Reality TV programming is nothing new. Neither are music competition shows. However, Kacey Musgraves and Reese Witherspoon are trying to shake things up. The powerhouse talents come together to executive produce an Apple TV+ Original Series themed around country music. As a highly decorated star within the Musgrave genre and with Witherspoon’s award-winning production background, there is no one better suited for the job.
The competition show titled my kind of country, will scour every corner of the world to find the next big name in country music. Casting such a wide net for potential acts might seem like a daunting task, but Musgraves and Witherspoon feel it’s absolutely necessary given the genre’s long history of not being inclusive. As for the judging panel, recording stars Jimmie Allen, Mickey Guyton and Orville Peck will serve as mentors for the up-and-coming acts on their way to winning a special award from the streaming giant.
In a post shared to her Instagram Stories, Witherspoon gushed about the series, writing, “You all know how much I love country music… so I’ve teamed up with the incredible Kacey Musgraves for a global quest for the… to launch country music’s next big star. ”
Witherspoon continued: “my kind of country is a whole new breed of competitive show coming to Apple TV+ on March 24th. The talent on this show is insane. You should not miss this.”
