MY BIG REDNECK WEDDING (episode 5) - PREMIERE!
CMT gives a whole new meaning to "for better or for worse" in the new eight-episode series MY BIG REDNECK WEDDING. After scouring the country to find the most down-home country couples, CMT documents their journey down the aisle, as outrageous and over-the-top as it might be, in this new series. Each episode, hosted by Tom Arnold, features a different "redneck" wedding, each with its own rustic eccentricities, whether it is a four-legged best man, a romantic beer can canopy, a celebratory shotgun salute or a reception filled with mattress surfing and mud wrestling. This week�s episode features John and Gail, two newspaper delivery carriers, who are planning a redneck bash on the eastern shores of Maryland. In addition to an archway constructed out of beer cans, newspapers being used as tablecloths, and a good old-fashioned mechanical bull at the reception, John and Gail are going to have chickens released after the two say "I do" instead of the more traditional dove release. John's mom, whom they live with, isn't thrilled when she finds out the wedding is taking place in a flea market/bar/convenience/gas station. And when Gail's wedding dress she ordered on-line comes in twenty sizes too small, it will come down to the wire as the couple tries to tie up all the loose ends. One thing is for sure; this wedding will be headline news worthy! Premieres Friday, February 8 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT
