amassed RIAA-certified sales in excess of ten million album units since their national
launch in 1995, and achieved ten #1 country hits including "No News," "Come Crying To
Me," and their crossover smash "Amazed" (which was also #1 on the Billboard Hot 100,
the first record since 1983's "Islands in the Stream", to top both charts). The band's

“Foxworthy is especially virtuosic in his physical comedy, his flights of fancy and lightning shifts of tone and mood, he blends all these elements effortlessly. He may define being redneck as possessing “a glorious lack of sophistication,” but the truth is that Foxworthy, for all his regular-guy image, is a decidedly sophisticated artist.” Kevin Thomas, LA TIMES
Jeff Foxworthy is one of the most respected and successful comedians in the country. He is the largest selling comedy-recording artist in history, a multiple Grammy Award nominee and best selling author of more than 26 books. In 2014, he was inducted into the Georgia Music Hall of Fame. 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.
Jeff has been announced as one of the judges on the new NBC comedy competition show “Bring The Funny,” set to premiere later this year. He has his own comedy channel “Jeff and Larry’s Comedy Roundup” on SIRIUSXM, which showcases the best in great American comedy. He has a comedy special “We’ve Been Thinking” which is currently available on Netflix and most recently released a game called “Relative Insanity” which uses bits of his material for lots of game time fun. In addition to all of this he continues his live performances across the country.
