Obama will guest star as herself alongside American Idol's Kellie Pickler in an episode titled "All or Nothing With Me," set to air on May 7th. The episode will find Rayna James (Connie Britton) enlisting the First Lady and Pickler to help host a charity concert at Fort Campbell for Luke Wheeler (Will Chase) after learning that Luke was injured in Afghanistan. The episode will be the second-to-last of the season.

Michelle Obama and Jill Biden will be visiting Fort Campbell on Wednesday to mark the third anniversary of Joining Forces, their initiative to support military families. The First Lady will address a jobs career fair for service members, veterans and their spouses at the army base, and her Nashville appearance will also be tied to Joining Forces.

The Nashville episode will be Obama's second big TV cameo this spring. On April 24th, she'll meet Amy Poehler's Leslie Knope in the season finale of NBC's Parks and Recreation.
