Naked Cowboy Gets a Reality Show
If you've ever been to Times Square in New York, chances are you've seen the "Naked Cowboy." Robert Burck has made a living playing country music on the sidewalks of the tourist mecca, wearing nothing but underwear, cowboy boots and a hat. He's tried several times to get a record deal, to no avail. But now, the Naked Cowboy is a naked TV host. CMT is reportedly in talks to air a reality competition show featuring Burck judging his street performing peers.
"I want to see people like me, the real deal," Burck tells the New York Post of his new gig. "I'm looking for character more than anything. You could be the greatest musician in the world, but if you stand in jeans and a T-shirt next to me, no one will notice you."
Burck has already signed a production deal with Bischoff Hervey Entertainment, the producers of 'Scott Baio is 45 ... and Single' and the upcoming 'Hulk Hogan's Celebrity Championship Wrestling,' which will air on CMT. But it is not confirmed yet whether CMT will air the Naked Cowboy's new show.
