Mr. Sulu goes country courtesy of Montgomery Gentry
Monday, April 7, 2008
– Montgomery Gentry will appear on the premiere episode of "Secret Talents Of The Stars" airing Tuesday, April 8 at 10 a.m. eastern/tape delayed Pacific on CBS. The duo joins the show to coach former "Star Trek" star, George Takei, as he preps for his country crooning debut.
"Man, how cool to be rockin' with Mr. Sulu. I'm such a Trekkie," said Eddie Montgomery. "Beam us up to the Semi-Finals."
Hosted by John O'Hurley ("Seinfeld," "Dancing With the Stars," "Family Feud"), each week celebrities will compete in a tournament-structured format to determine who has the best unknown talent. Each performer will fulfill his/her dream by practicing and then performing live, many supported by a headline production troupe. Each performance will be critiqued by actress Debbie Reynolds, singer Brian McKnight and television and film producer Gavin Polone, but viewers will vote for the celebrity that impresses them the most. Each week, the viewer vote will determine which celebrities move on in the competition and who will go home.

Where once Garth Brooks was criticized for not being country enough, today we have hip hop artists making cameos and artists like Sam Hunt topping the country charts with EDM songs. With no release since 2011's "Rebels on the Run," we see Montgomery Gentry return to a radically different country music scene than the one they were a part of at the turn of the century. Bro country has enjoyed a large amount of success in recent years, and it is arguable that this duo is one of the ...
