NASHVILLE - December 12, 2012 - CMT is celebrating a new year with big premieres beginning Saturday, January 26 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT when season three of MY BIG REDNECK VACATION debuts, followed by the series premiere of GUNTUCKY at 10:00 p.m., ET/PT.
The Clampets have wreaked havoc on the Hamptons, befriended the British and now they're traveling across the United States to spread some all-American, redneck love in this all-new season of MY BIG REDNECK VACATION. Tom Arnold returns as host of the hit series, following the family on their cross-country road trip as they journey to new places including Miami's South Beach, Washington, D.C., Mount Rushmore in South Dakota, a dude ranch in Colorado, Area 51 in Nevada, a Native American Indian reservation in the Grand Canyon and more. The family explores new cultures and values throughout the 13-episode season, leaving their redneck stamp on each postcard destination along the way. New episodes of MY BIG REDNECK VACATION will premiere weekly at 9:00 p.m. - 10:00 p.m., ET/PT.
The new 10-episode series GUNTUCKY follows the three generations of the Sumner family who run Knob Creek Gun Range, their family owned business in Knob Creek, Ky. At Knob Creek Gun Range, it's up to the Sumner family to keep things running smoothly as customers use, try out, purchase and sell weapons across a broad spectrum of firearms - from cannons to machine guns. The family will also create shooting scenarios for their guests, hunting down rare and hard to find firearms for anything from a Civil War reenactment to a movie-style mobster scene. Things get crazy when customers get to blow up whatever they can physically bring to the range. Two new half-hour episodes of GUNTUCKY will premiere weekly at 10:00 p.m. and 10:30 p.m., ET/PT.
