As reported by People, the eight-episode first season of television producer Adam DiVello's new show will focus on young, up-and-coming musicians in Nashville as they strive for success in the music industry while juggling the commitments, friendships and relationships of their personal lives.

"Music has always played a huge role in the storytelling process of my past series," DiVello says of the upcoming reality program, "and with Music City, we'll take that element to another level, as we document the real-life struggles, heartaches, and drama of those chasing their dreams of stardom."

"Nashville is such an exciting city," he adds, "and I can't wait to share with the world the stories of this incredibly talented cast we've put together."
