HOST TOM ARNOLD CORDIALLY INVITES VIEWERS TO AN ALL-NEW SEASON OF HIT SERIES "MY BIG REDNECK WEDDING" BEGINNING SATURDAY, OCT. 4 ON CMT
Season Premiere Features Lovebird "Siblings" Headed Down the Aisle
NASHVILLE � September 9, 2008 � A whole new season of over-the-top, down-home wedding celebrations abound when MY BIG REDNECK WEDDING returns with host Tom Arnold beginning Saturday, October 4 at 9:00-9:30 p.m., ET/PT. This season, the couples take the term "redneck" to a whole new level with wedding receptions that feature everything from shotgun shell archways to pig chasing to jackass bingo � and a whole lot of mud in between. They may not be conventional but one thing remains the same, these couples love each other and are proud of their redneck status.
The first episode of the second season of MY BIG REDNECK WEDDING features Anna Royal and Jerry "Bo" Granthum of Verbena, Ala., a couple whose non-traditional wedding includes the fact that they are brother and sister (by law, that is). Their patriotic red, white and blue wedding will feature some events that are purely American, including wild mud bog fun complete with monster trucks and stretch limousines.

� Saturday, October 4: Anna Royal & Jerry "Bo" Granthum of Verbena, Ala.
� Saturday, October 11: Jeanne Raines & Phil Stambaugh of Keymar, Md.
