10/4/2012 (Courtesy — Good Morning! Blake Shelton and Keith Urban are both spending their fall working on TV talent competitions (“The Voice” and “American Idol,” respectively), but chances are fellow country star Gary Allan won’t be following suit.

“I think they serve their purpose,” the singer notes of the shows. “I would rather go see somebody at [Nashville venue] the Bluebird, or somebody who’s writing their stuff. It’s really hard for me.”

Gary acknowledges that several of music’s biggest stars, including Carrie Underwood, Scotty McCreery and Kelly Clarkson, all arrived by way of a TV talent show, but adds that the risks often outweigh the benefits.
