New Year! New Shows!


RFD-TV is giving fans more music programming in 2017. “The Jimmy Dean Show” (which originally aired in the 1960s) has been lovingly restored and is ready to entertain fans with classic country and comedy. Did you love 90’s country music? You won’t want to miss “Opry Encore” -- a new series that showcases some of country’s biggest stars on the Opry stage. Music pioneer Stan Hitchcock is back with never before seen episodes of “Heart to Heart Classics,” and “The Joey+Rory Show” returns with new retrospective episodes.

New seasons of several popular series also start this month including “The Final Spin,” “Steve Lantvit Horsemanship,” “Cookin’ Outdoors,” “Red Steagall West of Wall Street,” “Horse Master with Julie Goodnight,” and the ever popular “Larry’s Country Diner.”
