Faith Hill, Dolly Parton Make Surprise Cameos on ‘Pickler & Ben’ Premiere [Watch]
Faith Hill and Dolly Parton made Kellie Pickler and Ben Aaron's first day on the job of their new talk show, Pickler & Ben, extra special when they made a surprise appearance on the show.
Hill, who produces the program, which airs on HSN, called into the live taping from the control room to offer the hosts a vote of confidence. "You guys are doing great. You're the reason we're doing this show," the superstar says, looking like a pro in a headset as she points at the camera to the two hosts. "You make this show run. We love ya'll."

Pickler and Aaron couldn't be more thankful for Hill's contributions, including serving as designer of the sleek, farmhouse style set. "This is Faith," Pickler reveals, gesturing to the set. "This is amazing."
Parton also offered the hosts a special treat when she surprised them on set during the series premiere to congratulate them on the new venture. As if her presence wasn't surprise enough, the country icon also brought the starstruck duo cupcakes and other celebratory gifts.
Hill partnered with Jason Owen, CEO of Sandbox Entertainment President, and Happy Street Entertainment co-founder Lisa Erspamer to create the talk show, which tapes in front of a live studio audience in Nashville. The series is set to featured a variety of guests from celebrities to DIY experts. This is the second TV venture for Pickler, who stars in her own reality show alongside husband Kyle Jacobs, CMT's I Love Kellie Pickler.
