TV Critics Tour: CMT Takes Singers To The ‘Inn’


Beverly Hills, Calif.—Veterans of CMT's Gone Country reality singing competition will reappear on the network in a new reality show, Outsiders Inn.

Carnie Wilson, Maureen McCormick (pictured) and Bobby Brown will star in a partially scripted series beginning Aug. 15. The trio spent a month running a bed-and-breakfast in a small town in Tennessee known as Pigeon Manor. The network describes the show as Newhart meets The Surreal Life.

McCormick is the innkeeper, Wilson is the cook and Brown is the entertainment director, “because I like to have a good time,” the singer told critics at a network presentation.

The stars said they participated in activities new to them, such as Brown's foray into rural bear hunting. Usually when a bunch of rednecks go into the woods, “the dark one gets shot,” he said, explaining his reticence. But had fun, he added.
