‘I Love Kellie Pickler’ Renewed for Second Season
Fans do, indeed, love Kellie Pickler -- so much, in fact, that her reality show has been renewed for a second season.
CMT has announced that I Love Kellie Pickler will be back for Season 2, premiering in August. The show, which is produced by Ryan Seacrest and premiered in November, earned the network its highest-rated series premiere since 2012 and is its highest-rated show among female viewers since 2008.
I Love Kellie Pickler gives fans a personal look at what life, marriage and love looks like in the music industry. Starring Pickler and her husband, Kyle Jacobs, the show focuses more on her relationships than her music.
“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 says. “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.”
She adds, "We laugh so much. We have Redneck Supper Club dinner parties at our house and grill out. I was a huge fan of Lucille Ball and her funny shenanigans with Ethel that poor Ricky would have to get her out of. We want to play off that type of comedy — lighthearted but natural situations that I get into — and marry that with a Friends-type feel.”
Season 2 of I Love Kellie Pickler is among a plethora of original programming recently ordered by CMT. According to the network's president, Brian Philips, CMT is doubling its original programming this year.
In October, Pickler will be inducted into the North Carolina Music Hall of Fame.
