Obama, 50, will star as herself on the show May 7, ABC announced. Kellie Pickler is also set to appear in the episode, which finds country music queen Rayna James (Connie Britton) organizing a charity concert at Army base Fort Campbell in Kentucky.
The guest spot marks the latest stop on Obama's TV tour: She's visited the sets of Sesame Street, iCarly, and The Biggest Loser to promote physical fitness and healthful eating for her Let's Move! initiative.

Kellie Pickler has a confession: She hasn't really had the chance to put the 'sin' in Sin City.
"I've never been able to go to Vegas and be a tourist," she tells PEOPLE. "Every time I go, I never get to go and play. I hope to get to do that soon – just go and watch a show."
Hopefully that'll be the case this weekend, when the songstress attends the ACM Awards with husband Kyle Jacobs, who's nominated for single record of the year for producing Lee Brice's "I Drive Your Truck." "I'm a huge fan of the song," she shares. "I remember Kyle playing it for me when he first found that song for Lee, and I was like, 'This is going to be a big song.' So I'll definitely be in his corner [on Sunday]."

The country star performed at the Ballet Ball 2014, which raises money for programs that bring dance classes to local children.
"Kellie did an amazing job performing at Ballet Ball, which benefits Nashville Ballet. It was fun to see dancers bring her songs to life, and she even showed off a few of her own dance moves!" a source tells PEOPLE. "She told the dancers they looked like angels and she has a sincere appreciation for what they can do."

The former American Idol contestant, who has been working with the USO since 2007, and was on a nine-day tour in the Middle East and has been sharing pics of her experience on Twitter.

Everything in country is big, from the hair to the trucks to the personalities. It's no surprise, then, that on country's biggest night, the good times kept rolling even after hosts Carrie Underwood and Brad Paisley delivered their final punch lines at Wednesday's CMA Awards.
So how did Nashville's finest celebrate when they filed out of Bridgestone Arena?
Country heavyweights like Pinnacle Award winner Taylor Swift and Tim McGraw (who both earned accolades for their hit "Highway Don't Care") partied with their industry peers – including James Young, Mike Eli, Jon Jones, Brantley Gilbert, Chris Thompson, Jay DeMarcus, Reid Perry, Neil Perry, Kimberly Perry, Scott Borchetta, Danielle Bradbery, Cassadee Pope, RaeLynn and Laura Bell Bundy – at Big Machine Label Group's CMAs afterparty (pictured above).
