Contrary to some people’s popular belief; Jeff Foxworthy is not some
overnight success story. Before starring on The Jeff Foxworthy
Show for 2 seasons, releasing many best-selling CD’s and
books and selling out major theaters, Foxworthy was practically on
a first-name basis with every Holiday Inn manager in the country.
Years of relentless touring, mastering the art of sleeping while
standing and waking up at the crack of dawn to do morning radio
and television interviews, all have helped mold Jeff into one of
the most respected and successful comedians in the country.
Jeff’s CD, Totally Committed, released in May 1998 was
his fourth CD and marked a new direction in his life and material.
Released in conjunction with the CD was a one-hour HBO stand-up
special by the same name. The CD not only reached gold status but
also received a 1999 Grammy Award nomination, the third such honor
Foxworthy has received for his recording efforts.
Jeff’s comedy recordings made him the largest selling comedy recording
artist in history. His first CD, You Might Be A Redneck If (Warner
Bros./1994) has been registered triple platinum status, the only time a comedy CD has surpassed this mark. It has
also become the largest selling comedy recording of all time. The
tremendous reaction to this CD resulted in both a music video and
a single entitled "Redneck Stomp".
His July 1995 release, "Games Rednecks Play," was
certified platinum a mere 5 weeks later. Games Rednecks Play,
which is now triple platinum, went on to receive a 1996 Grammy
nomination for Best Comedy Album.
"Crank It Up:The Music Album" was released in the
fall of 1996 and contains the hit single and video "Party All
Night" featuring Little Texas. The single "Games
Rednecks Play" with country star Alan Jackson also appears on
the album and was nominated for a 1997 Grammy nomination for Best
Vocal Collaboration. The CD, which has been certified platinum,
was Jeff’s salute to his hometown of Atlanta.
Jeff Foxworthy is one of the most respected and successful comedians in the country.
Widely known for his redneck jokes, his act goes well beyond that to explore the humor in everyday family interactions and human nature, a style that has been compared to Mark Twain’s.
