JULIO IGLESIAS JR. was crowned the winner of CMT's reality show GONE COUNTRY last FRIDAY (3/7). For two weeks, he and cast members BOBBY BROWN, DEE SNIDER, DIANA DEGARMO, MAUREEN MCCORMICK, CARNIE WILSON and SISQO learned the Country lifestyle in order to prepare themselves to write a Country song with some of NASHVILLE's top songwriters. In the season finale each artist performed the song they wrote, and host JOHN RICH announced that JULIO took the top prize as the next Country star.
JULIO's single, "The Way I Want You," was co-written with TAMMY HYLER and JAMES SLATER, and has been released to Country radio today (3/10). For more info, check out www.juliojr.com.
