Hill, Pickler join TV talk show
Wednesday, October 14, 2015
– Faith Hill will help oversee a new daytime talk show with Kellie Pickler as one of the hosts, it was announced today.
Hill will be a co-executive producer for the show, teaming up with former "Oprah" co-executive producer and OWN executive Lisa Erspamer, Sandbox Entertainment's Jason Owen and Legendary Television.
Based in Nashville and shot in a modern farmhouse-style home, the show will focus on everyday living and activities. Cooking, gardening, entertaining and home design will be part of the mix.
"This is a woman who has so many talents," said Hill of Pickler. "Kellie is smart, compassionate, funny, quick-witted and has a heart for service - the work she's done with the USO and our service men and women is no secret. She possesses the ability to reach far beyond the camera and into the hearts of people, allowing you to feel immediately connected to her. There was no question in my mind that she should be a big part of this show."
The name of the show will be announced soon.

Somewhere after the release of her sophomore album, however, she started mentioning in interviews that she was ...
Faith Hill's first Christmas album is an uptown affair, rather than any down home celebration. Making this point from the very outset, the opening title cut features a full adult choir and orchestra. Furthermore, Hill is dressed for the ball in a beautiful red gown on the disc's front cover.
The first time Hill steers away from overly philharmonic-ready material, she heads straight for swing town with horns a plenty on both Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town. and Holly Jolly Christmas. ...
