25 Million Homes Nationwide
Nashville, Tenn. (January 21, 2014) - Today, "Behind The Scene with Kenny & Friends" announced its 3rd season of programming on Rural TV and FamilyNet Television.
“Behind The Scene with Kenny & Friends” is a laid back, “front porch” style interview program highlighting up-close and personal discussions with music producers, recording artists, and renowned songwriters along with many other guests in the entertainment industry. The 30-minute weekly show searches the other side of the music industry, specifically the “talent behind the talent” and the “story behind the song.” Guests range from the up-and-coming hitmakers to talented veterans. Through cable and satellite providers, the show airs in all 50 states (more than 25 million households) every Saturday at 2:30 PM ET and replays every Friday at 1:30 PM ET.
"I’m celebrating over 50 years of being in love….with Country music," says host Kenny Dean. "My older brother was a truck driver and still is, so I remember first listening to an AM radio show called 'The Charlie Douglas Road Gang,' and now 50 years later I’m able to sit down with seasoned artists, songwriters, producers, as well as these young up 'n coming stars. Remember when you were a kid going into the candy store? Well I’m that kid now in the candy store of the 'Country Music Community.' God has blessed me and I thank him every day."
Tagged by some as the "Johnny Carson of Country Music," host Kenny Dean is a husband, father and grandfather whose good ole boy persona and wholesome honesty is as welcoming at first introduction as it is show after show. In addition to being a TV personality on various stations over the course of his 17-year broadcast career, Dean hosted the two-hour live television morning show “The Front Porch” for more than 15 years. Named the North American Country Music Association International (NACMAI) “TV Personality Of The Year” in 2006, Dean has covered political and entertainment sectors—conducting interviews with governors, congressmen, senators and state officials along with the all-time music greats.
From an inside-out perspective, “Behind the Scene with Kenny & Friends” explores and reveals the inner workings of Nashville to offer viewers a true-to-life sneak peek into the business like never seen before. From young gun hitmakers to award-winning, trendsetting veteran entertainers, such as Tracy Lawrence, Jo Dee Messina, Ronnie Milsap, Ray Stevens, Aaron Tippin and Billy Dean, the best-of-the-best have made the scene with Kenny Dean!
