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.
In the 3rd episode of “Big Smo” on A&E TV….. Mr Smo is put on the hot seat…literally but it’s scale and he’s standing on it.
“I feel like somebody ducktaped a teenager to my stomach,” says Big Smo.
When a guy’s name starts with Big, he means business. This episode follows Mr Smo through a fan giving him a Pig (yep that’s how they do it in the south), going to see the Doctor, bringing the pig home to teach his kids responsibility, weight gain, weight loss and Country Crossfit with Mr Alexander King.
“I wanna be able to take my shirt off on-stage without making my Sound man vomit.”
I laughed so hard I cried during this episode, and I felt bad. When Smo is explaining to this Doctor his eatting regime I thought the Doctor was gonna pass out.

“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.
