"Big Smo" (TV show) is a reality docu-series on A&E that follows larger-than-life country "hick-hop" artist, 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.

Born John Smith in the small town of Unionville, Tennessee, Big Smo is a country boy turned charismatic "hick-hop" artist (a blend of country, Southern rock and hip-hop) who just signed to Warner Bros. Records. While music is Smo's lifelong passion, he's a family man first and foremost. Surrounded by a lively extended entourage including his mother, childhood buddies, long-time girlfriend and two young daughters, Smo is driven to stay grounded and succeed in a business known for hard living.

As he gears up to debut his first major-label album, "Kuntry Livin'," Smo is continuously challenged to balance the tireless life of a touring musician with the demands of his family responsibilities.When not out on the road, Smo's on his farm in Unionville in the role he holds most dear, that of a good and present father to his daughters and supportive partner to Whitney, the love of his life.Through it all, Smo's determination, die-hard fans (known affectionately as his Kinfoke) and deep Southern family roots keep him going on his wild ride to fame.

Season 2

In the aftermath of his first major label release "Kuntry Livin'," which topped both rap and country charts, Smo continues to convert tentative listeners into fans he affectionately calls Kinfoke. But for every professional milestone achieved is a personal sacrifice made. Hectic touring schedules and label demands don't make it easy for Smo to find balance between his role as an artist with that of a father, husband and son. As Smo works to secure a second album with Warner, he also strives to carve out quality time with his wife, help his daughters through their teenage angst and support his mom during the family's biggest challenge to date, her battle with cancer. Professionally, Smo will celebrate big wins like performing with rock legend Lynyrd Skynyrd and country superstar John Rich, alongside devastating blows like losing his writing partner and bandmate. But through it all, Smo's tenacity, coupled with the love he has for his family, is all the motivation he needs to fight for his continued success every step of the way.
