Monday All American Morning News with Eric Scott
country superstar is one of several artists the hit reality talent show has approached about filling a seat at the judges’ table. But Keith Urban fans, don’t hold your breath.
“They did reach out to us,” the singer confirms to Australian radio station Newstalk ZB. “But they’ve been reaching out to a lot of people, so I think they’re still figuring out which way they are going to go.”
Fellow country star Toby Keith has already turned down the opportunity to appear on “Idol,” while rumors continue to swirl that Brad Paisley has also been in talks with show’s producers. Keith dodged answering whether he would join returning judge Randy Jackson, along with newly-appointed judge Mariah Carey, for the show’s 12th season. But it doesn’t seem likely. “All I can say right now is that I’m trying to make an album, and it’s strange how these opportunities seem to all come in one big fell swoop,” he notes. “My priority right now is just making the record, and that’s really got to lead the charge for me.”
