The idea of bringing together strange bedfellows to entertain the masses is as old as Gilligan's Island and The Gong Show.

More recently, the concept has been effectively demonstrated by ABC's Dancing With The Stars, among a never-ending string of reality shows.

The latest mashup is CMT's Gone Country, which brings together '80s R&B star BOBBY BROWN, former American Idol contestant Diana DeGarmo, Latin artist JULIO IGLESIAS JR., Brady Bunch principal Maureen McCormick, R&B artist SISQO, TWISTED SISTER frontman Dee Snider and singer/TV personality Carnie Wilson in a contest that nets the winner a country single release.

The ringmaster/pot stirrer/maestro/taskmaster for the show, which debuts January 25 on the network, is Big & Rich's John Rich.

Filmed in late October, Gone Country finds the contestants living together in the Plowboy Mansion, the 27,000-square-foot home north of Nashville co-owned by the Muzik Mafia, a genre-bending creative trust whose members include Rich, musical partner Big Kenny Alphin, Gretchen Wilson and Cowboy Troy
