He might not be fighting fires on The Bold and the Beautiful any more, but Lorenzo Lamas (ex-Hector) is certainly keeping himself busy. His latest project will see him vying for a country music career on CMT’s Gone Country.
Premiering in August, the second season of the reality show will see Lamas competing against Sebastian Bach (former lead singer of Skid Row), Irene Cara (actress from “Fame”), Mikalah Gordon (“American Idol” finalist), Jermaine Jackson (lead singer of the Jackson 5), Chris Kirkpatrick (formerly of N’Sync) and Sean Young (actress, “Blade Runner”) for a chance to record and release a song on country radio. Hosted by John Rich, of the country duo Big & Rich, the first season of Gone Country was the highest rated CMT series ever and saw Julio Iglesias Jr. taking home the grand prize.
Each celebrity will be paired with two Nashville songwriters who will help them write a country single. In addition to meeting with the songwriters, the cast will compete in challenges that test them both musically and physically to adapt to a life in country music, 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 their single on country radio.
Soaps.com wishes Lamas luck and can’t wait to see him don a pair of cowboy boots, while kickin' it country style!
