I Love Kellie Pickler and Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making The Team New Seasons Premiere Aug. 25

Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge Picked Up for a New Season

Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making The Team and I Love Kellie Pickler premieres Aug. 25, 2016, at 9 p.m. and 10 p.m. ET/PT respectively. And, get this — in addition, the award-winning Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge has been picked up for a new season that will premiere later this year.

On the heels of a successful first season, CMT will premiere a new season of I Love Kellie Pickler Aug. 25 at 10 p.m. ET/PT. The docu-comedy follows the country music star and personality as she navigates her madcap relationships with friends, family and the unpredictability of couplehood alongside husband, Kyle Jacobs, her complete opposite.

This season fans will be introduced to Kellie and Kyle’s family; follow the couple as they navigate some once-in-a lifetime situations including a must-see visit to Japan and go behind the scenes as they prepare for their appearance on “Celebrity Family Feud.” Kellie will also attempt various occupations including re-living her first job as a Sonic waitress, as well as becoming an Uber driver for charity…despite her lack of reputable driving skills and inability to follow directions.

After notching its highest rated season to date, CMT’s longest running original non-music series, Dallas Cowboy Cheerleaders: Making The Team, returns for its eleventh season on Aug. 25 at 9 p.m. ET/PT, immediately preceding “I Love Kellie Pickler.” The series will follow a new group of hopefuls who compete to fulfill their lifelong dream of landing a highly coveted spot on the elite Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders squad. Melissa Rycroft returns to mentor the new recruits, while Kellie Pickler makes a surprise visit to Training Camp to learn some moves and share insight into how she handles being in the spotlight.

Fellow Texan and Grammy Award-winner Kacey Musgraves will also stop by to talk to the girls about staying true to themselves, and share her stand-out picks to make the team. This season features a professional Japanese cheerleader who will battle a language barrier, a single mother who wants to prove to her six year old daughter that it’s never too late to follow your dreams, as well as several “comeback” girls who finally make it into training camp after years of unsuccessful tryouts.

Also, Steve Austin’s Broken Skull Challenge, the most physically demanding competition series on TV, has been picked up for a new season to premiere later this year. Stay tuned for more on the show.
