Last season on "My Big Redneck Vacation," the featured family brought their Southern pride and hospitality to the Hamptons. But this season, "My Big Redneck Vacation" is going International!

"My Big Redneck Vacation" season 2 is shipping the family out to England to stay in a 900 year old palace with 97 rooms and even a staff to wait on them night and day! Needless to say, it's going to be a heck of a party across England and even into Europe; which viewers can catch on CMT every Saturday night at 9pm.

To celebrate the second season of "My Big Redneck Vacation," we've assembled a list of locations that we'd like to see on the show from around the globe. It's a big world out there and "My Big Redneck Vacation" is ready to represent not just the South, but the entire nation. 





If there's any country that can appreciate the American Spirit of Independence, it's Ireland! Many Irish immigrants helped make the U.S. into what it is today, so it's only fitting that "My Big Redneck Vacation" pay a friendly visit to Ireland. Parts of the countryside are like stepping into a time machine to see the unspoiled beauty of the Irish landscape with villages and castles built hundreds of years ago. Plus the family will probably also enjoy kissing the Blarney stone and other breathtaking locations .

But if you want to get your drink on, wait until you try real Irish Ale and Whiskey alongside the locals in authentic Irish pubs.

It's rumored that part of "My Big Redneck Vacation" season 2 will take place in Paris, France. But this is a location that could fill several seasons just by itself. If you've ever heard the expression "World class city," Paris would definitely fit the bill. It is one of the most visually stunning places that you could ever find and it isn't called "The City of Lights" for nothing.

Visitors from around the world flock to the Eiffel Tower, the Palace of Versailles, the Château de Chambord and dozens of other famous locations. But for this show, it would be hilarious if the family visited the Louvre Museum and offered commentary on some of the greatest artwork ever assembled in one place.

Paris and France are also better known for their wine rather than their beer. But that shouldn't stop anyone from expanding their horizons. And in France, even the food is an adventure.

Out of all of the Asian countries, Japan is perhaps the most similar to the United States thanks to the way that its people have embraced Western culture. They're very much like us… except in the ways that they're not.

But what's not to love about a country that's also the video game capital of the world? "My Big Redneck Vacation" could provide a fascinating look at America not just through the eyes of the vacationing family, but also in the way that the Japanese people see us.

And we promise, if you give it time you'll come to love Saki. It's awesome.



For a country that started out as a British penal colony, Australia has done pretty well for itself. This would probably be one the easiest countries for "My Big Redneck Vacation" to visit simply because there isn't a big language barrier… just the occasional accent barrier.

There are a lot of great cities to visit in Australia including Sydney and Melbourne in addition to famous locations like The Great Barrier Reef and even Kangaroo Island; which is exactly what it sounds like.

Contrary to popular belief, Australian beer isn't just limited to Foster's. So there will be plenty of opportunities to party with the locals near that funky looking Opera house that's on all of the post cards.



While the Middle East isn't an obvious location for "My Big Redneck Vacation," a trip to Dubai is more like stepping into Fantasyland than going to the Arab peninsula. Thanks in large part to its relatively liberal culture and modern attractions, Dubai is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the entire world.

Let's put it this way, there are nine artificial islands to visit, twenty or more world class shipping malls, dozens of resorts and even their own Dubailand theme park, with smaller attractions for Universal Studios, Dreamworks Studios, Legoland and even the Marvel Superheroes Theme Park.

The downside of Dubai is that the local culture is a little stricter than we're used to. Don't make the mistake of wearing a swimsuit outside of a beach and please note that alcohol consumption has some tight limits attached to it.

Of course, these cultural flashpoints could also make for a very entertaining season of "My Big Redneck Vacation"… aside from the occasional International incident.
