TRICK MY TRUCK (episode 20) - PREMIERE!
Jeff Magill, from Poplar Bluff, Mo., drives a dump truck locally to his town’s quarry. He loves his work, but lately he’s had to face one obstacle after another. Not long after he started trucking, both of his parents became gravely ill and he had to spend most of his free time caring for them. This put his truck maintenance on the backburner for a while, and the neglect has taken its toll. Recently, he’s had to completely wipe out his savings to keep up with the repairs. With all his money in the truck, Jeff’s had to postpone marrying Brandi, the girl he’s loved since he was 12. Don’t miss it, as The Chrome Shop Mafia pulls Jeff out of his hole and makes his dump truck stronger than ever. Premieres Friday, March 2 at 8:30 p.m., ET/PT
COUNTRY FRIED HOME VIDEOS (episode 5) - PREMIERE!
What makes a home video “country fried”? It could be a belly flopping contest in a mud puddle; shot gun bowling in the backyard; or even the age old favorite, bobbing for trout. Comedian Bill Engvall hosts the second season of COUNTRY FRIED HOME VIDEOS, the series that shows what everyday Americans do for fun and 15 seconds of fame. Each half-hour episode has one video awarded with Engvall’s infamous “Here’s Your Sign” cash prize at the end of each show. Premieres Friday, March 2 at 9:00 p.m., ET/PT
SOUTHERN FRIED FLICKS with HAZEL SMITH featuring EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE - CMT PREMIERE!
SOUTHERN FRIED FLICKS with HAZEL SMITH is one part movie, one part cooking show and all Hazel!

This week features EVERY WHICH WAY BUT LOOSE. Philo Beddoe (Clint Eastwood) is an easy-going trucker and a great fist-fighter. With two friends, Orville (Geoffrey Lewis), who promotes prize-fights for him, and Clyde (Manis), the orangutan he won on a bet, he roams the San Fernando Valley in search of cold beer, country music and the occasional punch-up. But he is floored by a dainty little country and western singer (Sondra Locke), who gives him the slip when she realizes he's getting too serious. Premieres Sunday, March 4 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT
