Savannah Little of Pikeville, Julia Knight of Lexington, Celeste Turner of Prestonsburg and Tyra Short of Knott County are among the seven young singers the show follows as they travel to Nashville to try to make it in country music.

Savannah is one of the four girls on whom the show focuses; Julia, Celeste and Tyra are supporting characters, according to press materials from Lifetime.

"Chasing Nashville delves into the real lives of these four young singers as they embark on the uncertain path thousands of others have sought for the rare chance at securing a recording contract," according to a news release from Lifetime.

The singers' families will also be featured.

"It's like Dance Moms," said Tyra's mother, Katrina Short, referencing the popular reality show, also on Lifetime.
