Contrary to some people's popular belief, Jeff Foxworthy is not some overnight success story. Before starring on The Jeff Foxworthy Show for two 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.
In April 1999, The Jeff Foxworthy Countdown, a weekly syndicated three-hour radio show, debuted featuring Jeff bringing fans the current Top 20 hits as well as interviews with country stars. The show is carried in over two hundred markets across the United States. Jeff received a CMA nomination in 2001 for Broadcast Personality of the Year.
