People.com reports that the podcast "follows the story of an aspiring young female songwriter and her pursuits to make a name for herself in the music industry."

Miranda said, “I built a career telling stories, specifically through music. I was drawn to a new form of storytelling with podcasts, which I have never done before. The main character, played by Scarlett Burke, and her challenges as an aspiring singer/songwriter are ones that I can relate to firsthand, which really captivated my attention.”

Miranda will play herself in the podcast, alongside a star-studded cast that includes Dennis Quaid, Billy Bob Thornton, Bobby Bones, Lindsay Ell and Craig Robinson. The podcast will also feature original music from Miranda, Scarlett, Lindsay and Nicolle Galyon.
