WATCH: Billy Ray Cyrus Plays a Washed Up, One-Hit Wonder in First Still the King Trailer
The star's CMT series premieres in June
Billy Ray Cyrus is ready to prove he’s still the king.
The country star plays a washed-up, one-hit wonder (who also happens to be an Elvis impersonator) on CMT’s upcoming comedy Still the King – and PEOPLE has the exclusive trailer.
Cyrus’ character, Vernon Brownmule, reconnects with a woman he had a fling with (Joey Lauren Adam) and learns they are parents to a 15-year-old daughter (Madison Iseman). The daughter (understandably) wants nothing to do with her dad, who is more known for hard-partying than his parenting skills.
Vernon’s plans to spend time with his daughter hit a speed bump when he realizes he owes quite a bit in child support.
On a side note, he’s also been sentenced to be a church handyman after drunkenly running into its sign and being sent to jail. How will he ever come up with the child support?
Then, a miracle! He lands a job … as the church’s minister, whom he is impersonating.
Still the King premiers Sunday, June 12 on CMT at 9 p.m. ET.
