‘My Kind of Country,’ a new eight-episode country music competition show filmed in Nashville and produced by Reese Witherspoon and Kacey Musgraves, is set to kick off on March 24 on Apple TV+. Similar to most talent competition shows, ‘My Kind of Country’ will feature a judge-based approach courtesy of country artists Jimmie Allen, Mickey Guyton, and Orville Peck, who will participate as ‘talent scouts tasked with filling a roster of rising country artists from around the globe for the ultimate musical showcase.’ Witherspoon and Musgraves will also be featured in the series.
A press release says that the show will be “a fresh take on a competition series, breaking down barriers in country music by providing an extraordinary opportunity to diverse and innovative artists from around the world.” The winner at the end of ‘My Kind of Country’ will receive “a life-changing prize from Apple Music, receiving unprecedented support and exposure on the platform,” according to the release.
Guyton shared in a post on Instagram: “The beauty of country music is that it can sound like so many different things and have so many different influences. I have a passion for sharing and discovering new voices and couldn’t be more excited to be a part of the new @AppleTVPlus series #MyKindOfCountry.”
