Amy Sheppard will appear in an episode of Play School on ABC Kids.

In a series of images posted to her Instagram page, the Nothing But Wild singer is shown on a farmyard set, complete with barn, picket fence, big trees and hay bales. Donning a straw hat, patchwork denim overalls, pink sneakers and coral plaid shirt, Sheppard is joined by toys Humpty, Jemima and Little Ted.

Keen eyes will also see Daisy the cow and Henny Penny the chatty chicken in the background.

The iconic children’s series began in July 1966 and is the longest-running children’s show in Australia. It was admitted into the Logies’ Hall of Fame in 2006, the program’s 40th anniversary year, in recognition of the strong influence the show has had on at least three generations of Australian children. It is one of only five Australian television programs to be inducted.

Fellow country artists Fanny Lumsden and Amber Lawrence were on the show in 2020, while the series has also seen the likes of Guy Sebastian, Delta Goodrem, Kate Miller-Heidke, Hamish & Andy, Molly Meldrum, Magda Szubanski, Dave Hughes and many more visit the Play School set.

Inspired by her country music upbringings, listening to the likes of The Chicks, Shania Twain, Faith Hill and LeAnn Rimes, Sheppard decided to packed up her pop stylings and fused them with country influences for her debut solo EP, Nothing But Wild, released on September 16.

She spent the past three years writing and building towards this debut solo release, which features the title track, which peaked at #3 on the Countrytown Hot 50 Country Airplay Chart, and follow-up single, Blue Guitar, which currently sits at #2 after 13 weeks on the chart.

While definitely not her first foray into the genre, previously already a Golden Guitar Award winner for her vocals on Lee Kernaghan’s Spirit of the Anzacs, Amy has previous experience writing and singing with artists like Kasey Chambers and The Wolfe Brothers.

She also appeared in body-image advocate Taryn Brumfitt’s documentary, Embrace: Kids, alongside other celebrities like Celeste Barber, Alex Noble, Jameela Jamil, and Electric Fields.
