Presented by Hometown-Motors, Inc.

In a statement on YouTube, John Schneider announced the postponement of his Bo’s Extravaganza: On the Road.

“I know many of you are very concerned about what’s going on” the actor/singer states in the video. ”Many of you know, Alicia (Schneider’s wife) broke her back in two places.” Schneider goes on to say she had been making tiny improvements, but not enough to continue with the rigors of Schneider’s schedule.

The weekend of racing, stunts, movies and concerts was scheduled for May 6-8 at Atomic Speedway.

Schneider explains his focus needs to be ”nothing but Alicia and Alicia’s health” at this time.

Efforts are being made to reschedule Bo’s Extravaganza.

Meanwhile, Atomic Speedway readies for its event this Saturday, featuring Open Wheel Madness. Get more details at www.atomicspeedway.net.

In the years since, he appeared in more than 80 television shows, nearly 50 films and released 25 country music albums. His most recent work is “Southern Ways” featuring the single “Younger Man”.

In an interview with Litter Media’s Dan Ramey, Schneider talks about his acting career, his music, his relationship with Johnny Cash, breaking away from Hollywood and Nashville to form his own production company and the “Big Machine” a.k.a, the Country Music industry.
