Self-made Multimillionaires Rooster McConaughey and Butch Gilliam are Takin' Care of Business West Texas Style

ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. - May 24, 2016 - CNBC's "West Texas Investors Club" returns Tuesday, June 7th at 10PM ET/PT with bigger deals, higher stakes and a whole lot more business. Set deep in the heart of Texas, the 10 original hour-long episodes feature self-made multimillionaires- Rooster McConaughey and Butch Gilliam who have chosen to pass on their success by investing in promising entrepreneurs - but only on their turf and their terms.

Along with their close friend and confidante Gil Prather, Rooster and Butch invite a new batch of ambitious entrepreneurs from across the country to come down to Midland, Texas and make their case. These folks know that they're getting a once-in-a-lifetime chance to secure an investment - but what they don't know, is that clever products and beautiful balance sheets will only get you so far with these down-home investors. Rooster and Butch won't make a deal until they've peered into your heart and soul - and taken the true measure of your character.

In the Tuesday, June 7th episode, a young entrepreneur pitches Butch and Rooster an electronic beer tap that promises to reduce keg waste. The beer-loving investors have high hopes, but soon find that this youngster may not be everything he says he is. Later, two moms from Utah show off their practical zip-up bedding.
