CMT’s Gone Country 2, the John Rich-hosted reality show that gives performers a crash course in country music, premieres tonight at 8 p.m. ET. You’ll want to tape it.
The new contestants include: Sean Young (pictured, with Rich, later in the season entertaining at a prison!!), Sebastian Bach, Lorenzo Lamas, Jermaine Jackson, ‘N Sync’s Chris Kirkpatrick, Irena Cara, and American Idol season 4 contestant Mikalah Gordon (who is far more entertaining than you’d expect, thanks in part to her crush on Lamas).
Sean Young quickly emerges the star of the show — never let her drive, never ask her to sing “Hey Good Lookin’ ” — and according to Bach, more good times are ahead: “I had quite a lot of conflict with Sean Young,” he says. “It actually centeredaround alcohol. Like Supergroup, this TV show has lots ofmoments of drunken mayhem, fighting, debauchery and craziness — onlynot from me this time.”
For more of my chat with the always candid Bach, click here. We covered everything from Gilmore Girls and his friendship with Axl Rose, to his ill-fated turn in Jesus Christ Superstar (“I think you got the wrong Jesus, dude. I think you got the wrong Jesus”) and his current tour with Poison (“The crew motto, which I thought was most appropriate, is, ‘Nice t–s. Get off my cables.’”)
We also talked about his hair care. PopWatch exclusive: He uses Nexxus.
