'Party Down South'

Southern Rebellion

Ends in Surrender!

3/16/2014 12:35 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


The South will apparently rise again -- "Party Down South" is coming back for Season 2 now that the cast is waving the white flag of surrender in its pay dispute ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... the "PDS" regulars were stonewalling ... refusing to work unless CMT paid them  $7,500 an episode --  a hefty 1,400% pay raise from the paltry 500 bucks for Season 1.

But sources close to the show tell us ... CMT refused to budge -- even though "PDS" is the network's most successful show EVER. 

We're told, the network is being hard-ass ... saying the cast signed a contract through season 2, so that's the way it is ... the network's way or the highway.

BUT ... CMT dangled a carrot, promising bigger paychecks in Season 3. 

Note to cast:  That's the oldest trick in the book.

Totally interchangeable cast until maybe one breaks out. Better get lining up those guest DJ gigs in Tupelo guys - put some money away while you can

If they had kept theie demands reasonable, they night just have succeeded. As it is, they'd better hope their numbers are up or the same for season two. Otherwise, they will join the majority of reality stars in "nowheresville".

The guy in the plaid shirt was arrested about a month ago back here in Louisiana. He went into someone's vehicle in a local bar,stole there credit card and went back inside and used it to pay for drinks. The bar is the only one in this town where everyone knows each other. He was caught very shortly after stealing the card and he was seen in person as well as camera's in the parking lot. He is not the brightest Crayon in the box.
