CMT's PROGRAMMING HIGHLIGHTS FOR 2/11-2/17
Programming Highlights February 11- 17, 2008
GONE COUNTRY (episode 4) - PREMIERE!
Known for pushing the limits of mainstream country music with the genre-bending Muzik Mafia, 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 advises the cast that there is more to "going country" than donning a cowboy hat and playing a guitar; it's also about helping out your fellow neighbor. The group is challenged to raise money by hosting a charity car wash for the Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. After the car wash, the cast travels to the hospital to meet the children whom they have worked to help, and one special story steals their hearts. Upon returning to the house, the group unwinds and comes together for an impromptu group therapy session. Premieres Friday, February 15 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT
