“Tanked” Series Featuring Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Show in Pigeon Forge

The Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Show in Pigeon Forge will get a unique, custom-built aquarium during an episode of “Tanked” this Friday.

The popular television series “Tanked” will replace an old moonshine still in the lobby of the local Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Show with an aquarium in an episode titled, “When the Moon(shine) Hits Your Eyes” airing Friday, Jan. 16, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. on the Animal Planet Network. This is the “Tanked” season finale and will include scenes from the dinner show and climax in the big reveal of the aquarium to cast members and David Fee and Jim Hedrick, co-owners of the theater. More than two million viewers are expected to watch the episode.

“Tanked” is a reality television show following Wayde King and Brett Raymer, business partners and best friends who own Acrylic Tank Manufacturers (ATM) in Las Vegas, as they travel the world designing one-of-a-kind, outrageously themed fish aquariums.

The Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Show in Pigeon Forge is a variety show that tells a hilarious story inspired by real life tragic events. The show runs about two hours and offers guests extraordinary country, bluegrass, and gospel vocal and instrumental musical performances, award winning hillbilly musicians and cloggers, and a huge mountain feast. It is produced by the Fee/Hedrick Family Entertainment Group, whose other shows include The Comedy Barn®, the Smoky Mountain Opry, and the Blackwoods Morning Variety Show featuring the Blackwoods.

“We are delighted that the Animal Planet Tanked TV series chose the Hatfield and McCoy lobby for their show,” said Fee, president and chief executive officer of Fee/Hedrick and co-owner of the Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Show. “We encourage people to watch the show this Friday night and to stop by the lobby of our theater to see our moonshine still tank.”

I do not want to spoil the surprise, but will say the cast celebrates their new aquarium in true Hatfield and McCoy fashion.

The Hatfield and McCoy Dinner Theater is located at 119 Music Road in Pigeon Forge. For more information about the show, visit or call (865) 908-7469 (SHOW).
