Episode Summary

Greatest Outlaws: The Dirty Dozen
CMT pays homage to country music's unflinching and legendary rebels in CMT Greatest Outlaws: The Dirty Dozen, a countdown to country's most revolutionary hellion. These are the dozen artists most known for pushing the envelope to create their own brand of music, punctuated with a brash attitude and bold lifestyle. The countdown looks at the lives and music of Hank Williams, Tanya Tucker, Kris Kristofferson, Hank Williams Jr. and eight more revolutionaries to be revealed on the special.

The first country performer ever to grace the cover of Rolling Stone magazine, country wild child Tucker has influenced a host of artists including "Redneck Woman" phenomenon Gretchen Wilson. In a CMT exclusive interview, Wilson, who cites Tucker as a major influence, says, "Tanya Tucker's the original bad girl of country music. Everybody knows that. She grew up in front of us all. What I love about her is that her life has always been an open book."

CMT Greatest Outlaws: The Dirty Dozen includes exclusive interviews with contemporary country artists including Toby Keith, Wilson, Kenny Chesney, Travis Tritt, Martina McBride, Big & Rich and Steve Earle, all of whom were inspired by the Dirty Dozen. Rebels in their own right, Paul Teutul Sr. (American Chopper) and G. Gordon Liddy also speak out. The one-hour original features classic performances, photos and behind-the-scenes accounts.moreless
