Three Redneck Tenors plan TV series

First, America’s Got Talent. Next, their own TV show! The 3 Redneck Tenors, a professionally trained singing group from Dallas that first gained national recognition last summer on the NBC show, have joined forces with LMNO Prods (The Littlest Groom) to star in their own reality or scripted series. “These are serious musicians,” says LMNO chief Eric Schotz. “They have the potential to go beyond being a one-trick pony.”

Having originally joined forces for a stage musical in 2004, the Tenors (Matthew Lord, John Wilkerson, and Alex Bumpas) are currently touring the country in their signature mullets, singing songs like “Ave Maria Dixie.”  “There are no redneck jokes. We’re just rednecks,” says Lord. “It’s been an amazing hit everywhere we’ve gone.”
