GONE COUNTRY (episode 3) - PREMIERE!
Known for pushing the limits of mainstream country music with the genre-bending MuzikMafia, John Rich, of the hit country duo Big & Rich, takes on his biggest challenge yet, taking seven established performers from every realm of the entertainment and music industries and immersing them in all things country for a chance to break out as the next big country superstar. The one who is most successful at crossing-over by the end of the series, will have a country single produced by Rich. The tour bus picked up the seven cast members - Carnie Wilson, Dee Snider, Diana DeGarmo, Julio Iglesias Jr., Maureen McCormick, Sisqo, and lastly, the unlikely country hopeful, Bobby Brown - at different "Music City" landmarks, and now it is time to find out who has truly GONE COUNTRY. This week Rich takes the cast to Gretchen Wilson�s ranch to learn the country way of life. The "redneck woman" puts the group to work cleaning stalls, corralling yearlings and feeding horses; after all the chores are done, Wilson gives the cast gives a lesson in skeet shooting. That evening, the group heads downtown for a "Hick Chick" challenge involving a belching contest, a watermelon seed spitting competition and a toilet seat toss that causes tempers to flare. Premieres Friday, February 8 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT
