Kellie Pickler has landed her own reality show.

The country singer is not new to reality television. She began her career on American Idol and soon found herself showing off her dancing skills in Dancing With the Stars. So, it's not surprising that Pickler would agree to a new CMT reality show about her marriage to songwriter-producer Kyle Jacobs.

What may be surprising is the show, I Love Kellie Pickler, is being touted as a drama-free, family friendly romp.

“You definitely have to set boundaries from the start with anything you do,” Pickler said of her new show. ”And keep things sacred for you and your marriage.”

Produced by Ryan Seacrest, the 13-episode series will premiere this Thursday at 10 p.m.

Unlike many other reality shows — anything Kardashian comes to mind — the series will not feature a designer lifestyle, nor will it feature the raucous, drunken carousing of CMT’s signature reality show, Party Down South.

Instead, Kellie Pickler and her husband, will offer fans a peek at their wholesome, family-oreinted lifestyle.

“We want to keep it light and positive,” Pickler told The Associated Press. “There’s enough darkness out in the world. And there’s enough negativity on television.”

“There’s no drama crazy,” Jacobs concurred, who has been married to Pickler for five years.

“No,” Pickler said. “Definitely not. There are no cat fights. We don’t have cats. … He’s allergic.”

The series follows the couple through a busy summer touring season, taking trips with friends and renewing their vows.

“People know what we do in front of the curtain,” Kellie Pickler said. “They know what we do onstage or what he does in the studio. This is about who we are when we clock out.”
