(Yahoo!) - What do you get when you mix two reallygood-looking rising stars--one in the world of football, one in country music--and an upcoming wedding? Why, a reality show, of course!

Denver Broncos wide receiver Eric Decker and country/pop singer Jessie James have announced that their new series, Love and Other Contact Sports: Eric and Jessie, will debut this summer.

The show promises to "chronicle the sexy young couple’s road to the altar as they juggle careers, relationships, family and more," and reportedly has the seal of approval from Broncos president John Elway, who doesn't seem to be concerned about the fact that pro athletes historically haven't juggled sports and reality TV too well (Lamar Odom, anyone?).

Decker and James, who met through a friend, announced their engagement last April. Since then, they've been seen around town at events commemorating their respective fields, including ESPN-sponsored parties and country music awards shows.

Although she's made strides in Nashville, James is unquestionably lesser known at large than her ballplaying fiance, holding a number of connections in the celeb world but flying under the radar for the most part in terms of public recognition. The brunette beauty has worked with the likes of Katy Perry and Kara DioGuardi--both of whom contributed songwriting credits to her 2009 debut album--and earned enthusiastic musical praise from celeb gossip extraordinare Perez Hilton.
