Chip and Joanna Gaines are “MAKING TELEVISION!”
The former “Fixer Upper” couple announced the first TV show to drop on their Magnolia Network will feature their favorite band and close friends Johnnyswim.
“Home on the Road” will follow musicians Abner Ramirez and Amanda Sudano Ramirez as they tour the country with their two children: son Joaquin, 4, and daughter Luna, 1.
“We want to have our whole family together, all the time,” Abner said in the series trailer. But, Amanda said, “being on tour with babies takes a lot of scheduling and planning. … Two small children and a bus full of people, I think, would scare and horrify most people.”
“But, you know, scared or not, we’re going for it,” her husband added.

Joanna shared the series trailer on Instagram Tuesday, writing, “We’re so excited to work with them on telling their story on our network with @discoveryinctv.”
“It’s been over five years since we first met Abner and Amanda and have been endlessly drawn to the way they approach everything they do,” she added. “They’re dreamers, musicians, artists, storytellers and parents – living life out of a tour bus and making the most out of every town they visit.”
In January 2018, Chip revealed that the musicians may even have had something to do with their fifth child, Crew, who was born that June.
He tweeted, “The ever amazing, ever romantic @JOHNNYSWIM was in Waco. And they put on a little too romantic of a concert.. anyways, one thing led to another, & we are officially pregnant. And I could not be more EXCITED! #5.”

“Home on the Road” will debut on the Gaineses’ new cable network in 2020.
“We loved this idea of connecting with people in a different way,” Joanna told USA TODAY, “telling other people’s stories, curating content. It felt to us a lot like what we do love with the magazine, but on a different playing field.”
The couple shot to fame on HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” and concluded their five-season run last April.
