ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J. — December 15, 2016 – Music legend Tim McGraw lends his voice to season two of "Blue Collar Millionaires," premiering Wednesday, January 4th with back-to-back episodes at 10PM and 10:30PM ET/PT. Consisting of ten half-hour episodes, the new season celebrates America's most inspiring self-made successes: the working-class men and women who've managed to build fortunes with nothing but mud, sweat, and tears. From gator trappers to chimney sweeps to junkyard kings, these folks have overcome incredible obstacles on the way to mastering their trades. But today, they're all blue-collar millionaires – and they're ready to share what they've learned.
From SallyAnn Salsano & 495 Productions, each episode of "Blue Collar Millionaires" profiles three hard-working entrepreneurs who've gotten rich by getting their hands dirty. These big personalities have made millions rolling up their sleeves… but at the end of the work day, they drive home to their palatial mansion and park their pick-up next to their collection of high-end sports cars. No doubt about it – these are not your typical millionaires. Learn how guts, grit, and a can-do mindset made them rich beyond their wildest dreams…and find out how they spend their hard-earned millions when they're off the clock and having fun.
