The show will focus on McEntire, who will play a single mom that divorces her rock-star husband after he has an affair. The family moves from Nashville to Malibu in an attempt for McEntire’s character to start her own singing career and create a better life for her kids. ABC has yet to announce a timeslot for Malibu Country.
