CMT PREMIERES NEW SERIES "SWEET HOME ALABAMA" AND "TEXAS WOMEN" ON THURSDAY, JULY 14

Network Orders Eight One Hour Episodes of Each Series

LOS ANGELES - June 16, 2011 - CMT has ordered eight episodes of two new reality shows featuring ambitious young women in the South. SWEET HOME ALABAMA, premiering Thursday, July 14 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT, explores a young women's journey to find Mr. Right among young men from big cities and small towns while TEXAS WOMEN, premiering Thursday, July 14 at 10:00 p.m., ET/PT, takes an exciting peek inside the lives of four young, gorgeous and sassy women working and playing in Fort Worth, Texas.

"TEXAS WOMEN follows the rollercoaster ride of four of the Lonestar State's most endearing and high-spirited women as they blaze their own path on the search for love, happiness and a lot of fun," says Jayson Dinsmore, CMT's Executive Vice President of Development. "SWEET HOME ALABAMA is the ultimate test of big city vs. down-home as a group of city slickers and country boys fight for the heart of a gorgeous Southern Belle on her home turf. CMT's viewers are going to laugh with, cry with and root for these very relatable women as they search for their own slice of the American dream."

Ten "city slickers" and ten "country" guys are vying for the affections of Devin Grissom, a sweet southern girl from Alabama, in the new CMT series, SWEET HOME ALABAMA. In order to win her heart, the bachelors from across the country compete in challenges to win time with the southern beauty. In each one-hour episode, Devin says goodbye to more of her suitors in the hopes of finding her true love and someone her family approves. The eight episode series is produced by Glassman Media ("Three Wishes") with executive producers Andrew Glassman, Grant Julian and Carrie Franklin. Claire McCabe and Jayson Dinsmore are executive producers for CMT.

The four TEXAS WOMEN are strong, capable and in the spirit of Texas, they won't back down, even to each other. The series features the outspoken blonde bombshell, Anna Hunt who is as strong-willed as the bucking bulls she raises as a stock contractor. A woman working in a man's arena, she's learned to use her feminine attributes to her advantage. Ali Dee is an aspiring country music singer and television host for the Dallas Mavericks who's willing to do whatever it takes to make it to the top. She lives with her boyfriend Cory Melton, a champion bull rider, but her career comes first. Hannah Helvey is roommates with Anna, the youngest and the wild child of the group. A trust-fund baby with strong ties to her family, her nickname is "Hurricane Hannah" because she is a force of nature that usually gets what she wants. Brooke Jeter is a professional barrel racer and part-time housewife with a quick tongue and no filter. Being the only married gal in the bunch hasn't slowed her down, she still loves to party. This self proclaimed "True Blue" woman is married to professional Bronc rider, Jason Jeter. Each week the fantastic quartet of gorgeous women juggle their love lives and careers all while maintaining their friendship and proving that being a diva is tougher than riding bareback. TEXAS WOMEN is produced by 3 Ball Entertainment. Executive producing for 3 Ball are JD Roth, Todd Nelson, Dan Snook, Adam Kaloustian and Julia Silverton. Melanie Moreau and Jayson Dinsmore are executive producing for CMT.
