AMERICA'S HARDWORKING HEROES AND THE VEHICLES THEY DRIVE GET A NEW LEASE ON LIFE WHEN CMT'S "TRICK MY WHAT?" PREMIERES FRIDAY, OCTOBER 7
NASHVILLE - September 26, 2011 - John Schneider learns the ins and outs of some of the toughest jobs in America; then transforms the rusted, busted vehicles of hardworking blue-collar heroes into the pride of their industries when CMT debuts TRICK MY WHAT? on Friday, October 7 at 10:00-11:00 p.m. ET/PT. In each of the nine hour-long episodes, Schneider works shoulder-to-shoulder alongside hardworking men and women as they keep their businesses afloat and put food on the table. In exchange, Schneider and the guys from the Lone Star Speed Shop in Richmond, Texas, will trick out the workers' larger-than-life machines.
The first episode of TRICK MY WHAT? features Paul Palmer, a logger and single dad of three boys from Batson, Texas. His logging skidder has seen better days, and won't even start without the help of three people working together.
