Catch the Most Outrageous Builds and the Stories Behind Them on the New Season of Big Kenny’s Crank It Up Garage

Big Kenny (of Big & Rich) and his wingman Charlie Pennachio are doing it again! In the new season of the Circle Network original series, Big Kenny’s Crank It Up Garage, they travel to small towns across America to bring viewers some of the wildest, craziest garage builds. As Big Kenny says, “If it rides, glides, floats or flies, or moves otherwise,” then it could show up on Crank It Up Garage.

The first season featured a rocket-powered Amish buggy, a speedy, sideways school bus, and more tricked-out rides. And there’s even more outrageous builds coming this season! As a bonus feature, some of the show was filmed in Big Kenny’s home garage, which means viewers get a peek into his own amazing workspace.

Not only do they explore these crazy custom vehicles, they also travel the country as generous storytellers to find these unique builds and the stories behind them. These builders take things to a whole new level with their creative and extreme projects, so you never know what will show up next. 

Aside from his on-screen role, Big Kenny is also one-half of the multi-platinum selling country music duo Big & Rich! Together, they have recorded six studio albums and charted nineteen singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts. Crank It Up Garage was even produced by co-executive Mark Oswald, Big Kenny and John Rich’s longtime manager.

As a solo artist and a songwriter, Big Kenny has recorded several albums under the label he started in 2009 –  Glotown Records. His solo albums that stemmed from this business include “The Quiet Times of a Rock and Roll Farm Boy” and “Electro Shine.” 

Charlie Pennachio is heavily involved in the music business as a multi-platinum selling songwriter, producer and recording artist. At 20 years old, Pennachio founded and created his own record label Futura International Records, which has now seen multi platinum success world wide. From this label, his first release was his own project – “Sending All My Love” in 1989.
