Steve Harvey had fiery country artist and star of CMT’s I Love Kellie Pickler, return Tuesday, Oct. 11 to recap having “one of his favorite contestants” on Family Feud and discuss a favorite app and most recent tattoo celebrating her and her husband, Kyle Jacobs’ marriage.

During the interview, Harvey played the viral clip of Pickler’s appearance on Family Feud, where the country-music charmer was so excited she scared the chatty host speechless, before sitting down with her. After watching the clip from CMT’s I Love Kellie Pickler showing the Platinum-certified “Best Days of Your Life” singer getting a meaningful tattoo —  her wedding date in Roman numerals on her forearm in Jacobs’ handwriting — the bubbly Dancing With The Stars winner explained how she likes the feeling of getting tattoos.

After purposefully calling her Kellie “Pichler” to poke fun at his recent name-announcement mishap, Harvey hilariously segued into discussing the app that helps Kellie and Steve with the pronunciation and definition of new vocabulary. The two larger-than-life personalities took turns taking a stab at different words while the live audience erupted with laughter. The comical talk show host wrapped the interview by calling the southern personality his “favorite guest.”

Don’t miss the Steve Harvey digital extra, Random Questions with Kellie Pickler  where she answers fun questions such as, “Do vegetarians eat animal crackers?”

Catch I Love Kellie Pickler Thursdays at 10:00 / 9:00 p.m. CT on CMT.

“I am so humbled to be in such great company in receipt of this honor from the Department of Defense,” Kellie shared after accepting the distinguished award with her husband Kyle on Wednesday in Washington D.C. “We’ve been so blessed to have a great relationship with the USO which has allowed us to be able to take a little piece of home to our service men and women both overseas and here at home.”

The Department of Defense criteria for the Spirit of Hope Award requires the recipient to have selflessly contributed an extraordinary amount of time, talent or resources to significantly enhance the quality of life of service members and their families serving around the world and epitomize the values of Bob Hope—duty, honor, courage, loyalty, commitment, integrity and selfless dedication.

They explore the town and learn all about Japanese culture, customs and practices. From hedgehog cafes, to navigating the subway, tasting the authentic cuisine and attempting to speak Japanese – Kellie and Kyle have the adventure of a lifetime.

“This show is about laughter and love,” shares Kellie. “It’s all positive and all about our family and friends and our crazy adventures. We just want to be a bright light and make people laugh and feel good.”

I Love Kellie Pickler, produced by Ryan Seacrest Productions, 51 Minds Entertainment, Kellie Pickler and Kyle Jacobs, is currently in its second season and the docu-comedy follows the country music star and personality as she navigates her madcap relationships with friends, family and the unpredictability of couple-hood alongside husband, Kyle Jacobs, her complete opposite.

At the age of 19, she first gained fame as a contestant on the fifth season of “American Idol.” She has gone on to release four critically acclaimed albums, including her Gold-certified debut Small Town Girl as well as 100 Proof, which Rolling Stone named the Best Country Album of 2011.

In spring of 2013, Kellie partnered with dance coach Derek Hough and won the Mirror Ball Trophy on Dancing with the Stars. That same year, she also released her fourth album, The Woman I Am, with Black River Entertainment, which featured three songs co-written by Kellie including the title cut. She voiced the lead character, a sweet potato named Mirabelle, in the Veggie Tales animated movie “Beauty and the Beet” in 2014, and launched her home goods line, Selma Drye by Kellie Pickler, in cooperation with the Opry Stores ( in 2015.

Her CMT series I Love Kellie Pickler, which co-stars her husband, songwriter/producer Kyle Jacobs, debuted in November 2015, propelling the network to its highest premiere with adults since 2012 and women since 2008.

Kellie is an avid supporter of the U.S. military, having completed nine USO Tours thus far. Kellie will also receive the Bob Hope Spirit of Hope Award in Washington, D.C. in honor of her continued work with our servicemen and women. For more information, please visit
