CMT’s Southern Nights Unites Sweet Home Alabama Favorites

New Series Premieres April 7 Following Second Season of Texas Women

CMT’s new series, Southern Nights, brings 10 well-known cast members from the network’s Sweet Home Alabama to Georgia, where they will live and party together, promising more fun and drama than ever.

The cast heads to the beautiful Southern city of Savannah where some relationships will begin and others will be tested as past conflicts resurface and different lifestyles collide. Throughout the eight-episode series, they will explore the best of the South — from rodeos and ranches to upscale nightclubs and tailgate parties.

Southern Nights premieres April 7 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on CMT with two back-to-back new episodes immediately following the second season premiere of Texas Women.

New episodes will premiere weekly on Saturdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT.
