Chip and Joanna Gaines of popular HGTV show "Fixer Uppers" are extending their reach with a new cable channel, Magnolia Network, and a newly announced reality show will be partially filmed in Charleston. 

No, it doesn't have anything to do with home renovations. In fact, the focus is music. 

People Magazine has a first exclusive look at the show, "Home on the Road," which will chronicle husband-and-wife folk duo Johnnyswim on tour with their two young children.
