CMT renews 'Gone Country,' reveals third-season cast identities

By Reality TV World Staff, 11/10/2008 

CMT announced it has renewed Gone Country for a third season which will debut in January 2009 and also revealed the identities of the seven celebrities who will head to Nashville and compete for the chance to record and release a country song.

Gone Country's third-season cast will consist of funk legend and founding member of Parliament and Funkadelic George Clinton; Miss USA 2006 Tara Conner; pop singer and actress Taylor Dayne; former The Monkees drummer Mickey Dolenz; musician and philanthropist Sheila E.; actor Richard Greico; and American Idol first season runner up Justin Guarini.

Gone Country's third season will follow a similar format to its second season, which was won by former Skid Row frontman and Celebrity Rap Superstar contestant Sebastian Bach.

Each episode will follow the cast as they are individually teamed up with two Nashville songwriters to create a country single while also competing against each other in challenges that test their ability to musically and physically adapt to the country-crooner lifestyle. 

Following the cast's two-week crash course on everthing country, one of the contestants will be revealed as the winner and have their country song recorded and released as a single. John Rich -- who makes up half of the country duo Big & Rich and recently served as Nashville Star's sixth season host -- will reprise his Gone Country hosting role and also determine which of the show's participants will win the grand prize.

Production for Gone Country's third season is currently underway in Nashville, TN.

Gone Country is executive produced by David Garfinkle and Jay Renfroe of Renegade 83 Productions. Marc Oswald also serves as executive producer. Melanie Moreau and Bob Kusbit serve as executive producers for CMT.
