Tara Conner to appear in January CMT reality show
In Nov. 20-26 Issue
By Derek Aaron
Times Journal Reporter

With already one reality television show reportedly in the works, former Miss USA and Russell County's own Tara Conner looks to be in for another with CMT's singing competition series "Gone Country," according to the Hollywood Reporter.

The third season of the reality series is expected to debut in January, according to media reports.

The show pits seven celebrities competing for country music stardom and will include musicians George Clinton and Sheila E., singer Taylor Dayne, Monkees lead vocalist/drummer Micky Dolenz, actor Richard Grieco and "American Idol" first-season runner-up Justin Guarini along with Conner.

The show is currently in production in Nashville, according to the reports. John Rich is slated to return as host of the Country Music Television series.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, the contestants will spend two weeks working with songwriters on a country song and at the end of two weeks, the celebrity whom Rich deems most prepared to impress a country audience will record and release their single to country radio.

Previous winners were Julio Iglesias Jr. in season one and former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach in season 2.

Earlier this year Conner reportedly signed on to host MTV's "LaDette to Lady."

That show was  reportedly set to start filming in London, England, this fall, with Conner's role being to transform several young women from "problematic to prim and proper while exposing details of her own tough times."

Conner appeared in last year's MTV reality television program, "Pageant Place," where she returned to the Miss Universe Organization to work as a mentor to the organization's present title holders. She has also been featured in several other MTV specials.

Conner, a 2004 Russell County High School graduate, has held the titles Miss Kentucky Teen USA 2002, Miss Kentucky County Fair 2004, Miss Kentucky USA 2006 and Miss USA 2006. She also garnered a top-five finish in the 2006 Miss Universe Pageant.
