I love Kellie Pickler. I’m not talking about the show – I actually love Kellie Pickler! Then again, we all do.

Kellie appeared this week on NBC’s Today show to discuss the upcoming season of I Love Kellie Pickler and the daytime talk show she’s working on with Faith Hill.

“I’m just pinching myself every day; she’s just so wonderful, Kellie says about Faith. “And we’re so exited about the show. We get to shine a light on small businesses [and] people with great ideas and help their products come to life. It’s all positive and fun.”

Not much is known about the show, which is expected to debut this fall. Faith is the executive producer, and Kellie will co-host with New York-based journalist Ben Aaron.

“We will bring a little bit of Southern charm and inspiration to our viewers, alongside insights from top tastemakers and experts in many areas,” Faith offered earlier this year in a statement. “Kellie is very much Southern while Ben is everything New York – complete opposites but together their chemistry is magic and our viewers are going to love them.”

Back on the set of Today, Kellie offered a hilarious lesson in Southern accents to visiting co-host and Londoner Keir Simmons, who returned the favor. Watch the back and forth below.
