Artists guest-starrring on Campfire Cafe might arrive starving, but host Johnny Nix whips up gourmet campfire cuisine to satisfy these celebrity appetites in no time. The celebrity cooking series premiered Tuesday, September 27th, with 26 new episodes airing nationwide each week.

Viewers of Campfire Cafe, the only open fire cooking show on TV, will be delighted to see their favorite country music stars relaxed and having fun cooking with host Johnny Nix in the new Fall 2005 season series.

Artists featured in the new series are: Mark Chesnutt, Joe Diffie, Aaron Tippin, Adam Marshall, Andy Griggs, Mark Wills, John Conlee, Brad Cotter, Buddy Jewell, Jett Williams, Daryle Singletary, Rhett Akins, Kentucky Headhunters (brothers, Richard and Fred Young), and the legendary Ray Price.

Filmed on location in the beautiful mountains of Tennessee at the Hank Williams Estate, home of daughter Jett Williams. The series features meals cooked in real-time using authentic recipes from the Lewis and Clark Expedition provided by historical cookbook authors, Mary Gunderson and Leslie Mansfield. Host Johnny Nix has guest artists baking cakes, cobblers and pies, roasting turkey, Cornish game hens and buffalo, grilling salmon, frying venison and cooking hams – all over an open fire.

"I've never agreed to do a cooking show before," said Mark Chesnutt. "But when I saw how Johnny cooks, I knew this was something I wanted to try!" Many of the featured artists had never before appeared on a cooking show. Being outdoorsmen for the most part, guests Daryle Singletary, Rhett Akins, and Aaron Tippin are looking forward to cooking at their hunting camps with their new open fire expertise learned from Johnny.

Mark Chesnutt baked a Gingerbread Pear cake that he took back to the hotel for breakfast. "It was great fun working with these folks, and finding out that they love to cook outdoors just like everyone else," said host Johnny Nix. Viewers will be looking forward to each episode in the series to see their favorite performers doing something totally unexpected… mixing, chopping and roasting.

The 13-episode series premieres on RFD-TV on DISH and DIRECTV networks Tuesday, September 27, 2005 and repeats 3 times throughout the week. Campfire Cafe is now in its seventh season of broadcast, hosted by the nation's leading expert on open fire cooking, Johnny Nix.
