Executive-producing the series along with Bryan is NFL legend Peyton Manning. Produced by Manning’s Omaha Productions, along with Walt Disney Television Alternative, and NFL Films, It’s All Country will also highlight “the cultural impact and memorable performers and performances that make country music an American and growing global sensation.”

The series also marks the 100 anniversary of the recording of what is considered to be the first country music song, “Little Log Cabin in the Lane,” released by Fiddlin’ John Carson on Okeh Records in June of 1923.

Bryan and Manning will also team up again for the 2023 CMA Awards, airing live from Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee on ABC on Wednesday (November 8). The National Football League Hall of Famer and country artist will return as co-hosts of the awards ceremony for the second, consecutive year.

Manning is only the second non-country music performer to host the CMAs within the history of the award show. In 1968, Roy Rogers’ wife Dale Evans co-hosted the show with him. Hosting the 56th annual CMAs with Bryan helped take the awards show to a three-year audience high with 9.7 million viewers watching.

The 2022 CMAs also became the No. 1 most social TV program and the No. 1 most social entertainment program season-to-date with the show earning 3.7 million social interactions and 5.3 million video views.

It’s All Country joins the expanding collection of Hulu series, including the recent Brooke Shields documentary Pretty Baby, Victoria’s Secret: Angels and Demons, God Forbid: The Sex Scandal That Brought Down a Dynasty, and Stolen Youth: Inside the Cult at Sarah Lawrence.
