CMT's PROGRAMMING HIGHLIGHTS FOR 3/3-3/9
Programming Highlights March 3 - 9, 2008
GONE COUNTRY (episode 7) - SEASON FINALE!
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. In the series finale, the final performance is upon the cast, and their nerves are on edge as they prepare to present Nashville with the country songs they have written. The cast enters the Wildhorse Saloon, but before they perform, they prepare with rehearsals, sound checks and hair & make-up. Rich then arms the gang with one of the things that inspired him most as a performer, an inspirational prayer and a pep talk from his father, the preacher. The cast takes the stage to perform – and in the end, only one remains as the GONE COUNTRY winner. This special one-hour episode of GONE COUNTRY premieres Friday, March 7 at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT
