NASHVILLE � September 26, 2008 � Host John Rich tapped rocker Sebastian Bach as the winner of the second season of CMT's hit series, GONE COUNTRY, in tonight's season finale. Bach is set to immediately release "Battle with the Bottle" to radio, the song he penned with Nashville songwriters Jeffrey Steele and Vicky McGehee while taping the series. The song is produced by John Rich. The accompanying video, directed by Wayne Isham, is currently available on CMT.com and will debut on CMT on Saturday, September 27. Bach, who edged out tough competition from fellow GONE COUNTRY contestants Mikalah Gordon, Jermaine Jackson, Chris Kirkpatrick, Lorenzo Lamas and Sean Young, performed his song before a live audience at Nashville's Wildhorse Saloon in the show's finale. In the end, Rich dubbed Bach the winner because of his ability to connect to his audience and his lyrics, something that is essential in country music.

"Sebastian put his real life experiences into his song," says host, Rich. "'Battle with the Bottle' deals with the challenges he faces in his life on a daily basis, and when your music imitates your life, that's where great country music happens. He truly understands what makes a great country song, and his singing ability is still off the charts. I'm very proud of him �going country'!"

Bach, perhaps best known as the former front-man of Skid Row, is an accomplished Broadway actor and television personality. Bach is also a solo artist and most recently released the album, Angel Down, in the fall of 2007 by Merovingian Music, Ltd. For more information, visit www.sebastianbach.com.
