Episode Summary

Find out what all the fuss is about -- from a freezer full of frozen pets to a ruckus over a mullet -- as CMT revisits some of the most infamous feuds in country music. CMT Most Shocking: Feuds gives the scoop on the Travis Tritt - Billy Ray Cyrus mullet melee; the Hank Williams estate battle between Hank Willams Jr. and Jett Williams; the love triangle involving Glen Campbell and Mac Davis; and the bizarre twists, winding probate and frozen pet fracas surrounding the Jim Reeves Museum. The episode also visits Pikeville, Ky., for a look at the granddaddy of all feuds, the Hatfields and McCoys. Brad Paisley pushed the buttons of pop singer-songwriter Richard Marx when Paisley publicly stated that country music is about the song and pop music is about the production. "Steam started to come off my scalp," Marx says. "I was personally offended because I guess, especially at that time, I did consider myself a pop songwriter. And so, in a sense, even though I know he wasn't directing it personally at me, he was making a really blanket statement that to me, and I think any intelligent person, would say ‘OK, so that means the integrity of pop songwriters is not as deep as country songwriters.'" Commenting on her relationship and her only meeting with brother Hank Williams Jr., Jett Williams says, "So his wife, Merle [Kilgore], my husband and I met in the basement of the Country Music Hall of Fame. We visited for probably 45 minutes and then we put our arms around each other, and we walked out to about a million flashbulbs. But you know, we did get to talk and get to visit. We do not have a close personal relationship, but we do business because I did inherit half of the estate. And some of his children and I do have a relationship. If you look back on everything else, I hope someday we'll be able to put everything behind us and maybe go fishing."moreless
