Kellie Pickler is in the middle of developing a new talk show, and one of her heroes, Faith Hill, is serving as the show’s executive producer. Faith won’t be appearing on the show every day, but she is working with Kellie to guide the show’s concept.
Kellie tells Rare Country, “We are still in the early development of the show, but I’m so excited. Faith Hill will be my boss. She’s my boss. That’s kind of neat, right? I’m in great company. We have amazing people working on the show. I’m excited to see where it goes!”
The show will focus on home and garden segments with some cooking thrown in for good measure.
As for working with Faith, Kellie admits she’s been singing a lot of the superstar’s songs in her head while they’re working together. That sexy video for Faith’s big hit, “Breathe,” comes to mind, too.
Says Kellie, “Everybody lays in their bed [and recreates that video]… Everybody’s done that in their fake silk sheets in the desert. Her sheets were real. I’ve got my pleather sheets over here, and I’m trying to recreate the video. Pleather? Leather? It’s 50 shades of crazy over here.”
In all seriousness, Kellie looks up to Faith as a country superstar and business woman.
“First of all, look at her brand that she has built!” Kellie adds. “She has created an empire.”
We’ll keep you posted when Kellie announces a premiere date for her show.
