CMT's PROGRAMMING HIGHLIGHTS FOR 2/25-3/2
Programming Highlights February 25 - March 3, 2008
GONE COUNTRY (episode 6) - 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 informs the cast that they will record a demo of their country singles which he will review and critique. The group first blows off some steam by participating in an ATV challenge (which ends up being more of a mud fight) and then gets to work laying down their tracks. Country music legend Randy Owen of Alabama, accompanies Rich to the mansion that evening where the two review the cast's country singles.
Premieres Friday, February 29 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT
