The boys from "Party Down South" tipped their hand and revealed their plans to expose themselves on the red carpet of the CMT Awards ... and TMZ has learned the network is doing whatever it can to make sure that doesn't happen.

Ryan "Daddy" Richards posted his plan on Twitter this morning, saying that he and Josh Murray planned on pulling out their penises and sword fighting on the red carpet. 

According to our sources, CMT immediately pulled the guys into a meeting to put a kibosh on the plan. We're told the network has instructed the guys to stay sober during the awards -- and as backup, 5 security guards will be assigned to them all night.
