‘Shania Twain’ Gets Her Comeuppance in ‘Still the King’ Clip [Exclusive Video]
Billy Ray Cyrus is back on TV, starring as Vernon Brown (aka "Burnin' Vernon") in the new CMT series Still the King, and The Boot's readers are getting an exclusive first look at this week's new episode. In this (slightly NSFW) scene, Brown's former one-night stand Debbie Lynn Cooke (Joey Lauren Adams) and their daughter Charlotte (Madison Iseman) take on a nemesis to hilarious effect.
Readers can press play above to watch Cooke take aim at Diana von Twang, whose business as a "de-dazzler" is in direct competition with Cooke's business of "re-dazzling" clothing from her booth at a craft fair. Fans will notice that von Twang sports a familiar look: She's dressed like Shania Twain in her "Man! I Feel Like a Woman" music video, which prompts a sassy retort from Cooke.
Cyrus, who is also one of the creators of Still the King, has spent a lot of time on the small screen over the years: The 54-year-old starred in his own series, Doc, as well as on his daughter Miley Cyrus' TV show, Hannah Montana. Cyrus also made guest appearances on several shows, including The Love Boat: The Next Wave, Are We There Yet? and 90210. In addition, Cyrus starred in several movies, such as Mulholland Drive, The Spy Next Door and Sharknado 2: The Second One.
Cyrus recently announced his plans to release a new album, Thin Line, on Blue Cadillac Music on Sept. 9. "Hey Elvis," from the album, is used on Still the King. The show airs on CMT at 9PM ET.
