The cast also includes Kacie Sheik, Andy Taylor, Ephie Aardema and Adam Cochran. Baldwin replaced the previously announced Amy Spanger.

Here's how Songbird is billed: "Dreams, ambition, love, and heartbreak. Songbird is a striking new show about a fading country star coming home to Nashville. After many years away, Tammy returns to the Honky Tonk that launched her music career to help the son she abandoned launch his own. But with jealousy and self-destruction (along with copious amounts of whiskey) fueling this homecoming, will Tammy’s arrival do more harm than good?"
