Just saw this on Blabbermouth and felt I had to share it... I hate to admit it but I will probably end up watching this show.. My wife is a big country music fan so we watch a lot of CMT around my house. (My fave CMT show, for reasons that should be obvious, is "Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders: Making The Team") :lol:

 

TWISTED SISTER Frontman 'Gone Country'? - Oct. 18, 2007

 

According to Country Standard Time, TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider is oen of seven artists who will take part in John Rich's "Gone Country" show airing in January 2008 on CMT. The six-episode series takes seven established performers from every realm of the entertainment and music industries and immerses them in all things country for a chance to break out as the next big country superstar. Production is currently underway in Nashville.

 

Other participants are Bobby Brown, Maureen McCormick, Carnie Wilson, Julio Iglesias Jr. and Maureen McCormick.

 

The show uproots these seven musical celebrities and moves them into a Nashville mansion together to embark on a two-week adventure, hosted by singer/songwriter John Rich of BIG & RICH fame.

 

Each singer will be paired up with Nashville songwriters to prepare them for a career in country music. In each episode, the cast competes against each other in challenges that will test them musically and physically to adapt to a country music lifestyle, both on and off the stage. At the end of the two weeks, the artist that is most prepared to impress a country audience, as determined by Rich, will record and release a song.

No biggie... like VH1, CMT is notorious for re-running the unholy crap out of their series... I'm sure I can catch it over the weekend... or hell, probably even later tonight...

I'm sure if Dee needs some inspiration and guidance on performing country material, he need look no further than ........Well, as Ian calls it, Bo and Luke's latest offering :lol:

I'm not into country, but the show wasn't bad, the best part was when Dee told JR he didn't like country music. Who is this JR guy anyway? I never heard of him?

 

He's John Rich, one half of the country duo Big & Rich. My wife has a couple of their CDs and they're actually pretty good. The other guy (Big Kenny) has described them as "Gangsta Country." Their videos are funny as hell. Lotsa hot chicks in'em, stuff blowin' up, midgets running around... they'd probably be hella fun to see in concert...

 

Some video evidence:

"Save A Horse, Ride A Cowboy"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oWMyPjWwaSo

 

"Comin' To Your City"

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VAFsCygHK84

 

"8th Of November" -- not a goofball song like the other two, this is a serious one; great track and fantastic video

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmHgwjXlsPY

 

By the way, I caught a rerun of "Gone Country" this afternoon and it was pretty funny. I liked when Dee flipped out on everybody due to lack of caffeine. :lol:

I caught the re-reun yesterday too and it's a good show so far.

 

I just hope Dee doesn't make himself look like an idiot like Sebastian Bach did on that Supergroup show.

John Rich just blew any creditability he had with me. Diana should have won this thing but Julio?? This is just an attempt to reach out to the latino community discuised as a competition. Carney was really good too and could have won. Bobby and Sisqo were very surprising and Maureen had a fantastic traditional country song and voice. Julio was in last place by a mile in my book and he wins??????? Dee's song I could see Travis Tritt or Hank Jr. doing that but not a good as Dee rocked it out live. that was fun.

I've been looking for this thread for a while but didn't realize it was in Heavy Metal.

 

Anyway yeah Julio winning last night knocked me right over. He had one of the worst songs and had the worst attitude of all of them. The guy hardly helped with anything. Maybe teamwork doesn't mean anything to JR.

As far as the songs go I agree with everything Mustang said. Dee did really screw himself by screaming f#@K and lifting his middle finger in the air. But I gotta give him respect for being himself. His song did rock and was so much better live than it was during the demo session. Diana should of won this competition based on who could be a bigger star right now. She looks good and she has a great voice and she's young. From the first episode JR made the comment to Julio that Country Music needed someone of a different style/background and it almost makes me think that this whole damn thing was fixed from the beginning. I knew Bobby, Sisqo and Carlie didn't have a shot. But I will admit that Maureen did really suprise me with her very solid Classic/Traditional Country song.

Totally!!! Totally!!! But the finger in the air and the "F" bomb... :yikes:

 

Maureen's song made me cry.....and to me, that's what country's all about. She shoulda won.

 

Julio was weak and basically sucked, imo. But he's hot.... :lol:

Dee got robbed. He shoulda won that thing, if only he hadn't flipped the bird and dropped the F-Bomb during his performance I think he woulda had it locked.

 

Julio had no business winning that thing. John Rich was obviously basing his decision on how Julio made all the little girls in that audience go crazy and thought "I can sell a sh*t load of CDs with this guy."

 

I hope Dee's song resurfaces at some point (even if he just posts it on his website or MySpace or something) cuz it rocked!! I'd like to have a copy of his tune.

    • Ok. I can understand your thinking regarding one`s favorite bands. In my case it was  Bon Jovi. First album I ever bought was Slippery, liked NEw Jersey even better. Saw them live few times, but after 1995 only some good songs on each album but still bought albums,  since Richie left I cant stand their latest albums or even live. So from that scenario I see that I am not just following my favorite bands regardles what they put out.     But in Tesla case I do stlll enjoy their releases, even those post 2010. A admit that Shock had some filler but also some of their best songs post 2000 like The Mission.   I do miss the heavier  element that Tommy brought. songs like  Dont de-rock me, Action talks.
    • Blondie on the right of the second shot is PERFECTION! 
    • In rough order.....   Dangerous Toys – Pissed Michael Sweet – Michael Sweet Motley Crue – Motley Crue Great White – Sail Away Gun – Swagger LA Guns – Vicious Circle Jackyl – Push Comes To Shove Cinderella – Still Climbing Electric Boys – Freewheelin’ Enuff Z Nuff - Seven Gilby Clarke – Pawnshop Guitars Juno Roxas – Far From Here Kiss – Kiss My Ass Alice Cooper – The Last Temptation Manic Eden – Manic Eden Big Bang Babies – Black Market Tuff – Fist First Freak Of Nature – Gathering Of The Freaks Sass Jordan – Rats Trixter – Undercovers The Heavy’s – Metal Marathon
    • Another one from this year that hasn't had much fanfare. These guys are always great value.  Very, very solid, Killer Hard Rock!!! I get a Robert Mason "vibe" with the vocals, which is always a good thing.                
    • Link to first single on its own:       I like it.
    • From the Frontiers Facebook page: Frontiers Music Srl is pleased to announce the signing of Enemy Eyes, a new melodic metal band fronted by vocalist Johnny Gioeli (Hardline, AXEL RUDI PELL OFFICIAL SITE, Crush 40).
