Goodbye Swag Wagon! Big Smo – #BigSmo on AETV Ep2 Recap

In the second episode of “Big Smo” on A&E TV…..it opens with a breakdown…on the side of the road.  Their “Swag Wagon,” what they call this old tour bus that used to be a Church Bus breaks down and opens the  it’s an old Church Bus that they re-built.

Just to recap Big Smo on A&E TV is a real life series following country rapper, Big Smo, as he takes his unique style of music to new heights with the support of lifelong friends, loyal fans, and his beloved family. It is a behind the scenes look at Country Rapper, King of Hick Hop Big Smo’s family, music, and rise to stardom. His music is Country fried rock rap otherwise know as HICK HOP.  It’s a sub-genre of Country Music with a twist of southern rock and roll delivered in a rap form.

Big Smo has a few nick names, the King of Hick Hop, King of the Country, Boss of the Stix, Hick Ross, Big Boss, The Big Smocephusbut call him what you want to call him, this is one of the first reality shows to come along in a long time where the star is authentic and I wouldn’t expect anything less from someone like Big Smo, who always tells it the way it is, especially through his music, and has a posse around him like manager Dan Nelson, singers Haden Carpenter and Alexander King as well as his beautiful other half Whitney, along with his Mama, children and kinfolk (the name he gives his fans).

Professor Smo
We get see Big Smo “the family man” spending working on homework with his children.

“Daddy why are all your word (math) problems all about food?”  Big Smo replies, “cause I am always hungry.” Which sets us up for the next scene at his Mama’s house  where he has to ask her permission to purchase a new tour bus.

The show opens with a monologue from Big Smo,

“When I was a little boy, I loved Hip Hop my heroes were the Beastie Boys, Dr Dre, Ice Cube. When I told my parents I wanted to be a rap star, they just laughed and said,  ‘Boy don’t you know YOU COUNTRY'”

His lives this anthem: “It takes one heck of a crew to start a crusade!”

“My kinfolk mean everything to me…these are my people who make me who I am….and it’s BIG COUNTRY out here!”

In the spirit of honesty this reality show is completely reality and takes you on a journey of  an artist who is giving you the best of what he is. I recently wrote my first music review because I was moved by his music. If you get a chance make sure you check out his new album “Kuntry Livin‘” available at Walmart on itunes.

Here’s what you’re saying about Big Smo on A&E:

“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.

Everyone asks “what exactly do you do Jessica?” What some of my family members say, “she tweets for a living” is my favorite, but really the title that puts food on the table is “Social Media Influencer,” the definition sounds simple, someone who influences others through social media, but I consider myself a Citizen Journalist broadcasting and entertaining with news, thoughts, opinions, delivering information in my own unique way. Famous for my ‘sass wit and straight from the hip’ style I’ve always been called a “Social Media Pioneer” in the music industry. I’m also an On-Air/Online Broadcasting Host and Personality, Digital Media Strategist, Country and Music Blogger/Journalist as well as a Nationally recognized Speaker and Founder of Country Music Chat, News and Views Entertainment Website CMChatLIVE.com. My favorite accomplishment is starting the largest Country Music Hashtag community in the world Country Music’s #CMChat. It all started with a hunch...back in the early 2000’s I would dial up the internet via AOL and join chat rooms whilst watching my favorite programs on TV. Loved watching Reality Shows with my Mom in Tucson, and blowing her mind with how I always knew who was going home on the Bachelor or Big Brother. Don’t think she ever caught on that I was talking to people via computer on the East Coast, where it had already aired. (We didn’t have the uber-spoiler Twitter or Facebook to ruin results and awards shows for us yet.) I’ve been taking over the internet, one tweet at a time and have accumulated over 3 Million followers/friends/fans across all my Social Media networks. Over the years I’ve been consistently ranked as an influential online personality and even named as a Forbes Top 50 Social Media Power Influencer. I was the first person Merle Haggard followed when he got on Twitter and spent the day with Garth Brooks at Twitter and Facebook when joined the social media world.
