Is Brad Paisley The Next American Idol Judge?

Brad Paisley Idol

One rumor down, a thousand more to go. Now that American Idol 2013 has signed Mariah Carey as a new judge, there’s been endless speculation on who the other judge or judges might be. And if you’ve read any of my past posts, you know how much I hate writing about speculation. But this is sounding a little more likely than the others, so I thought I’d fill you in.

Country singer Brad Paisley is apparently in serious talks to be a judge in the 12th season of American Idol. According to The Country Vibe, Paisley is actually be in Los Angeles this week meeting with American Idol producers for the potential gig.

There were rumors last week that Brad Paisley  was in talks to possibly become a judge on the next season of American Idol, and sources have confirmed to The Country Vibe that Brad and his people will indeed be in Los Angeles this week meeting with top Idol executives about having him join the show.

Whether or not the next judge will be Paisley is anyone’s guess. But the rumors are strong that Idol execs are looking hard for a country judge. It works out pretty well for The Voice since they have Blake Shelton, so why not? American Idol  has never had a country judge. Is Paisley the right choice though? What do you think?
