a few years ago, we ventured off into a new chapter in the junk gypsy story. we filmed a TV show. we never set out to be on TV… in fact, it was never, ever part of our plan. but because we partnered with a network and a team that didn’t want us to be anything other than ourselves, we took the leap. and thanks to all of y’all, season 1 was a big success. and we THANK you for that.
and now here we are…a few weeks away from the premiere of season 2 and i realized … there’s lots to tell y’all. (insert: “lucy, you’ve got some ‘splainin’ to do!”)
season 2 airs thursday june 12 at 9/8CST…on GREAT AMERICAN COUNTRY.
that’s right, not HGTV…we’ve moved to a new latitude on your TV dial and here’s why…
hgtv & great american country are both members of the scripps family and after collaborating with the amazing team at all 3 entities, it was clear that great american country and JG were meant for each other (cue ‘you were meant for me and i was meant for you’ by jewel)….whew, i digress.
great american country is all about celebrating the american lifestyle. the gramco theme is ‘love letters to america’, their hashtag (we all know i’m a self-proclaimed social media freak) is #dearamerica. i mean y’all, does it get any better? #dearamerica. i think not.
it’s about family. and country. and JUNK. and music. and…LIFE. which means you’ll see A LOT more of EVERYTHING this season.
MORE family. because, clearly…family is FIRST. and this business was built out of our determination to work together with our family.
more of our JG team that we can’t live without…the girls that pack your orders and answer the phone when you call. the girls that greet you at the door & check you out when you come to our headquarters. the girls and guys that have our back. we could NOT be where we are without them which is WHY it’s so important to us that you see more of them on the show.
more of the JG world HQ…this is a sacred place to us…it’s our sanctuary of junk that was 15 years in the making….so it’s only appropriate that it serves as the backdrop of our entire series.
more country. we are small-town girls at heart (god bless overton, texas). that little town formed us into the people that we are. and we are forever grateful. we now proudly call round top, texas our home…small town girls are what we are. it’s what we will forever be and it’s a core part of our business. you can take the girl outta the country…but you can’t take the country outta the girl. you’ll see more of our LIFE in the country. more ROUND TOP. more LARGE MARGE. more tractors and chainsaws and horses and BISCUITS. (oh my lawd. honey hush. biscuits make the world go ’round).
basically, you’ll see a lot more of all the things that make up JG. all of the things that are near and dear to our heart…all of the things that we think YOU love about JG too. it’s all rolled together. plus…there are some really exciting surprises this season as well… a special celebrity friend travels to round top…as she commissions us to work on a secret project. AND…you’ll learn about possibly the BIGGEST thing we’ve ever been a part of…it’s still top secret…and it’s killlllingggggg me to let the cat outta the bag…..but, patience, my child. the time will come.
so i think that’s it.
new season. new network. new digits on your dial.
and this new season y’all…well this, is our love letter to america.
