OFFSTAGE: Carrie Underwood Thinks Idol Needs Keith Urban

out of the spotlight.)

Carrie Underwood is hoping the
news about Keith Urban joining American Idol is true. Or, at least,
that someone like him will sign on as a judge. Underwood
told The Tennessean newspaper in Nashville
, “I feel like we’ve heard just about every artist’s name under the sun
as far as who is going to be a judge, but I do think it would be wise to have a country person in.” She talked about Idol‘s
track record in country music, with her own success — and that of Scotty
McCreery
and Lauren Alaina. “There’s obviously a want for it [country
music] from the American Idol-watching audience because that’s who they are voting for,” she said. “So it makes sense
they would have somebody they know and love in as a judge.” And even though she claims to not know whether or not Urban has
really inked his deal, she says she’s excited as anyone else to see who gets the job. And if Urban is indeed the one, wouldn’t
it be nice for the new country judge and the former country winner to get together on a song? I could see an Urban/Underwood
duet during a classic country week. They could do any of Urban’s favorites: Waylon
Jennings
‘ “Are You Sure Hank Done It This Way,” Dolly Parton’s “Here
You Come Again” or Don Williams’ “Circle Driveway.”
