Insert new column into CSV export using PHP and MySQL using MySQL value

I am creating a CSV export using PHP and a MySQL query.  I need to insert a column at the end of the column called PHOTO_URL similar to the Country column I am already inserting, the Country column you can see is hardcoded with USA value for all records.  The only difference is that I need to reference the column MLSID and then append a .jpg at the end like the MLSID.jpg and it be dynamic based for each record.

$host = 'localhost';
$user = 'mysqlUser';
$pass = 'myUserPass';
$db = 'myDatabase';
$table = 'products_info';
$file = 'export';

$link = mysql_connect($host, $user, $pass) or die("Can not connect." . mysql_error());
mysql_select_db($db) or die("Can not connect.");

$values = mysql_query("SELECT MLSID, COLUMN2, COLUMN3 FROM ".$table."");
$row = 0;
while ($rowr = mysql_fetch_assoc($values))
  if ($row == 0)
    foreach($rowr as $name => $value)
      $csv_output .= $name . "; ";
    $csv_output .= "Country". "; ";
    $csv_output .= "\n";

  foreach($rowr as $name => $value)
    $csv_output .= $value . "; ";
  $csv_output .= "USA". "; ";
  $csv_output .= "\n";

$filename = $file."_".date("Y-m-d_H-i",time());
header("Content-type: application/vnd.ms-excel");
header("Content-disposition: csv" . date("Y-m-d") . ".csv");
header( "Content-disposition: filename=".$filename.".csv");
print $csv_output;
