APPLE TV+’s newest television show, My Kind of Country, is on the hunt for the next big country music superstar.
The show’s scouts will each hand-pick a roster of “exceptional up-and-coming artists” to compete against each other in Nashville, Tennessee, for a life-changing prize.

Who is in the cast of My Kind of Country?

He first rose to fame in 2018 following the release of his album Mercury Lane, which includes singles Best Shot and Make Me Want To.
When Allen is not in the studio, he can often be found at the bowling alley, practicing for upcoming tournaments.
“I fell in love with the sport — how fun yet difficult it is; how challenging yet competitive it is,” Allen told PBA.com.
“The cool thing about bowling is you don’t have to be a certain height. You don’t have to be a certain age. You can pick it up at any age and get really good at it and can become a professional.”
Two years after he began bowling competitively, he parted with the Professional Bowlers Association to host The Jimmie Allen PBA Challenge, which he later won with PBA star Sean Rash.

She first rose to fame in 2021 following the release of her song Black Like Me, which was later nominated for a Grammy Award– making her the first Black female artist to be nominated in that category.
“I feel validated. Like, ugh, thank God. Because there was doubt cast upon this project before I released it. So now to see the response, I just feel relieved,” Guyton said of her Grammy nomination during an interview with The New York Times.
“…[Black Like Me] was my story, but it was so many other people’s story. This time it’s all on me. It’s so personal,” she added.
When Guyton is not in the studio, she can often be found at home, spending time with her husband, Grant Savoy.
