also mean getting used to cameras being around all the time, which they both admitted was a little strange at first.

“Waking up in the morning, you go to make your coffee and you’re like, ‘Whoa, where did you come from?’” Pickler joked to Alan.

This is the first time Pickler’s songwriter-producer hubby has really been in front of the cameras.

“It’s a new deal,” he said. “It’s a new thing for me, but I think we had a lot of fun doing it.”

I Love Kellie Pickler premieres Thursday (Nov. 5) at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CMT.
