It’s a BIG week for Country Music Hick Hop’ster Big Smo and #CMchat is very excited to have him booked for a Twitterview on Tuesday June 10 at 6pPT/9PET. In the meantime you can pick up his new album Kuntry Livin’ available June 3 and if you’re at #ChevyCMA Music Fest you can catch him on Friday night at the Bud Light Stage! Check out the review we did for his new album Kuntry Livin’.
ALSO get ready for Big Smo’s NEW Reality Show on A&E Network. “Big Smo,” a new original real life series following larger-than-life country rapper, Big Smo, as he takes his unique style of music to new heights with the support of lifelong friends, loyal fans and most importantly, his beloved family. “Big Smo” premieres Wednesday, June 11 at 10:30 PM ET/PT.
“You can tell when something’s real,” says the man known simply as Big Smo. “You can tell when it’s true. And I think what’s made us successful and gotten us this far is that we’re just real people, down-home country folk who really love to make music. People see that.”
Word of mouth, charged by the Internet, meant Smo could count his YouTube views in the millions before he talked to a record label. Low-budget videos showcasing his 32-acre farm, which has been passed down for generations, is his home base HQ. Homegrown in Tennessee, the self-proclaimed Boss of the Stix seamlessly weaves his work and play, his lifestyle and music on that farm, as compellingly as he weaves country, rock and hip-hop together.
His loyal fans – who he affectionately calls his Kinfoke – had better get ready to share Big Smo with an even larger audience.
The reason begins with the release of his major-label debut (June 3 on Warner Bros. records), titled Kuntry Livin’, a 13-song look inside the mind and music of one of the world’s true originals. Followed by a debut of an A&E original series centered on the country rapper, and it’s obvious this larger-than-life Tennessean has entered new territory – with every bit of the edge that brought him here.
