Series Premiere Tuesday, February 8 at 9 p.m. ET on HISTORY(R)

January 5, 2011, New York, NY - Larry the Cable Guy believes the United States of America is the greatest country on the face of the earth and he's out to prove it. In this new series, Larry crisscrosses the nation, going totally off the beaten path to find the people, places and things that define this nation's unique history. From panning for gold in the hills of California to leading a cavalry charge in a Civil War reenactment in Virginia, Larry gives history a fun, down-home twist in the new one-hour series ONLY IN AMERICA WITH LARRY THE CABLE GUY, debuting Tuesday, February 8 at 9 p.m. ET on HISTORY.

Each episode uncovers surprising information about America's history from the story of how moonshine-making during Prohibition gave rise to one of America's most celebrated past times - NASCAR racing - to the history of etiquette from Emily Post's heirs in Vermont, complete with a lesson in good manners.

Coast to coast Larry visits cities of all sizes getting an education in its history including, Monowi, NE a town with a population of one and the bustling metropolis of San Francisco, CA and New York, NY.

Throughout this informative and quirky approach to history, Larry prompts one memorable adventure after the next. He finds himself competing in a Mark Twain-style frog race in Calaveras County, CA; crawfishing in Louisiana; logging deep in the Oregon woods; discovering dog sledding in the icy lakes of Minnesota and getting a kick out of Mule Day in Tennessee.

Larry the Cable Guy is a cultural icon. After years of working the comedy circuit he was propelled to superstardom as a member of the Blue Collar Comedy Tour (along with Jeff Foxworthy and Bill Engvall). Ticket sales, merchandising, books, comedy records, and movies earned him a spot on Forbes' Top 100 Celebrity Money-Makers list in 2007.

Craig Piligian and Eddie Rohwedder are Executive Producers for Pilgrim Films & Television. Larry the Cable Guy and J.P. Williams are Executive Producers for Parallel Entertainment.
