What parents need to know
Parents need to know that Country Ever After is a family-friendly, upbeat reality series featuring YouTube country music sensation Coffey Anderson, and his wife and kids. The primary themes are on family, faith, and their individual careers, but some episodes focus on Criscilla Anderson's battle against cancer (and feature her receiving chemo), which some viewers may find upsetting. There’s some silly innuendo, some wine drinking over meals, and logos for local venues are sometimes prominently visible. The overall series is a promotional vehicle for Coffey’s music and career.

What's the story?
COUNTRY EVER AFTER is a Netflix reality series starring country artist Coffey Anderson and his wife, hip-hop dancer Criscilla, as they juggle their performance careers with their family life. The multiracial Christian couple and their family live in Los Angeles to accommodate their careers. But Coffey never lets go of his Texan roots, and Criscilla, who is originally from Las Vegas, fully embraces her urban background. They may have their differences, but the biggest challenge they face is Criscilla’s battle against stage III colon cancer. Together, they rely on their family bond and their faith to get them through the tough times and to live life to the fullest.
Is it any good?
This feel-good series features country singer Coffey Anderson -- who single-handedly used YouTube to build a career -- and his wife raising their family while dealing with some tough challenges. But the overall series is designed to be positive, and despite their difficulties, is nearly always upbeat.
The couple doesn’t proselytize, but they openly talk about their Christian faith and how it guides them. They are also shown participating in testimony, and other church-related events. Meanwhile, Coffey also talks a lot about the special relationship he has with his fans, and discusses how he reaches out to them. Some viewers may not find this particularly original or entertaining, but if you enjoy uplifting reality shows, Country Ever After will do the trick.
