Austin signs with CMT



Steve Austin has signed a deal with Country Music Television which will begin with him hosting a reality show on the station named "Redneck Island."

The ten-week show takes 12 "red, white and blue-collared" Americans out of the South--and far away from cold beer--dropping them in a tropical paraidse where they will compete for $100,000" according to a network press release.

The show debuts next month and will run for ten episodes.
