I guess it pays to play guitar "naked" after all. According to New York Post, a New York City street performer, "The Naked Cowboy", has signed on for his own reality series for the CMT Network.

The show will be American Idol-esque, with the "Cowboy" a.k.a. Robert Burck, judging other street performers like himself.

"I want to see people like me, the real deal," Burck said. He added, "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."

It isn't clear when this program will air on CMT and no production schedule has been announced.
