CMT ADDS AUSTIN SWIFT, ARDEN MYRIN AND NATALIE DREYFUSS TO "STILL THE KING"

Hit Comedy Starring Billy Ray Cyrus and Joey Lauren Adams Returns With New Episodes This Summer

Nashville, March 8, 2017 - CMT today announced that Austin Swift, Arden Myrin and Natalie Dreyfuss will appear in season two of the hit comedy, "Still The King," starring Billy Ray Cyrus, Joey Lauren Adams and Madison Iseman premiering this summer.

Swift guest stars as Tyler, the manager of Nashville's premier music venue, The Bluebird Café, while Myrin and Dreyfuss join the series in recurring roles. Myrin plays Kaitlynn, a single mother who manages Betty's - the local bar where Debbie (Joey Lauren Adams) works. Dreyfuss plays Leia, Walt's (Travis Nicholson) equally-as-quirky love interest who just so happens to be dating Walt's arch nemesis, Reggie (Jerry Trainor).

The first season of "Still The King" attracted an average of nearly 3 million fans each week. The comedy is part of CMT's hit scripted lineup which includes "Nashville" and "Sun Records," both which recently attracted more than six million viewers to notch the most watched night of CMT originals in the channel's history. The successful premieres come on the heels of overall ratings growth. Original premieres on CMT are pacing up 46% among A 18-49 and 73% among W 18-49 versus year ago. Total day ratings are up 27% with A 18-49 and 31% with W 18-49.

When season two of "Still The King" returns, Vernon (Billy Ray Cyrus) is fresh out of jail and determined to reclaim his position as a country music superstar while being present in the lives of Charlotte (Madison Iseman) and Debbie (Adams). Faced with the possibility of being a father to Debbie's unborn child, Vernon must balance his desires for fame and family.

Additional casting for season two will be announced at a later date.

Austin Swift is building his career one role at a time. In Ben Affleck's Prohibition-era drama "Live By Night," Swift appears as Mayweather - an evangelist under the spell of an alluring preacher played by Elle Fanning. Swift then stars in "Cover Versions," a "Rashomon"-inspired mystery about four band members trying to piece together what happened during a murderous night of sex, drugs and chaos at a music festival in the desert; Sony Pictures Worldwide will distribute in 2017. Swift is a 2015 graduate of Notre Dame's celebrated Department of Film, Television and Theater where he worked with "Hamilton" associate director Patrick Vassel on a production of "Six Characters in Search of an Author." Shortly after graduation, Swift found himself on set in Dublin, Ireland where he acted alongside Pierce Brosnan in the international thriller, "I.T.," for director John Moore ("A Good Day to Die Hard"). Swift, who splits his time between New York and Los Angeles, is represented by UTA, Mosaic and Gang, Tyre, Ramer and Brown.

Arden Myrin has been recurring on Showtime's "Shameless" this season playing William H. Macy's new love interest. Additionally, she most recently starred in the world premiere of Steve Martin's new play "Meteor Shower" at The Longwarf Theatre. In her recurring roles on CMT's "Still The King," Myrin plays Kaitlynn, a self-sufficient single mother and manager and part owner of the local bar. As Debbie's (Joey Lauren Adams) best friend, Kaitlynn is sometimes the only person Debbie can lean on, taking on the role of sister or therapist, ready to dispense honest, if brutal, relationship advice. Myrin is represented by Innovative Artists and LINK Entertainment.

Natalie Dreyfuss was most recently cast as a series regular in the "Brown Girls" pilot for Freeform as Stella and also in a heavy recurring role as Leia, Walt's new lover, on CMT's "Still The King." Additionally, Natalie will be seen guest starring on Freeform's upcoming "Baby Daddy" season 6 premiere on March 13th. Natalie has an extensive television resume, previously recurring on CW's " The Originals and ABC Family's "The Secret Life of the American Teenager." She is represented by Innovative Artists and MC Talent Management.

"Still The King" is produced by HIDEOUT PICTURES with Billy Ray Cyrus serving as executive producer. Shannon Houchins, Potsy Ponciroli and Travis Nicholson also executive produce. Shaleen Desai and Jayson Dinsmore executive produce for CMT.
