CMT is dialing up the drama for its upcoming year with a brand new, unscripted television show, Racing Wives.
Picked up for eight, hour-long episodes, the series will feature a group of women married to world famous race car drivers. The show will give a behind-the-scenes look at the glitzy lives these ladies lead in Lake Norman, North Carolina.
The cast will feature sisters-in-law Ashley and Samantha Busch, married to Kurt and Kyle Busch, as well as Austin Dillon’s wife and former cheerleader Whitney Ward Dillon. Also appearing in the show is Amber Balcaen, an aspiring NASCAR driver who left everything behind in Canada, including her boyfriend, to pursue her dream of racing.
In addition to its new programming, CMT will bring back its docuseries, Music City, for a second season.
The ten-episode season will feature many of the familiar faces from season one, as well as a slew of new ones. Returning to the young cast will be rising musician Kerry, his wife Rachyl, personal trainer Jackson, his cousin, pageant queen Alexandra and musicians Jessica and Alisa. Joining the cast will be Rachyl and Kerry’s old friend Jeremiah, Kerry’s new manager Tori, Alexandra’s friend Molly and Jackson’s childhood friend Stephen.
Both Racing Wives and Music City will premiere on the network early 2019.
