In an upcoming episode of CMT’s I Love Kellie Pickler, singer/actress/dancer Kellie Pickler fulfills her childhood dream of being an exchange student as she and husband Kyle Jacobs travel to Tokyo to live with the Asada family.

“This show is about laughter and love,” said Pickler. “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.”

The new episode of I Love Kellie Pickler airs this Thursday at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
