Little Big Town Hopes 'American Idol' Will Go Country

While Keith Urban and Brad Paisley are so far both only rumored to be in the running for a spot at the judge's table during the new season of "American Idol," the members of Little Big Town think the show's producers are certainly looking in the right direction.

"Either one would be great," Karen Fairchild says of Keith and Brad, pointing out that the show usually has a night every year where contestants are required to sing a country song. "Both would show off the format, and I can't wait for that. Both of those guys are so well-spoken and they are just consummate professionals and artists, writers, singers and players. I don't know how they would decide -- we love both of them so much."

LBT's Phillip Sweet says he's not sure, however, that the powers-that-be at "American Idol" understand the wide scope of country music, and that goes for the audience as well.

"They may have seen a narrower view of it, but to have someone in that seat is very important, because it might open the world's eyes to how broad and diverse the country genre really is," he reasons. "It's not all checkered shirts and cowboy hats. A lot of times people get dressed up that way at country-music festivals, but country music is so much more than that. It's so amazingly diverse. I think this would be a great way to show the rest of the world, that might not have tuned into country before, what it is all about."
