CMT FOLLOWS COUNTRY COUPLES DOWN THE AISLE IN THE NEW SERIES "MY BIG REDNECK WEDDING"
Hosted by Tom Arnold, MY BIG REDNECK WEDDING premieres January 11
NASHVILLE � December 20, 2007 � CMT gives a whole new meaning to "for better or for worse" in the new eight-episode series MY BIG REDNECK WEDDING premiering Friday, January 11 at 9:30 to 10:00 p.m., ET/PT.
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, will feature 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.
MY BIG REDNECK WEDDING is produced by Pink Sneakers Productions. Bob Kusbit and Lewis Bogach serve as executive producers for CMT.
