NEW YORK (AP) — Billy Ray Cyrus was walking his dog during a tour stop when he was inspired to write a TV show. Cyrus says he was on the Gulf Coast and saw a church in the distance, and he was thinking about how Elvis Presley performed around there at the start of his career. Cyrus started writing down ideas and he came up with the character Vernon Brown, a one-hit wonder country singer who became an Elvis impersonator and later pretends to be a minister at a country church. The comedy, “Still the King,” will premiere on CMT early next year.
