Outsider's Inn premiered on CMT on August 15, 2008. Gone Country cast mates, Maureen McCormick, Bobby Brown and Carnie Wilson are heading south again in the new reality series. The series begins when Maureen McCormick stumbles upon an inn that overlooks the Great Smoky Mountains and decides to lease it with the option to buy. Upon realizing the gravity of this undertaking, McCormick brings in Bobby Brown and Carnie Wilson to assist her in this new endeavor. Each cast mate takes over a specific duty within the inn: McCormick takes over management of the Inn and property; Brown becomes entertainment director; and Wilson assumes the role of master chef. Without much time to settle into their roles, guests start checking in and each episode features new eclectic houseguests, as well as new problems for the trio to tackle.
