A&E NETWORK PREMIERES NEW ORIGINAL SERIES "BIG SMO"

SERIES FOLLOWS THE PROFESSIONAL AND PERSONAL LIFE OF MAGNETIC COUNTRY RAPPER ON HIS RISE TO FAME

BRAND NEW ALBUM KUNTRY LIVIN' TO BE RELEASED JUNE 3

NEW YORK, NY - May 13, 2014 - A&E Network premieres "Big Smo," a new original real life series following larger-than-life country rapper, Big Smo, as he takes his unique style of music to new heights with the support of lifelong friends, loyal fans and most importantly, his beloved family."Big Smo" premieres Wednesday, June 11 at 10:30 PM ET/PT.

From the small town of Unionville, Tennessee, Big Smo is a country boy turned charismatic country rapper (blending country music, Southern rock and hip-hop) who just signed to Warner Bros. Records. While music is Smo's lifelong passion, he's a family man first and foremost.Surrounded by a lively extended entourage including his mother, childhood buddies, long-time girlfriend and two young daughters, Smo is driven to stay grounded and succeed in a business known for hard living.

As he gears up to debut his first major-label album , Kuntry Livin', Smo is continuously challenged to balance the tireless life of a touring musician with the demands of his family responsibilities.When not out on the road, Smo's on his farm in Unionville in the role he holds most dear, that of a good and present father to his daughters and supportive partner to Whitney, the love of his life.

Throughout the season, Smo celebrates milestones in both his professional and personal life, such as getting a brand new tour bus, taking his music to radio and working with the incomparable Darius Rucker.And at home, as Smo watches his daughter's blossom before his eyes he begins to realize that it may be time for him and Whitney to take their relationship to the next level. Through it all, Smo's determination, die-hard fans (known affectionately as his Kinfoke) and deep Southern family roots keep him going on his wild ride to fame.

"Big Smo" is produced by Brownstone Entertainment for A&E Network. Executive producers for Brownstone Entertainment are Drew Brown and Bob Gillan.Dan Nelson and Pete DeLasho also serve as executive producers and Nicco Ardin is co-executive producer.Executive producers for A&E Network are Drew Tappon, Shelly Tatro, Dave Mace and Evan Lerner.
