Those tuning into the series finale of “Party Down South” on CMT will get a special treat! The Country Music Television network is set to debut the first-look of Billy Ray Cyrus and Joey Lauren Adams new series, “Still The King” on Thursday, April 7 at 9 pm ET/PT. Fans can expect a special two-minute introductory piece to the series premiere after Thursday’s finale episode.
The comedy series follows Cyrus as Vernon Brown, AKA “Burnin’ Vernon,” a scandal-ridden washed up one-hit wonder who is kicked out of country music, only to emerge 20 years later as the second best Elvis impersonator. After crashing into an old country church outside of Nashville during a drunken bender, he is sentenced to return and perform community service. Along the way, he pretends to be the congregation’s new minister and discovers he has a 15-year-old daughter he’s never met.
“Still The King” also stars Madison Iseman (“Laid in America” and Nickelodeon’s “Henry Danger”) Lacey Chabert (“Mean Girls” and “Party of Five”), Leslie David Baker (“The Office”), Kevin Farley (“Eight Crazy Nights” and “The Waterboy”), Travis Nicholson and Jon Sewell.
“Still The King” is produced by HIDEOUT PICTURES with Billy Ray Cyrus serving as executive producer and writer. Shannon Houchins, Potsy Ponciroli and Travis Nicholson also executive produce. Julia Silverton and Jayson Dinsmore executive produce for CMT.
You can catch the premiere of “Still The King” airing this summer on Sunday, June 12 at 9 pm ET/PT.
