LACEY CHABERT, LESLIE DAVID BAKER, KEVIN FARLEY, MADISON ISEMAN AND MORE TO JOIN MAIN AND RECURRING CAST FOR CMT'S "STILL THE KING"

Forthcoming Scripted Comedy Starring Billy Ray Cyrus and Joey Lauren Adams to Premiere Next Year

Nashville, November 19, 2015 - CMT today announced Lacey Chabert ("Mean Girls" and "Party of Five"), Leslie David Baker ("The Office"), Kevin Farley ("Eight Crazy Nights" and "The Waterboy") and Jon Sewell ("Super Zeroes") as recurring cast members alongside main cast members Madison Iseman ("Laid in America" and Nickelodeon's "Henry Danger") and Travis Nicholson ("Super Zeroes" and "Listening") in its forthcoming single camera scripted comedy "Still The King," starring Billy Ray Cyrus and Joey Lauren Adams.

"Still The King" features Cyrus as Vernon Brownmule, AKA "Burnin' Vernon," a scandal-ridden, washed-up, one-hit-wonder who was kicked out of country music, only to emerge 20 years later as the second best Elvis impersonator around. After crashing into an old country church sign during a drunken bender, he is arrested and sentenced to return and serve as the church's handyman as part of his parole. Along the way he pretends to be the congregation's new minister and re-connects with a former one-night-stand (Joey Lauren Adams), when he learns he has a 15-year-old daughter he's never met.

The main and recurring cast of "Still The King" includes:

Travis Nicholson as Walt, whose father played with Vernon during his heyday, and who agrees to help Vernon con the church congregation. Nicholson is represented by Rosen Law Group.

Lacey Chabert as Laura Beth (recurring),the head of the church boosters, who considers it her personal responsibility to guide the congregation's new preacher (Vernon). Chabert is represented by Thruline Entertainment and Innovative Artists.
