(from CMT's press release, April 2014) Dark-fired tobacco is one of the nation's oldest and richest cash crops, and notoriously precarious. The new five-episode series TOBACCO WARS takes an unfiltered look inside the lives of fourth and fifth generation Adairville, Ky. farmers who bet everything they have on the high-stakes dark fire industry, premiering Saturday, April 19 at 10:00-11:00 p.m., ET/PT on CMT. In tobacco country, carefully guarded farming know-how and family traditions are passed down - and freedom is as essential as the air they breathe. It's a high-stress world, but these folks blow off steam with ease, living their country life to the fullest with endless wagering and outrageous country-boy hijinks.
