About Crank It Up: The Music Album

Crank It Up: The Music Album is the first musical album recorded by Jeff Foxworthy. It features many of Foxworthy's skits set to music, primarily with choruses sung by other musicians. Two comedy sketches, "S. I. N. G. L. E." and "Still More You Might Be a Redneck If…", are also featured. The concept for the album was conceived after the release of Foxworthy's first album, You Might Be a Redneck If.... Doug Grau, Foxworthy's A&R representative at Warner Bros. Records, was contacted by Warner Bros' music video department about creating a music video for the album. Grau was inspired by the works of Dickie Goodman to edit Foxworthy's stand-up material over top of a music bed. Record producer Scott Rouse was then hired to develop the musical beds. The first song, "Redneck Stomp", premiered on CMT in the summer of 1994, with a music video directed by Al Yankovic. The music video for "Redneck Stomp" is accredited with propelling You Might Be a Redneck If...'s sales from 200,000 to 2 million. A second video, "Party All Night", was quickly produced, and rose to the top of CMT's music video charts. The success of these two music videos led to a complete album of Foxworthy's "music comedy" to be released in 1996."Redneck Stomp", "Redneck Games", "Redneck 12 Days of Christmas", and "'Twas the Night After Christmas" all charted on the Hot Country Songs charts between 1995 and 1996. "Redneck 12 Days of Christmas" was the highest-charting, reaching No. 18 in early 1996 and re-charting several times for each subsequent Christmas until 2000
