The National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS) announced that daytime talk show “Pickler & Ben” has been nominated for two Daytime Emmy Awards.

Hosts Kellie Pickler and Ben Aaron are nominated for Outstanding Informative Talk Show Hosts, and guest Ben Rector’s performance of “Old Friends” has been nominated for Outstanding Musical Performance in a Daytime Program. The 46th Annual Daytime Emmy Awards will be held at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium on Sunday, May 5, 2019.

“We are so grateful to be nominated in this category, and Ben and I couldn’t do this without the amazing Pickler & Ben family we get to work with every day,” said Kellie Pickler. Ben Aaron added, “Last year I said we weren’t going to beat Steve Harvey, and I was right. I’m not going to make any predictions this year.”

“The entire team here at Pickler & Ben are so happy our awesome hosts, Kellie Pickler and Ben Aaron have been nominated once again,” said Executive Producer and Happy Street Entertainment Co-Founder Lisa Erspamer. “They are definitely not your typical talk show hosts which is what makes coming to work such an unexpected and delightfully wild ride every day. Bring it home this year P&B! And congrats to our friend, the fabulous Ben Rector. Your performance rocked.”

Hosted by Kellie Pickler and Ben Aaron, and recorded in front of a live studio audience in Nashville, “Pickler & Ben” features the best in lifestyle and entertainment. The show highlights feel-good stories featuring guests from across the country; zany comedic bits where Kellie and Ben demonstrate that they are “all-in” on entertaining the audience – from goat yoga to fencing lessons; and cooking segments with celebrity chefs including Cat Cora, Carla Hall, Richard Blais, Gail Simmons, Duff Goldman and Sunny Anderson. Celebrity guests have included Dolly Parton, Vince Gill, Faith Hill, Tim McGraw, Little Big Town, Molly Sims, Luke Bryan, Christian Siriano, Darius Rucker, Reba McEntire, Kenny Rogers, Yolanda Hadid, Kelly Osbourne, Jillian Michaels, Kristin Cavallari, Ty Pennington, Jewel and Idina Menzel.
